EDIT: Schumer's pissed already. I'm thrilled. This has pissed off all the right people. I can't wait to see the Democrats try to oppose the guy who a hell of a lot of them voted for and praised. This is the nominee and the fight that we've been waiting for.
EDIT 2: Haha, I love Chuck Schumer. He's the gift that keeps on giving. Nice of him to invoke the name of Rosa Parks while slamming Judge Alito. Maybe he could've stood on her coffin and given his speech from there. Demagogue.
This nominee will divide America? That's crap. Even if it was true, since when is it the role of a judicial nomination to unite America? Oh, yeah. I remember the turmoil in America in the 90's. We were at each others' throats, tearing each other apart. Then it happened. Bill Clinton nominated Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The heavens opened, the trumpets blared, and sunshine poured down on the land. America was united, and there was peace in the land.
EVENING EDIT: Confirm Them has a nice example of early slimery committed by a Democrat against Judge Alito. This document is marked "Not for Attribution," which is a nice way to say "the author is a coward and wants to smear anonymously." I'm not a big fan of anonymous attacks against people, and I certainly think that this one is disgusting. Unfortunately, there is probably more to come...
