Fear of Trials

Excellent post by Steve Benen:

When one cuts through the nonsense and poll-tested soundbites, the right's opposition to fair trials comes down to fear -- fear that our principles are aren't worth honoring, fear that our rule of law is somehow flawed, fear that radical thugs have acquired supernatural powers. It's just blinding, irrational fear.

I think it is sheer cowardice. Mitch McConnell sounds like Little Miss Muffet just after she saw a spider. He's doing everything short of jumping up and down squealing "Eek!"
