The Nuclear Option?


"First, because you've been named to replace Sandra Day O'Connor, the pivotal swing vote on a divided court; second, because you seem to have been picked to placate the extreme right wing after the hasty withdrawal of Harriet Miers; and, finally, and most importantly, because your record of opinions and statements on a number of critical constitutional questions seems quite extreme."

Sen. Schumer on why Alito's burden of proof is especially high.

Pretty well sums up my view on Alito. When Bush's unconstitutional wiretapping (aka the data mining project) goes to the supreme court and they give it the green light cause the senate dems didn't stand up and say, enough is enough--

I'll say I told you so.

Bush will smirk.

Executive power will go unchecked.

And the war will rage.

Feingold, Reid and Kennedy need to have the guts to lead a filibuster if necessary. If not this guy, who?

and Frist with his insider-trading scandal about to break is weak -- he won't be able to invoke the so-called "nuclear option."

hopefully it won't get to that point, and enough Republicans will see through his b.s.

I am so sick to death of the Democrats. Hillary Clinton can bite me, with her let's-soften-our-stance-on-abortion crap. I am almost as disgusted with them as I am with the Republicans. There are a few good ones, like Russ Feingold and Paul Hackett looks interesting so far, but the rest of the bastards can go to hell as far as I am concerned :)

I may be late to the party, but I agree.

How freaking evil and deluded does the GOP have to get before people will realize it? Why do people that make under 300K a year vote Republican? ARGH!
