I suppose I should be posting about the story o' the week, Judge Alito's confirmation hearings, like a good little blogger, but frankly find myself not caring a whole lot. I suppose it would be different if it were someone I disagree with, but the 20-30 minutes of the hearing I watched a couple of days ago and the few transcripts I've read pretty much say it all for me. He's got the right attitude - not deciding based on pet causes, impartiality... honestly, who wouldn't want a judge like this sitting on the Supreme Court?

Oh yeah... These guys. Wow, what a bunch of pricks. This is why i can't read Kos. Such self-righteous elitism... it's astounding coming from people who purport to care about the "little guy". It's clear they haven't got a clue what they're talking about; maybe getting smarter on real life and abandoning their fantasy land will win them an election someday. I'm curious which confirmation hearing they were watching.

OBTW: If you really want to read some good items about the whole Alito non-story, check out Crazy P with a couple good round-up posts and Power Line'always brilliant legal perspective.

Actually, it wasn't the Democrats who made Mrs. Alito cry. It was Republican senator Lindsay Graham, who read off a list of things that were allegedly said about her husband. Given that it was a Republican senator, doesn't that seem to indicate some kind of complicity?

And why do we have confirmation hearings anyway? What did we learn about John Roberts during his hearing that we didn't already know? The whole judicial hearing process for Supreme Court nominees is antiquated and just plain time-consuming.
