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!
