The Democrats need to stop Alito from a seat on the Supreme Court. Need a reason why ...
"What we've worked on for 30 years, to mobilize people of faith and value in this country, what we've done through these years is coming to culmination right now," Falwell said at a rally on the eve of Alito's confirmation hearing.
"Now we're looking at what we really started on 30 years ago, reconstruction of a court system gone awry," Falwell said.
The Christian Right and the Republicans fought darn near every appointment Clinton tried to make. They went after anyone that knew a gay person, read a book by a feminist, or said the world wasn't flat.
The Washington Post today in an editorial, "Democrats Ready to Go After Alito" suggest the "Senate Democrats are expected to attack Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. on multiple fronts at the confirmation hearing that opens at noon today, but their strongest ammunition is likely to come from the nominee's own hand."
I will beleive it when I see it. Too many Democrats are sitting back hoping the Republicans will sink themselves. The attitude that people will complain or see Democrats as obstructionist if they hold up Alito's confirmation is bunk.
The whole point here is to stop these people from getting to the Supreme Court. If George Bush wants to nominate someone that is not already in the hands of the Christian Right then lets talk. This person has the endorsement of the people that don't endorse anything unless it accepts the making of a theocracy.
Yesterday Howard Dean showed Democrats how to take on the media, how to address issues. Lets hope the democrats will stand for something. Be brave, the world is counting on you as is this Canadian.
