It's Pronounced Justice Alito

Friday, January 13, 2006

It's been an interesting week, to say the least, regarding the judicial hearings of Judge Samuel Alito. As expected the Republicans on the committee fawned and pampered him while the Democrats desperately sought a weakness to no avail. They were however able to make Mrs. Alito leave the room in tears after hours of berating the nominee.

Like it or not Alito will be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court.

Democrats should lick their wounds and put the hearings behind them. Elections are just around the corner and the Abramoff scandal can become a big part of that. GOP leadership is almost nonexistent and a smart strategy from the Left can help reduce Republican majority in either house.
