Personal Asides: Another Shake of the GOP Ticket Kaleidoscope Justice Ginsberg on Populations We Dont Want to Have Too Many of.
The other day I started inventing what I thought would be a winning state ticket for the Republicans. It somehow caught on. Mail came in with other suggestions and hence I give you another shake of the kaleidoscope to show other 2010 ticket possibilities these suggestions coming from both professional pols and movement people who want to the see Grand Old Party progress. To my surprise, many readers are keenly interested in GOP ticket-building. They have sent their ideas at Readers Comments on this blog and/or on my personal email at email@example.com. Feel free to comment and join the fray. This is not a poll or in any way a barometer of sentiment just suggestions.
For SenatorA new listing: Ron Gidwitz. Also Andrew McKenna and Rep. Mark Kirk whose name is accompanied by some criticism because of Kirks hapless vote for Cap `n Trade and his lip-synch of liberals in hate crimes support et al.
For GovernorSen. Kirk Dillard, Hinsdale, my personal choice because he is rock-solid on key issues, social policies, 2nd amendment and curtailed spending, has matchless credentials in governance experience.
For Lt. GovernorEveryone seems to agree: This should be a woman. Kathy Salvi, has dropped off the list because she is a personal injury attorney. Shes replaced by two downstaters, State Rep. Jill Tracy, Quincy, a formidable lawmaker who at first blush is catching up to Demetra Demonte, Pekin, Republican national committeewoman and popular grassroots movement leader. Both Tracy and Demonte are social conservatives.
For Attorney GeneralFervent support that Joe Birkett will elect to stay as a candidate against Lisa Madigan. but also Kathy Salvi of Lake county, a social conservative favorite who ran earlier for 8th district congress. It doesnt seem to bother people that Salvi is a personal injury lawyer when she is placed in the AG slot, although that may change.
For Secretary of StateEric Wallace, Ph.D a young, vigorous conservative African-American with a free market economic philosophy who can out-talk and out-perform the incumbent, an old-fashioned machine regular whos getting long in the tooth, Jesse White.
For ComptrollerAdam Andrzejewski (an-GEE-EFF-ski), Wheaton, self-made brilliantly successful entrepreneur who parlayed local phone books into multi-millions and who is making grassroots conservatives sit up and take notice with his formidable campaign as a newcomer. The incumbent, Dan Hynes, is dropping out, conceivably to run for governor.
For TreasurerState Sen. Dan Rutherford, Pontiac. State Sen. Alexi Giannoulias of Chicago wants to be the next Democratic U. S. Senator and is vacating the position.
For President of the Cook county BoardState Sen. Matt Murphy, Palatine, young, vigorous lawmaker who tops an earlier suggestion of Judy Baar Topinka for the post (people feel shes a re-tread), Murphy to face the winner of a hot primary between Todd Stroger, Rep. Danny Davis and Alderman Toni Preckwinkle , Chicagoans.
Ethnic Purity, Race Cleansing from the High Bench.
Yesterdays New York Times Magazine abstemiously politically correct as it always has features a full-dress syphocantic interview brimming with servile flattery with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by one Emily Bazelon, listed as a founding editor of Double X, Slates new Web site for women and the Truman Capote fellow at Yale Law School.
Yes, thats right: the Truman Capote fellow at Yale Law School! Its rather confounding when you wonder what possible legacy left by the deceased flaming gay libertine writer Capote would ever appertain to a law fellowship at Yale except that it might be what he willed as a postmortem put-on. Anyone holding the Truman Capote fellowship would have to live down the name of the legendarily bizarre perpetrator of the outrageous Masked Black and White Ball who died an inconsolable alcoholic and drug addict after his patron Babe Paley cut him adrift from New Yorks east side society because he had been caught lisping outrageous lies about her sexual habits and those of ex-friends Jacqueline Kennedy and her sister Lee Radziwell. How about the Perez Hilton Chair for the Truman Capote Fellowship? Oh well, thats decadent Ivy League education for you.
Reading the interview with Ginsburg you are almost droned to sleep with run-of-the-mill liberal pablum quite unremarkable stuff until you come to the question concerning Roe v. Wade and bewailing the clichéd tragedy of the lack of Medicaid for abortions for poor women. Ginsburg purred an entirely liberally palatable answer citing the ruling Harris v. McRae the 1980 ruling where the court upheld the Hyde amendment which forbade use of Medicaid for abortions . but then stumbled into this horrifying Buchenwald-like palaver:
Frankly I had thought at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in population that we dont want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.
Ginsburg doesnt think for a second of the phenomenal irony of a Jew citing racial cleansing. And of course the distinguished Truman Capote Fellow of Yale Law School doesnt either. Of course the genre of population controllers is indebted to the patroness of abortion, Margaret Sanger of Planned Parenthood who wrote--
Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need. We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.
And Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
And Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
And We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.
Followed by this word of caution to her allies:
We dont want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.
At least Sanger feared the consequences of her Hitlerian approach. It never occurs to Ginsburg nor to Bazelon nor to the editor of The New York Times magazine. Or The New York Times itself.
Chilling isnt it? But it would warm Rudolph Heydrichs dead heart.
