News From The Right

November 10, 2004


Human Events' Terence Jeffrey on Attorney General John Ashcroft: "When Bush first nominated Ashcroft, Time magazine derided the choice. Said Time: 'The teetotaling son of a famed Pentecostal minister, Ashcroft, a onetime Missouri governor so strict that he refused to dance at his own inaugural ball, is the kind of hard-line conservative who makes liberal toes curl.'

Senator Specter is also one of those people who is often wrong but never in doubt. He has mangled the meaning of such basic concepts as "judicial activism" and "original intent." It would be a tragedy for him to become chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he could mangle nominees and in the process mangle the Constitution of the United States." Read
