Alito, cont'd. 

I'm reminded, listening to some of these Democrats on the committee, that it's really not their fault--i.e., that they're sitting on a kangaroo committee chaired by a pompous corpse*. I mean of course (insofar as they belong to the party of professional losers) it's partly their fault--but it's more the fault of the stupid-ass thanatophilic "American people" who went (or more likely didn't go) to the voting booth.

You know, I just can't wait till the "American people" realize, after Alito is confirmed, how they've voted away their rights, voted away their environment, voted away their civil society, voted away a large chunk of their humanity.

Except, oh yeah, I forgot...they won't realize any of that because they're too fucking stupid!! Or if they do notice that "things" seem to have gotten worse, they'll attribute it to forces akin to natural phenomena, or perhaps Hollywood, or the Democrats.

* It's really just sick. As Atrios just posted:

Specter tried to claim he hadn't seen Kennedy's letter, so Kennedy introduced Specter's response to that letter into the record.

Call Arlen Specter's office and ask if this is what the senator considers to be "distinguished" behavior for a U.S. senator.
