Cloture has been achieved in the senate with 72 votes!!! Alito's vote is assured tomorrow at 11AM. Senators ASShat and ASSclown from mASSachusets flamed and ranted about how terrible it would be if we failed to appoint an extreme left wing candidate to the SCOTUS who would continue to use the court to do what the voters would never do. Tooo Frigging Bad, you crybabies!



I watched every minute of it, and can't believe how good a candidate he really is.

Gotta go over to DU now and watch the unraveling as they bitch about all the "moderate" democrats

DU has a forum set up just for Alito. They have been doing the math all day assured that a filibuster would happen. I just tried to get on to watch them implode but their site is experiencing unusually high traffic

HA! DU has established a habit of closing their forums to non-registered users at times of Extreme Liberal Failure. It happend on election night 2004, and again when Kerry conceded the next day.

That is happened today is a pretty good indicator of how good a SCJ Alito will be.

It's a vote to end debate on an issue before the issue is officially voted on. I beleive 60 was the needed number.

They could talk forever and keep Alito from getting appointed unless 60 people vote to close discussions. Cloture is when 60 or more agree to end it.

Wrong.
The days of real fillibusters ended during civil rights as Senator Robert Byrd wanted to fillibuster against the darkies getting rights without doing any real work.
Trust to the democrats to have the only KKK member in the Senate.



True, the filibusters are more civilized now. They take breaks and don't have to sleep in their chairs all night. The movie Mr Smith Goes To Washington (with Jimmy Stewart) had the classic, heroic filibuster.

"But let's say, for argument's sake, that there are not enough votes to sustain this fillibuster, WE STILL WON and here is why.

We came together, all of us, establishment dems, progressives, DUers, Kossacks, etc., etc. Things looked pretty bad just a week ago and we spent some time crying, bitching, moaning, threatening, then we got over it. We put our emotions to the side and got to work."

Oh, that's too funny. DENIAL.

I liked this one


As for our enemies; All of the GOP Fascists and those Quislings who voted Aye on cloture, we now know your names. We know your districts, and we will see each and every one of you defeated in turn.

The fight is before us.

It may be a dark and literally deadly struggle for some of us, but it must be fought and fought with the sort of tenacity that I saw in these last blessed days. Let the last week be remembered as the week we first stood as one, and not the last.

In the immortal words of Winston Churchill; never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

Comrades! Are you with me in the fight to take back America?

And they had a shit fit because Trent Lott claimed to know someone who was "anti-civil rights"?

Double standard assholes...

I suppose Byrd was born again in the mold of a Kennedy or some such bullshit though, right?

ETA: Bushitler? Kinda odd considering THEIR party subscribes to FAR more of Hitler's programs and beliefs than the republicans do.

Ever heard of Gun Control?

Socialism?

Blame the Rich (Jews were rich)?

Restrictions on Speech?

Trial by public Opinion?

Do I need to go on or am I preaching to the choir? God I hate these slimeball double-standard loving lying sonsofbitches!!!

She asked in a weak, almost scared voice, "Will they really take away a womans right to choose?"

I replied, "I don't know. Maybe...Probably...eventually."

Her voice was rising an octave. After 14 years of marraige I instantly know that means she is getting pissed off.

"Why didn't they (the Dems) fight? Why... do... we... give them FUCKING MONEY EVERY YEAR IF WE CAN'T COUNT ON THEM TO STAND UP TO THIS?!"

I paused for a moment and said sheepishly, " I don't know. But if they overturn Roe vs Wade the republicans will have hell to pay."

"Right now," she said, "I don't give A SHIT! WE ARE NOT SENDING THEM A FUCKING, SINGLE PENNY ANYMORE!"

Wow, I thought. The "F" word TWICE inside 10 seconds. She rarely uses that word. I knew that only a two word answer would slightly calm her down.

"Yes dear."

My friends at DU. Almost every one of you are more politic savvy than I. She is on the train home right now from Manhatten and I sure would like to give her a better answer....

Will they REALLY go against 70% of the population and overturn Roe v Wade?
