Somebody oughta poison Alito

The US Senate has confirmed Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court.

Now I don’t know if Justice Alito actually likes creme brulee, but if he does, we need somebody to put rat poisoning in it.

Of course… I’m only joking.

    For some reason no one here posts the really significant difference between Justice Alito and Justice Ginsberg:

    Bill Clinton met with Republican Senators and worked out a candidate with them that everyone could support.

    Bush spit at the Senate and dared the Democrats to try to derail it.

    Kind of a different approach, wouldn’t you say?

    As I recall, Bush has made multiple attempts at conciliation with the dems. Every time he has been stabbed in the back. Remember movies with the Kennedy’s? If the dems were sincere about sitting down and talking, then I would support the effort.

    As it is, Reid is beholden to moveon and soros, and can’t take a step in that direction. Dean is draining the bank and the party needs the donations that these left wing groups promise, if they are obeyed.

    Still haven’t heard comments on the fact that Reid wrote a letter in support of a tribe, on direction of Abramoff, and received a $5,000 donation two weeks later. It will be interesting to see if he survives.

    “Whether you like to admit it, the man has an agenda, has goals and is getting what he wants to done.”

    Ummmm…yeah…right. Even with a GOP controlled Congress, Bush has gotten very little of his agenda accomplished (except, of course, finding all of those WMD in Iraq). Instead, he has committed one blunder after another, only to overreact the next time around.

    “Talk to me after the State of the Union Address about approval ratings.”

    His approval ratings will experience a transient rise of fewer than 5 percent and then drop back down again. I showed you his approval rating over all 5 years from numerous major polls. You are an idiot if you think the SOTU address is going to change the trend.

    “Americans love a fight and teh ass kicking you donls just took makes the Republicans look that much stronger “

    Umm…let’s see you think the Democrats got their asses kicked because a Republican President was able to get a conservative Justice appointed to the SCOTUS after confirmation by a Republican controlled Senate?????

    Man, you wingnuts sure have low expectations for yourselves!!!!!

    The chess board?

    Looks good…after all that ultra-liberal rag the Wall Street Journal (PDF) tells us the following:

    when you actually DESCRIBE what the Bush administration is doing, the American public roundly opposes it (it takes a blogger to find out what NBC and Hardball can’t):
    Do you think that the Bush administration should conduct wiretaps of American citizens who are suspected of having ties to terrorists without a court order, or do you think that the Bush administration should be required to get a court order before conducting these wiretaps?

    Should be able to wiretap without court order ……………………. 41
    Should be required to get a court order before wiretapping …. 53
    Depends (VOL)…………………………………………………. 4
    Not sure……………………………………………………… 2
    Let’s just clarify this point. Only 41% of the American people think it’s okay for Bush to spy without a search warrant on American citizens who are SUSPECTED OF HAVING TIES TO AL QAEDA. That’s an unbelievable low figure considering how the question is framed. Too bad Russert and Chris Matthews missed the most obvious question in the entire poll.
    How concerned are you that the Bush administration’s use of these kinds of wiretaps could be misused to violate people’s privacy–extremely concerned, quite concerned, not really concerned, or not concerned at all?
    Extremely concerned ……………………… 31
    Quite concerned …………………………….. 25
    Not really concerned………………………. 22
    Not concerned at all……………………….. 21
    Not sure………………………………………… 1

    Bush approval: 39%

    Country on the wrong track: 57%

    Prefer Democrat-controlled Congress: 47%
    Prefer Republican-controlled Congress: 38%

    Top priority over the next year: Bring most of the troops home from Iraq

    Top view of the Bush administration: “misguided and harmful agenda” 39%

    What role would you like to see Dems play in Congress:
    – work in a bipartisan way to pass Bush’s legislative priorities: 34%
    – provide a balance so Bush and Republicans don’t go too far: 58%

    Of course, the joy of making you look bad aside, its not really about your obsession with Kennedy. Its about the fact that Alito is a partisan hack who was appointed for purely selfish reasons on Bush’s part… And its also about the fact that as much as you hate it, alot of our representatives listened to us on this issue.

    The fact that Reid wrote a letter in support of a tribe, on direction of Abramoff, and received a $5,000 donation two weeks later.

    You should correctly separate what is fact in your assertion from what is not. Harry Reid wrote a letter to Gale Norton: fact. Saids letter was written at Abramoff’s direction: NOT fact. Harry Reid received campaign contribution later from a tribe for whom Jack Abramoff was an agent: fact. Said contribution was made at Abramoff’s direction: NOT fact.

    Besides, Janet, you seem to be missing the whole POINT about how the Abramoff bribes worked. For every person who was bribed, it worked the same way: You give your guy some money, and THEN he does your dirty work. Every time. Even the Congressmen stupid anough to let Abramoff bribe them STILL weren’t so stupid that they’d do it on spec.

    General comment re: the Alito nomination.

    Kind of a tough thing to do, to defeat a sitting president’s nominee. The Republicans learned that in the 90s. Why should we get upset that we got “only” 25 Democrats to support a filibuster. That’s a defeat only in teh narrow technical sense.

    From http://digbysblog.blogspot.com: So we only got 25 Senators to vote for a filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee who, if defeated, would be replaced by someone just as bad by a president in the pocket of his radical right wing. Well.

