In hearing some of the left going bonkers over Alito (Schumer, the memo Chris Matthews read) makes me think back to the Ginsburg and Breyer nominations. It's too bad that one side plays extremely dirty (and consistently) and will say and do anything to win. It's not just one or two folks but a standard approach for the left. Let's get busy with the hearings and get to an up or down vote.
I also have to laugh about the interpretation of why many conservatives were against Miers. The MSM wants you to think it was because she wasn't conservative enough. That wasn't the issue, it was that she wasn't qualified. Sure, she'd have probably voted with Scalia and Thomas but did not have the experience necessary to be on the court. I'd never think that the left would have the guts to go against someone who wasn't qualified if they were a sure pro-choice vote.Posted by Tim at October 31, 2005 09:47 PM
