Personal Attacks Are Losing Value

One reason I left the fold of liberal political allegience was the failure to follow any principles. The liberals who are solely represented in the Democrat Party would dub every conservative as evil, Anti-Semitic, craven and any other negative term you can come up with. I began to think "All, all of them cannot be that bad". Then, I would hear a Bill Buckley or Jack Kemp speak and besides their making coherent and logical arguments, I would see people wrestling with modern day issues and attempting to find solutions. The other side, to which I was still a part, rarely offered as persuasive arguments.

Per Mark Levin, the rest of the country is seeing through the smokescreen of personal attack in the Alito hearing. Levin wrote:

The liberal senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee look frustrated and sound incoherent because, well, they are. Their problem is that when you don't have fidelity to the written Constitution, your judicial philosophy, such as it is, consists of nothing more than strained and often contradictory arguments made for the purpose of advancing a political and policy agenda. Hence, we hear Dianne Feinstein demand from Alito adherence to judicial precedent respecting Roe v. Wade (Arlen Specter refers to is as super-precedent), and in the next breath acceptance of something called a living and breathing Constitution.

As for Borking — the smearing of conservative Supreme Court nominees through blatant dissembling about their character and thinking — it falls flat today because the American people have become largely immune to the strategy. It has been unleashed with such frequency and fury during the last 20 years that even a casual observer understands that every conservative nominee cannot possibly be a racist, sexist, and unethical pervert. And the left-wing groups that serve this poison, such as Hollywood's People for the (Un)American Way and the radical Alliance for (In)Justice, have lost what little credibility they once may have had with the public.
