Belaboring the Obvious

America, meet your modern GOP....

TPM dug up the transcripts of Jeff Sessions' hearing for a district court judgeship back in 1986, and the excerpts, so far, have been real howlers, including one that defies explication. One of Sessions' staffers in his US Attorney's office testified that "during a 1981 murder investigation involving the Ku Klux Klan, Sessions was heard by several colleagues commenting that he 'used to think they [the Klan] were OK' until he found out some of them were 'pot smokers.'"

In the midst of a murder investigation?

One wonders if, had the KKK gone on a murderous rampage under the influence of Jim Beam, would Sessions have thought there were mitigating circumstances? Doesn't Sessions understand that the pot-smoking contingent of the KKK would be the one least likely to be out bludgeoning and shooting the uppity ones for fun?

Oh, wait a minute... suddenly, I see the logic....
