Byrd at it again

When discussing Bush’s nominee for the high court, Sen. Robert Byrd went off on one of his tirades.

"One's life is probably in no greater danger in the jungles of deepest Africa than in the jungles of America's large cities," he writes. "In my judgment, much of the problem has been brought about by the mollycoddling of criminals by some of the liberal judges who have been placed on the nation's courts in recent years."

I call on Trillin and DFL Chair Brian Melendez to denounce Byrd’s remarks.
