Alito Confirmed

I apologize to my daughters for what may happen over the next thirty years. Samuel Alito has been confirmed by a 58-42 vote. Lincoln Chafee (R-RI) and Jim Jeffords (I-VT) voted no. Robert Byrd (D-WV), Kent Conrad (D-ND), Tim Johnson (D-SD), and Ben Nelson (D-NE) voted yes. Geez, I guess I should be glad all the Democrats at least showed up to cast a vote.

For the fifteen senators who voted to end the filibuster but voted no on Alito, I repeat what I said below. You’re cowards. For the four who voted yes on Alito, thanks. For NOTHING!

    Hey, I know. Let’s start a pool to see how long it takes for the state of Alabama to outlaw abortion! I say. . . 2 years, 4 months and 17 days.

    Hmmm…it’s a little late to introduce it during this legislative session, but I put nothing past some of the wingnuts in Montgomery. I’ll put money on it coming up next year.
