Why is Perkins afraid

Tony Perkins seems to be afraid that Dobson will be called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, afraid enough to issue a veiled threat.

I received the following email on Monday. It was also posted on the Family Research Council website until about an hour ago, but for some reason, they removed it.

Dr. Dobson as a Witness?
To: Friends of Family Research Council
From: Tony Perkins, President
Date: October 24, 2005 - Monday
==============================
Please forward this to your Friends and Family!
==============================

In This Edition:

3) Beam and Mote Time

Dr. Dobson as a Witness?

Dr. James Dobson has been witnessing for decades, but now
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter (R-Penn.)
says he is likely to summon Dr. Dobson to testify before
his panel as it considers the nomination of Harriet Miers
for the Supreme Court. "My instinct is that they'll be
called. And the American people are entitled to
clarification," Specter told CBS's "Face the Nation"
yesterday. Specter was referring not only to the President
of Focus on the Family, but also to other Evangelical
leaders. The Senator may not be a regular listener to Dr.
Dobson's nationally broadcast Focus on the Family program,
but his staff should at least inform him that Dr. Dobson
has already clarified his remarks before a radio audience
of millions. Any effort to haul Dr. Dobson before the
Committee should be seen for what it is--political
grandstanding.

But if the Committee is intent on getting the whole story
of judicial confirmations on record, they might start by
examining the relationship between some Judiciary Committee
members and staff and liberal outside groups. These groups
sought to block Miguel Estrada's confirmation. Committee
files showed that Estrada was opposed for a seat on a U.S.
Appeals Court because liberals did not want an Hispanic
conservative "on deck" to be named to the U.S. Supreme
Court. Now, that would be a clarification that Americans
genuinely need.

General! Oops! Patriotboy,

It would be best if you turned on word verification and cleaned up the spam. Otherwise, wonderful job as usual.

Where else would we get this information? I'm not signing up for those email lists!

Sincerely,

I love the implication that "testifying to a Congressional committee under oath" is the equivalent of "reading scripted remarks to a radio audience."

Or maybe I should flip those around the other way.

Obviously, Perkins is justly concerned that Dobson may spontaneously combust when he puts his hand on the bible to be sworn in!