    Do you know how many votes the Republicans managed to get when uber wingnut Antonin Scalia was confirmed? 98. And Democrats had a majority. We didn’t have to even think about a filibuster. We couldn’t defeat Clarence Thomas and we had a majority, a huge push from women’s groups and a very dramatic set of hearings that went into the wee hours of the morning.

    In 2002, Dianne Feinstein, Bayh, Biden, Clinton, Dodd, Kerry and Reid all epressed grave doubts about the authorization of the use of force, but they voted for it anyway.

    THIS time, they all voted the other way. Left instead of right. tide is shifting. It’s safe to be against Chimpie. We’re winning.

    Ummmm…perhaps he thinks he was stabbed in the back. Compare to Clinton, who engaged in truly bipartisan efforts AND got stabbed in the back.

    This highlights two of the differences between Bush and Clinton. Bush is mentally incapable of negociating a bipartisan solution to anything (he has a hard enough time getting all the Republicans on board—hence he has been utterly ineffective unless he acts unilaterally using executive power). And, Bush is petty and seeks petty revenge; Clinton rose above the pettiness.

    I am sure Shrub makes his mother proud…everyone else (whether they admit it or not) is at least a little embarassed by Bush.

    I find this highly unlikely, but if true, that has to give Dems the willies. A Bush appointee replacing Stevens (or Breyer, Ginsburg or Souter) would actually tip the Supreme Court to the conservative side. Unlike this appointment which just leans the Court more to the right.

    History, of course, evidences an unyielding march to the left. While we experience periodic hiccups in this march, such as the present era when we witness fundamentalist regressive tendencies like the Taliban in Afghanistan and evangelical Republicans in the American red states, hiccups always pass. Once Bush and his pie-eyed punies finish bringing this nation to its knees, we will once again, invariably and indubitably, see an expansion of civil liberties, a cultural flowering, and sustainable economic growth. These periods when pouty children raised on fairy tales govern are necessarily followed by eras in which the adults take over again. I have always found the conservatives’ notion that they are the productive, responsible members of society most amusing, almost charming in its naivete. In fact, if conservative ideology had triumphed throughout the ages, humankind would still be living in caves. Liberalism is the product of the freethinkers, the open-minded, and the initiators; liberalism is the force that pushed nomadic clans of bug-eaters into cohesive communities of people who, working together, are responsible for literature, music, science, ethics, and all of those pursuits which make life worth living. Conservatives are responsible for selfishness, anti-intellectualism, and war. Conservative thinking reflects self-congratulation that is best addressed through prescription pharmaceuticals. Oh, and by the way, liberal girls fuck way better than conservative ones. Keep up your pompous notion that you guys are in charge. History just ain’t likely to prove you right.

    Janet@13: We’re actually having a discussion, and I thank you for that.

    That being said, I think you’re deeply mistaken. The post I was writing as you finished yours comes to this point to some degree, but I think its worth going over again.

    The harriet Meyers (sp? too lazy to look it up) nomination is the key example here. By almost universal accord, she wasnt’ qualified. Bush nominated her anyways because she was a loyal crony who would support what he wanted. Thats where he went wrong, and where we had to seriously start questioning the traditional way to do it…
    The right does have valid arguments… or it can. The problem is that their arguments have been hijacked (imnsho) and are being used to promote unconservative policy. Its sad, alot of people who should hate whats going on go along with it because they’re already committed… and we’re at war… and they’re scared… or whatever. People, naturally, don’t like to change their loyalties. And the people behind Bush are smart enough to exploit the hell out of it.

    I have nothing against true conservatives beyond their loyalty to people who will gladly use them as tools and dupes.

    Oh Bullshit Windie.

    There was a rallying cry because the liberal faction was screaming their heads off and it’s an election year.

    Donk candidates did not want to cross the party line and say, “Fat bloated teddy (Fredo Corleone?), sit down and shut up.”

    Ultimately, the special interest groups would not have paid money for re-election on Donks who did not go along like sheep.

    windie spews:

    on a more positive note, I’ve been reading all over about the alito vote… and its actually pretty cool. Yeah its sad that the scumbag/crony crowd got another one in, but the people had a voice. We, the grassroots, got our legislators to respond to do us and go against a certain amount of tradition… To take a risk to do what was right. Thats a good feeling.

    Of course, that brings us around to the basic flaw of the confirmation process. Even with someone like Scalia, there was an assumption of good faith from the congress to the President. A dem. majority overwhelmingly voted for Scalia because even tho’ they thought he was a partian a-hole, they believed that he’d been submitted as a good Judge. Bush has shown that that doesn’t matter the least to him (just look at the previous attempt)… So those senators with balls were good to stand up to him.

  95. 115

    Janet S spews:

    Windie- everything has bias. I don’t want a supreme court justice who has is exempt from this. This is the same argument about money in politics. It just feels wrong, so it must be wrong. Sorry, but it is how the world works.

    I know you will think this sounds naive, and it is contrary to the bush-derangement-syndrome, but the right actually has valid arguments other than meglomania. I can defend bush’s ideas without being a fascist, and I can think that bush is a reasonable human being who actually has as his greatest desire the best for the country.

    That’s why arguments are so fruitless with those on the left. You view yourselves as correct, and everyone else as fanatic. Your beliefs are mainstream, regardless of whether anyone else in the country agrees with you. Hard to argue with heartfelt emotion.
