I found this gem while doing some research on Samuel Alito. DemocracyNow! provides a transcipt of a recent interview of Jesse Jackson conducted by Amy Goodman. From the interview (emphasis added):
AMY GOODMAN: I mean, you don’t agree with President Bush, but he has the right to choose the Supreme Court justice. Of course, they have to be confirmed by the Senate.
REV. JESSE JACKSON: He has the right to recommend. We have the right to resist. His recommendations are not in our interest, and therefore, we must resist his recommendations. He does not have the right to appoint unilaterally by fiat. And we would be ridiculously stupid not to resist that which is not in our interest.
What a blithering idiot!
