Senate Judiciary To Confirm Alito
The Senate Judiciary Committee begins hearings next week. And in front of this nomination, groups on either side of this nomination will run ads in favor or against Alito. And what affect will these ads have? Nothing. These ads are folly at best since it is Congressman who decide if any USSC nominee gets confirmed. And since Senators are already aligned with groups on either side, what is the point of having the ABA say Alito is great while People For The American Way say Alito is a total git?
Help me understand why ads for political appointments need to be aired. I just don’t get it. Its bad politics and a waste of time, talent and money.
Bush (and those of us who elected him) have the right to nominate whomever for the Court. For the crybaby liberals, a la Pelosi, Schumer et al, too bad -- you lost the last two elections. Get over it. When you win again -- if you ever do -- then it's your turn to nominate another Ginsburg or her clone.
I have to go barf now...
But the purpose of the ads is to get folks to call/write/harass their senator into voting for/against Judge Alito.
