Jeff Sessions is an evil little troll.

And he’s my Senator!

I didn’t vote for him.

That’s always good

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions lectures Senate on judicial philosophy –

Nothing like being lectured on history by the dumb guy who thinks he’s an expert.

Sessions really is quite stupid, you know

But except for civil rights cases, Sessions was a great boss!

So the Republican Party is popeyed and slackjawed?

Matthew Yglesias » Sessions Explains that Racially Charged Remarks Were Taken “Out of Context,” Declines to Provide the Context

The context is that he was a Republican in Alabama in the early eighties. It’s totally unfair to hold that against him now! He wouldn’t say that sort of thing now, if there was any chance of it being repeated. Not about black people, anyway.

Far Right Sen. Sessions To Take Over For Specter On Judiciary Committee…For Now | TPMDC

He’s just holding down the fort for Chuck Grassley to take the job in 2011, assuming Grassley runs for and wins re-election. The ELT will therefore get to bring his own special brand of wingnuttiness to the upcoming confirmation hearings for whomever President Obama appoints to the Supreme Court. He will thereby earn a sort of immortality on The Daily Show and Saturday Night Live, and probably the presidential endorsements of wingnut bloggers.

Wingnuts want Sessions

I always thought he was the dumbest person in Congress. I guess I was wrong. He’s still pretty dumb.

What Does Specter’s Switch Mean For The Committees? | TPMDC

But for now, keep in mind that the next most senior minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee is Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT). He used to chair that committee, and there may be term limit rules that prevent him from taking Specter’s place. Behind Hatch are Iowa’s Chuck Grassley (ranking member on Senate Finance) and Arizona’s Jon Kyl (the minority whip). If they don’t swap out those coveted positions for Specter’s slot on Judiciary, next in line would be…Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).

Let me just tell the Republicans that you do not want the Evil Little Troll as your captain in a future Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Trust me. He’s extremely stupid and will say what he thinks.

Not since Miss Johnson’s kindergarten class on Friday has there been such a collision of massive intellects.
