Alito Lito Bobito
So I've been listening to the Alito Supreme Court confirmation hearings on the radio today, and boy, is it boring. Oh, sorry, I meant, boy, is it an exciting demonstration of the confirmation process. I must have accidentally typed that with my head when it hit the keyboard.
To be sure, there are lots of intriguing issues like the reach of executive power, abortion, individual rights, and stare decisis, but when something's a foregone conclusion, as Alito's confirmation is, as long as no word comes out about his involvement with Rick Santorum in an underground bestiality ring, the back and forth loses some of its... pizzazz. Not to mention the fact that the senators seemed to spend most of their time quizzing Alito on patently congressional issues or asking him whether he likes his mother in law. Oh yeah, and if he'll overturn Roe v. Wade or give the President blanket authority to do whatever the hell he wants, whenever he wants it. Not like the President's waiting for Alito's go-ahead.
