1) HOW DARE THE STRIB SULLY THE METRO SECTION WITH A CONSERVATIVE!!!!
Can there be any doubt that Katherine Kersen is nothing more or less than a hard-wired, hard-edge opinion writer whose only place in the paper, if she has one at all, is on the opinion pages? Someone who is too blinded by dogma to understand that gratuitously insulting Catholics and the archbishop in the news section of the paper is not good journalism and not welcome by its readers.

Hey! It works!
I wonder if Mr. Ursu complained when Coleman was hired by the Strib a couple years back? I encourage all KAR readers to call him and ask. I'm sure he's in the book.
2) I WANNA BE A CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR WHEN I GROW UP!!!!!
Sonja Swiatkiewicz's May 27 letter shows that she needs to reread Article II, Sec. 2 of the U.S. Constitution. Here is an exact quote "... and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States ...."
The Constitution does not mandate an up or down vote. To say that it does is simply wrong. It is tragic when a manager of media communication and constituent communication spreads falsehoods that dangerously mislead the public.

Merely quoting the Constitution does not prove the point. This fool (and others like him) should only be allowed to discuss this topic if they can answer the following question:
Under the Constitution, does the Senate's failure to vote on a Presidential apointee constitute a withholding of consent, or a waiver of the Senate's right to advise and consent? Support your answer.
Wow! Do you hear all those moonbat heads exploding?
See ya Monday - if you're lucky. Tuesday if I'm lucky.
