Wasting everybody's time
Apologies to all of Polimom's friends who perhaps support the fillibuster effort, but I sure wish these folks would find something productive to do with their time and energy.
Democrats launch effort to block Alito confirmation
This crop of Democrats is apparently unable to find anything other than lost causes to champion. Alito was not the worst we could have ended up with from this administration... by a long shot.
Update 4:47 pm: The grand gesture has been made, and that's that. For the record - Alito would not have been my choice, either. But once the die was cast with this administration (and the religious conservatives), the best we could hope for was... well... somebody like Alito.
