How does DU feel about this?

Just a bit anticlimatic.

Kinda like St. Louis celebrating for winning the NL Central.
It has been a foregone conclusion for more than a month.

Today I am ashamed to be a Democrat. My two Senators did not betray the American people but 23 others did. They cannot pass the buck by allowing Roberts to do their evil for them. They voted to day to support permanent detention of American citizens without trial and without rights (even without the right to an attorney), and to support the torture of children, to support the kidnapping of children, the selling of children into bondage and the trial of children by military tribunals. They voted that it was OK for the thousands of blacks to be disenfranchised in Florida (nothing wrong with the people who did it) They voted that a coup against the American people to fix an election and place a fascist tyrant in office was fine and there was nothing wrong with it They voted to support the slavery of women and the cutting of women's paychecks to make them an inferior sex. They voted to overturn the Voting Rights Act of 1965. They voted that the Endangered Species Act is unconstitutional. They voted that it is OK to wipe out all life on Earth as long as corporations want to wipe out all life on Earth. They voted that children should be dragged away in handcuffs for non-jail-able offenses. They voted that it is OK for justices to rule in favor of their own family. They voted that it is OK for the Courts to tell Congress they cannot stop an illegal war. They voted that the President is superior to Congress. They voted that advocating the killing of doctors is just fine. They voted that men and not women should control a woman's body. They voted for a lot of other bad stuff, too. When the revolution comes, I hope that all these traitors go to prison for life. I hope there will be women and blacks there to tell them what they can and cannot do with their bodies, so they will get just a taste of what they have done to the American people. Never will I give one dime or one minute of my time to support any future election for any of these individuals. I will also never vote for any of these individuals ever in the future. I am at least proud that my Senators have not acted worse than the Germans who supported Hitler. People of a couple of other states can be proud, too. I would like to say to the constituents of the Democrats who betrayed us, what more could you have done? What could you have said to get your leaders to realize the importance of this vote. Did anyone from your state give them the message that this was a career-breaking vote?

Gee talk about a lack of pomp and circumstance. You'd think with a new appointment and chief justice they would put up a bit of a show. Damn, I missed it. Patty

*ETA* Dusty_C it looks like Oregon Sen. Senator Wyden voted yea - He's been in it long enough that it would be hard to twist his arm to do anything. Although I disagree with him on most grounds politically [and of course philosophically] I have to say he isn't someone that can be pushed into something he doens't believe in. He is extremely predictable and consistant. Wonder why he voted yes.

Wow, noted liberal pantywaist Carl Levin is on the list as a Yea... Wonder what he expects in return.

My rule of thumb is unless the D's are screaming bloody murder he's probably not very conservative. So I am not holding my breath on Roberts.

If I'm not mistaken Scalia was confirmed by 98 votes.

There were plenty of Dims that were screaming bloody murder about Roberts. People of the American Way (a huge socialist group which Alec Baldwin is the spokesmouth for) as was NARAL and a couple of other far leftist type groups. There was plenty of hub-bub about Roberts.

I just hope he supports the second amendment. He's never been involved in a single second amendment case AFAIK.
