The Funniest Post
The New York Times has a look at how Alito is prepping for his hearings. It's a marvelous example of how each side is trying their own spin. Since, we really have no news and everything is just anonymous aides and associates whispering into the reporter's ear, they can say anything they want and who's to differ?No kidding! I hope the practice will have served them well. The NY Times ought to be writing stories about the senators' political futures rather than Alito's practice sessions. Given the prevailing attitude toward Congress these days, they had better tighten up and try to look as if they had done their homework and as if they took their responsibilities seriously. It's 2006.
Gee, just what we want in a Supreme Court justice - an Everyman who also coaches Little League. But maybe that will address Senator Feinstein's objections to John Roberts as not being a man who had suffered what ordinary people have to suffer.
Of course, why we should pay attention to unnamed party strategists is beyond me, but then, I'm not a New York Times reporter. He couldn't find any Democrat to go on record on whether or not a filibuster is a good idea politically?
So, here is what we can expect. He'll have a poor choice of tie and his hair will be mussed, but he won't drink during his testimony. And, he'll remind us once again, that the Senate Judiciary Committee is not composed of mental giants. /span>
