I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
But for Kamala, Kamala,
That’s how conditions are.
Her brain will never function after sunup,
Each dawn the mental fog will reappear,
She doesn’t know a lot,
A genius she is not,
But happily-ever-advancing her career
My apologies to Lerner and Loewe, but the fantasy world in which Kamala Harris seems to live, playing the leading role of a noble queen fighting against imaginary injustice, reminds me “that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment, that was Camelot.”
Harris used her first “brief shining moment” in the limelight of the Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination hearings to showcase her liberal creds and position herself for a “congenial spot” on the national Democratic ticket in 2020. Now, with the Kavanaugh hearings in progress, Harris has another moment in which to dazzle the dimwitted and duplicitous.
Last year, in an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, Harris attempted to explain her opposition to Gorsuch, the gist being that Gorsuch promised to interpret the law as written, rather than legislate from the bench to advance the progressive agenda.
“Going forward, whether or not the court upholds justice hangs in the balance,” Harris warned – justice being whatever she upholds, injustice whatever a Republican nominee upholds.
As her ideal of justice, Harris cited the imperious attitude of late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall: “You do what you think is right and let the law catch up.”
We’ve had sixty years of justices who think they’re above the law and can assume the powers of another branch of government to implement radical changes in our culture without the consent of the people or their representatives.
The Camelot they created has had catastrophic consequences, among the worst: this now widespread idea that anyone can do what he thinks is right without regard to the law.
If the rule of men ever completely supplants the rule of law in America, we can thank people like Kamala Harris who aren’t smart enough to recognize their limitations.
