Sparks Fly at Alito Hearing
We were waiting for some fireworks at Judge Sam Alito's confirmation hearing. Tuesday was definitely dullsville. We wanted sparks to fly. We wanted to hear
Bell's going to ring
Hear the alarms
Better tell the fire chief
To quit playing cards
Then there was Mrs. Alito's tears, seized on by the MSM as a defining moment of the day.
Please. While I'm not convinced as is Jane they were crocodile tears, engineered by Sen. Lindsay Graham, I do think they were pretty lame. Read James Wolcott who calls Ms. Alito the "new first lady of the American Theater." Then again, consider this, from Time Magazine Wednesday night:
The always-alert Creative Response Concepts, a conservative public relations firm, sent this bulletin: "Former Alito clerk Gary Rubman witnessed Mrs. Alito leaving her husband's confirmation in tears and is available for interviews, along with other former Alito clerks who know her personally and are very upset about this development."
I also think Lindsay Graham has some explaining to do about his dual role as murder board coach and hearing officer.
As to the Democratic Senators, their questioning was much improved today. Here's the transcript.
