You Just Can't Be Too Conservative Part III

We have been hearing for months how John Kerry and John Edwards where "too liberal", to lead the nation. Why is it that one can be too liberal by apparently there is no way to be too conservative?

Barbara Cubin - Newly re-elected Representative from Wyoming

"Cubin, who supports the bill, was complaining about a failed Democratic amendment that would have banned gun sales to drug addicts or people undergoing drug treatment. 'So does that mean that if you go into a black community, you can't sell any guns to any black person?' she asked."

She went on to explain,
"If I had been able to finish my sentence and my thought, it would have stated that I don't believe in stereotyping anyone, anytime, ever, for anything," Cubin said. "That's what I believe and I believe that from the bottom of my heart."
Oh really?

How is this for a flip flop?

"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg should recuse herself from any Supreme
Court rulings on abortion, Rep.
Barbara Cubin, R-Wyo., said, alleging a conflict of interest. On March 17, Cubin and 12 other House members sent a letter to Ginsberg asking her to recuse herself from any cases involving the National Organization for Women's Legal Defense and Education Fund. The partial birth abortion law is expected to end up in front of the Supreme Court. Ginsberg was a member of the board of the National Organization for Women's Legal Defense and Education Fund for a brief time in the 1970s and the organization has an annual Ruth Bader Ginsburg Lecture Series on Women and the Law. Ginsberg gave the opening remarks at this year's lecture series and is prominently featured on the organization's Web site: (http://www.nowldef.org/)."

Any yet...

"On another Supreme Court case, Cubin said, Justice Antonin Scalia should proceed with his involvement in a Sierra Club lawsuit against his hunting companion Vice President Dick Cheney. The Sierra Club has filed a lawsuit to require Cheney to reveal who he met with while crafting a national energy plan. The case is before the Supreme Court. In early January, Scalia and Cheney were part of a group that went duck hunting in Louisiana. Scalia flew down on Cheney's vice presidential jet. Scalia has rejected the call by newspaper editorial pagesthroughout the country to recuse himself from the Sierra Club case. 'The bottom line is that Justice Ginsberg is helping a pro-abortion group,' Cubin said. 'The worst thing that Scalia is accused of is being Vice President Cheney's friend and hitching a ride on the vice president's plane.' Cubin is confident thatCheney and Scalia did not discuss the Sierra Club case."

Right...because Cheney would never do anything...illegal...would he?

So let me get this straight. If a Supreme Court Justice once worked for group that is Pro-Choice you must sit out every case dealing with abortion, but if you are close personal hunting buddies with the VP you should stay in there and fight when he comes before the court? Interesting.

Here is something sort of scary. Tom Coburn, Dick Cheney, Barbara Cubin and me are all from the same city...Casper, Wyoming. One of these things is not like the others...one of these thing just doesn't belong.

Stay tuned for more completely sane Conservatives.
