Alito: Finito.

Bush's latest blunder comes in the form of nominating Anton Scolia-Lite, a radical right-wing judge named Samuel Alito.
He's a choice sure to mollify Bush's right-wing nutter base, but he's not a judge who will unify our splintered nation.
Bush has already proven he has serious picker problems when he tried to foist Harriet Miers off on us. This latest nominee is a dark menace.
I hope the Democrats filibuster this jackass until their vocal cords fray.

Karen, I cannot agree with you more. This guy wants to take us way back to the past. We need someone who will recognize the rights of all Americans. I do hope that everyone will come together to oppose this choice.

I wonder...if the Dems DO try to filibuster, will the repubes pull the nuclear option out again?

This time they have nothing to lose - their party is going to hell in a handbasket right about now anyway.

The drums already are pounding against this latest right-wing dork.
Bush selected him-so we know he's another partisan Neanderthal with a discriminatory agenda.
I can't wait till MoveOn gets their talons into him.

How great is it that nothing Bush does at this point turns out okay, nothing.

With Rove busy trying to keep his guilty butt out of prison, its obvious Bush et al are having to make their own very stupid choices. Can anyone believe that Frist paraded Alito through Rosa Parks' memorial for the photo opp? I wouldn't have been at all surprised if Rosa rolled over when those two idiots walked past her casket.

Over the weekend Pat Buchanan said several times on CNN that by next Friday Libby's name would be totally out of the press. Pat said all Bush would have to do to accomplish that is immediately nominate another Ass. Justice and the press would drop Libby's story like a hot potato. W must've been watching tv for some pointers because that's exactly what he did.

Anyway, I'm thinking most of the R's will turn on Alito like dogs because unlike Bush, they don't want to be flunkies for a bunch of right wing nuts.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I too was horrified when Frist dragged Scolito by Rosa Parks casket.
Nothing like politicizing a cause they didn't believe in then and don't believe in now, eh?
Libby may be out of the MSM for now, but the Blogosphere has changed how we get our news.
I think it's good. It gives St. Patrick Fitzgerald some elbow room to nail the rest of these treasonous sociopaths in the West Wing.

jesus I was so pissed when I saw Frist and that fucknut Alito walking past Mrs. Parks casket.

I heard today that Bush is saying that the dems have twice confirmed Alito and there is no excuse to jerk him out now..

If the dems did rubberstamp this dipshit twice..that doesnt look good at all. The public will see any bitching by the dems as just partisanship.

The Educated Eclectic said...

Alito is in...we have not had a Democratic party for more years than most realize.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I don't think Alito is in, per se.
Considering Bush's fuckup with the Miers nomination, any Senator worth his or her salt had better step up and microscope this little fascist but good.
C-Span will be getting some big coverage.

Karen Zipdrive said...

(next day)
Nope! The Democrats are lining up to filibuster this Bush puppet and the GOP are lining up to change the filibuster rules.
Use it or lose it, Demos.

Alito is a conservative but, as far as I can tell, he is no wingnut and will be difficult to block. He's very smart and may grow in office. I wouldn't pick him for SCOTUS, but he doesn't appear as bad as some of the candidates Bush was considering.

Karen Zipdrive said...

To hell with all that. If Bush picked him, he's a crook with an agenda.

Holly in Cincinnati said...

Maybe so, but right now nobody else gets to pick the SCOTUS nominees.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Yeah, but the Senate can still filibuster the shit out of the nomination and make enough racket to further embarrass the Pinhead-in-Chief.
