Mrs. Alito pitched a staged fit during Senator Graham’s questioning and left the hearing room in tears so that Wolf Blitzer could complain about how evil those nasty Democrats are with their hard kweschins ( oops I mean questions). Let the woman cry her eyes out. I don’t give a hoot about her crocodile tears. It is the future of jurisprudence in the United States and the effect it will have on the lives of millions of American that is at stake with this nomination. She is not getting any brownie points for that. I am not swayed nor do I have any sympathy for her. Heck…what is supposedly her plight? That Democrats are mean to little old sammy. Give me a break. Now on to the husband.
I think it’s been pretty well established that Alito will say anything to get a job, including Supreme Court Justice, and the truth be damned. I think, this nomination is going to be pretty much a party-line vote, and there will be a lot of pressure to filibuster. If Joe Lieberman of all people will not rule out a filibuster then the gang of fourteen will split on this one. And if that crooked weasel Bill Frist wants to try and invoke the nuclear option let him try. I’m not sure he could pull it off in the first place, and if he does, Harry Reid should procedurally shut down the Senate. It is time to call the Republicans bluff.
