  •  Jeff Sessions (none)
    Jeff Sessions is known for making outrageous comments.  He once called the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and National Association for Advancement for Colored People (NAACP) "un-American" and "communist inspired," and said they "force civil rights down the throats of people."  Sessions said of the Ku Klux Klan, "I used to think they're OK," until he found out some of them were "pot smokers."

    In 1986, Ronald Reagan nominated Sessions for a federal judgeship.  A Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee, knowing some of his previous outrageous comments, rejected the nomination.  (Arlen Specter voted against his nomination.)

    I posted this comment in another diary.
