This is great. Kennedy is grilling Alito on Judicial "Integrity" and some stuffy old white guy senator was takling about how Alito doesn't represent diversity!!

(Diversity: Defined as: Anybody other than a white guy who gets a job, admission to law school, etc.)

I am watching it now. It ranges from good questions to the silly dumb shit that you pointed out.

what is really great is Ted talking about how Alito is "big government" and against the "the little guy", and doesn't support individual rights, but the rights of the group.

I hope he is voting against the AWB of 2006 then.

Where's the part about diversity in the constitution? What are the federal laws pertaining to diversity?

I was surprised by what a sensible statement Sen DeWine made.

Fatswein is talking about the rybar case in which Alito stated he thought it was unconstitutional for congress to regulate machine guns sales. God I hope he gets it.

Mary Jo Kopechne, in Bobby Kennedy's office. Wow- that's only the 2nd pic of her I've ever seen. Usually all you can find is her HS yearbook pic.


I don't hate anybody, but in place of that, there are an awful lot of people I do feel sorry for. And I >cough< really feel sorry for Teddy the K, if ya catch my drift......

"Fat, drunk and stupid's no way to go through life, son."

Why is Rybar such a big thing? I've read the basics on the case but...

And why do people vote in turds like Shumer and FineSwine?

If I were going before Kennedy in the Senate, every time he'd ask a question, I'd bring up a hypothetical story about a friend, who just happens to be name Mary Jo.

Any time I hear these Liberals talking about the Constitution and individual rights it makes me so mad. When they completely over look the 2nd. I would love to see him say, "Yes the Constitution does guarantee indiviuals rights espically the right to self defense and the right to bear Arms as used by our current and past military, any laws limiting that right are unconstitutional."

Alito is through talking now, He's not super well spoken but he sounds like a simple, honest guy and I like that. I'm worried some of the better lib speakers can do some damage.

Many times, very learned people are told, and even trained, to "dumb down" their language in order to speak to lesser-educated individuals. I hope it's the case here.

When a person with a well-developed vocabulary is forced to speak plainly, it can sound forced and even "uneducated".

They want you to read their "commentary" on the Alito conf hearings over the next few days/weeks/months. So does most everyone else in Washington.

Who that fat bastard is to discuss integrity is beyond me.

JIMBEAM, good job, you finished my train of thought fromt his morning, as I knew someone would!





Link Posted: 1/9/2006 5:37:30 PM EDT
For once, just once, I wish someone being lectured on integrity by Fatass himself would start looking around the room very demonstratively, begging a question from Kennedy about what he was doing.

Then the "interviewee" could say, "I was just checking to see if there was more than one person in the room who has killed someone else due to negligence."

That, my friends, would be worth getting rejected over.
