Senator Arlen Spector just announced that the William Rusher papers will now be made available to the committee voluntarily by Rusher himself, removing the need for the subpoena that Ted Kennedy demanded. Word around the Capitol has it that the New York Times did an extensive research project on the Rusher papers -- and found absolutely nothing. Kennedy is about to come up with major egg on his face when Rusher's papers turn into Al Capone's vault.
In my mind, it still sets a bad example to use someone else's papers to look for smears on a candidate that has no connection to the owner of the records. Perhaps it's marginally eased by the lack of a subpoena, but the notion that somehow Alito can be disqualified by having read the Prospect or the National Review is exactly what the Democrats have argued against in their opposition to the PATRIOT Act. It's a disgusting way to treat a dedicated public servant.Sphere It View blog reactions
