Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Sen Ted Kennedy (D-MA) got into a spat during Wednesday's confirmation hearing for Judge Samuel Alito (right).
Seems it was all a misunderstanding.
Sen Kennedy had requested Sen Specter to request papers from William Rusher detailing Judge Alito's involvement in Concerned Alumni of Princeton.
Sen Specter didn't remember it. Said later it was a "computer letter."
That's apparently what us young whipper-nappers call an "e-mail."
Can't trust them new-fangled computafiers. They're the devil's toy box. All them electrons and pixels racing around the Internets. Can't trust anything that ain't written on parchment with a quill, consarn it!
As Strom Thurmond would say: "Talk into the machine."
