Democrats - Face-Timing Away Our Rights
On this Friday the 13th, PaminDurham has let loose over at the House Blend, reflecting a lot of my week-long frustrations about the Alito confirmation hearings. Since she's said it better than I can, I'm going to quote from her post here, and link to her great work, which is a must read:
The legacy of a Supreme Court appointment can change profoundly the most basic rights and privileges of citizens, yet these lame-ass Dems didn't seem to take seriously that Alito is a man capable of casting votes to roll the clock back on fundamental rights and liberties. Even worse, there was a generous paper trail out there take him out with if skillfully handled -- and they didn't know what to do with that either.
. . .What I saw up there were Dem Senators in the end, just enjoying their face time on TV, pontificating, looking outraged for their constituents -- they were already pre-programmed by their staffs to ask the same lame questions over and over, and left room for Alito, a man with a clear paper trail, to obfuscate so easily.
The system is broken.
Indeed it is.
If you do nothing else today, you should read the entire post by Pam. It's worth every minute of your time.
