The U S senate has a plethora of pompous and arrogant asses. They range from Republican pontificators to Democrat platitudenors. The leaders in these catagories are Trent Lott and Leaky Leahy. These two better look to their laurels they have just been challenged by Senator Chuck Schumer who stated that no new supreme court justices would be confirmed " unless they conformed to mainstream American values". Guess who decides what are "mainstream values".? Why , obviously that talented savant Senator Schumer. Hubris? Heck no , asinine confidence in his own abilities, which he assuredly posesses , derived from constant accolades of his sychophantic staff. Does anybody ever tell these preening peacocks they have no feathers?
