These hearings are basically to determine whether or not Judge Alito is suitable to sit on the Supreme Court. He is supposed to be addressing issues like judicial philosophy, etc.

Neil Cavuto said on his show yesterday that the Senator's spoke 6 times more than Alito did.

That means that for every 6 minutes that the Senator's bloviated, Alito spoke about 1 minute.
That means for every hour, he had about 10 minutes to speak
That means for the entire 9 hours yesterday, he had about 90 minutes to speak


How are we going to learn anything about him if all we hear is a bunch of Senators grandstanding?

What else would it be? That is the way it is with every hearing. Not just SCOUS hearings.

Something I just found out about the Alito hearings yesterday

Democrats suck.


Oh wait. I already knew that. Sorry.

Kind of makes you wonder why they're called "hearings".
Confirmation Speakings?

A bit like reporters. They make agenda fulfilling statements in order to ask a 5 second question.

Who questions the Senators? The voting booth?

It seems these Senators have nothing and they (try) to drag this out, knowing they have nothing and are going to 'lose'.


Go Alito!
