Leahy: Radical Roberts Has 'Wayback' Machine

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) today labeled Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts an "eager and aggressive... radical" who is even more dangerous because he now owns a 'Wayback' machine. According to Leahy, Roberts' views are "among the most radical being offered... intent on reversing decades of policies on civil rights, voting rights, women's rights, privacy and access to justice."

If it is true that nominee Roberts does indeed have a 'Wayback' machine, then it would be possible for him to alter political history forever... literally. He could simply go back in time, infiltrate the Supreme Court and reverse dozens of decisions. Liberals fear his mere presence in the past because of his vastly superior and persuasive intellect. "He must be stopped at all costs", said Leahy.

Exactly how Roberts obtained a 'Wayback' machine is still unclear. When last seen, the machine was still in the possession of Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman. DNC insiders theorize that the "Radical Roberts" snuck into Mr. Peabody's den and stole the device between episodes of "The Rocky & Bullwinkle" show.

Neither Peabody nor Sherman could be reached for comment.

It would stretch my imagination about as much as time travel. They are shooting themselves again. I wonder what will hapeen when 06 midterms put hem right out of contention for any form of power?

Mack,
Yes! And it's just so fun to make up silly little stories about their idiocy. They don't even realize how out of touch they are with America. That's the beauty of it! If they woke up and moved just a bit toward the center... if they started to act like statesmen instead of "girly" men... then we might have something to worry about. As long as they yell and scream and stand so far to the left that they are no longer in camera range... we got it made.

He probably got it from a Senator; they seem like a bunch of cartoon characters themselves these days...

The next thing you know he will be accused of stealing the 3D-BB, or 3 diamentional blackboard from another 60's cartoon!

After all it will be easy now that he possess's the "wayback machine".

I want to see if he can get me Marilyn Monroe and James Dean's autographs, even if Mickey Mantle's would be worth MUCH more!

Everyone knows that he got the Way Back Machine from Sandy Berger.

BTW....Leahy himself goes waaaay back. He looks like ...."death eatin' a cracker."

Kajun,
Very "pithy" indeed... but feel free to "bloviate" on occasion. I'm not Bill O'Reilly, and this is NOT the "No-Spin Zone". In fact, I'm always spinnin' some yarn.

Wait for it...here it comes...

Camo,
Yes indeedy... in fact, there's gotta be a new article in that idea somewhere. Stay tuned.

Maggie,
Yeah, stealing a "Wayback" machine has got to be a lot easier than taking documents from the National Archives... but can you imagine the bulge it would make in his socks?

"death eatin' a cracker"...? Wow, that's a new one on me! You have such a way with words.

RAM,
I couldn't remember where that was from, so I looked it up and found...

Phineas J. Whoopee used the 3D BB (Three Dimensional Blackboard) to explain things to Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley on "Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales."

WHOOPEE!

I wait for the day when these people reap what the sow. I can't understand idiots like this and as much as I want to be civil this woman enrages me.

That's all I need to hear is that the LibDems are in posession of a WayBack machine!

Things are bad enough as it is with them having cell phones and PDFs, but now all we're gonna hear is "way back when..." Democrats had brains, Democrats were patriotic, Democrats were honest, ad infinitum. Of course if the machine took them all waaaay back, say 350 million years, they would be with their ancestors, the Veloceraptor and they could all try to avoid TK Rex, especially near water! As a matter of fact, a bag of bones said to resemble Nancy Pelosi has been found in China and given the name Jawbonus Protrudus.

Kajun & Maggie,
Having lived in Florida for five years, I heard a few good Suthern' sayings myself. (Please excuse the more graphic ones)....

--He's busier than a bee in a tar bucket.

--That's slicker than snot on a pump handle.

--It's colder than a witch's teat.

--That's 'bout as useful as a teat on a bull.

--Keep workin' boys... All I wanna see is a$$oles and elbows.

Again, my apologies to anyone who might be offended, but please know that such sayings were about as common as somebody in New York saying...
"How ya dooin'... How YOU dooin'..."

Busier'n a one leg-ged man at an arse kickin!

Shines like a 400 watt bulb in an outhouse!

I'll knock one outta you longer'n a whistle on a train!

That last one usually said by an 85 year old man.

PanamaRed,
I'm just hoping that if Roberts has the "Wayback" machine that he will take us back to the time of the Framers of the Constitution. We couldn't get much better than that.

Kajun,
"I'll knock one outta you longer'n a whistle on a train!"

So how long is that anyway? Perhaps 15 inches?.... or more like 56 seconds?

Boris, buddy:
The Federalists' team cheer is "Push 'em back, push 'em back ...waaaay back". Works for me. And my Constitution.
Don't you long for the good old days of "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" and "Spy vs Spy" in Mad?

Say, can I get someone to use this "WAY BACK" machine to round up some mint LIONEL trains from 'da late Forties and Fifties?

maggie: what kinda cracker is that? Can we distribute them to the dems with adverse (positive) effects? Aren't crackers from the south? How many dems could we conceivably send back to prehistoric times. Talk about cleaning up the environment! Some of those old congress people look like they belong in a wax museum.

I'm right there with ya good buddy. I'd like to get back my shoebox full of baseball cards... Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Rocky Colavito, Luis Aparicio, Moose Skowron (who I met once), Ron Hansen, Stan Musial... oh, those WERE the days!

LebenFrei,
My daughter was born in Florida, so she officially qualifies as a "cracker". Bad idea though about sending the Dems back to prehistoric times... given more time, they'll screw things up even worse!

onlineanalyst,
You want us get rid of Congressman for you? Good. I got plan from Mr. Big... better plan than one for Moose and Squirrel. It's a real DOOOSEY. Let's go Natasha.
