Cue up 'Twillight Zone' by Golden Earring, perfect song for this post.
This week we saw the Senatorial version of Hedley Lamarr with sidekick Taggart inaction. From Ted Kennedy's inarticulate rants based on inebriated thoughts against Alito that finally got on Spectre's nerves to an almost enmasse boycott of these important hearings [at least that is how the Democrats have always portrayed this Senatorial consent for Supreme Court nominations] when Alito's fellow judges showed up to defend him in front of the committee. Even the ABA gives Alito high marks, but can we discern any of this from those august Democrats who were grilling Alito like this was the Inquisition? No. We have truly seen the naked truth this week, Democrats like Kennedy and Schumer are political apparatchiks who's sole compass in this world is not right or wrong but politics and they care not one whit about whom they destroy in their chimerical quest for political power.
