Sour Grapes Turned To Whine

This pathetic piece laments the author's disappointment that he couldn't get his slam in on the SCOTUS nominee.
Meanwhile, Hugh Hewitt continues to be a good source for commentary and links on the hearing.

Update: Check out this letter about my first comment here:

Re "The Alito testimony you won't hear," Opinion, Jan. 11 Hell hath no fury like a whiney fringe partisan scorned. While Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) often represents voices on the leftmost fringe of partisan clap-trappery, he was wise to scratch Stephen R. Dujack from the list [of witnesses to testify at the Alito hearings]. The ridiculous nature of Dujack's absurd testimony that wasn't to be would have made the more reasonable partisan opposition to Alito look foolish by association.Thus, by willingly stepping in and attempting to resuscitate Dujack's ego, The Times has compromised its own credibility and judgment.To stop the slide, I offer you the following suggestion: Next time the editors are tempted to offer The Times' distinguished forum to such pedestrian smear attempts, perhaps you should just offer the benevolent writer a bullhorn, and everyone on the editorial board who sympathizes can follow him to the street corner.

I couldn't have said it better, Kirk!

From what I've seen of the hearings, it's all just been more evidence that Republican candidates win elections these days not necessarily on their own appeal or the merits of their ideology, but because their political opponents are utterly repellent.

You are on to something there. Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and the rest of these fools are just repulsive. I saw where the nominee's wife left the room in tears after hearing the suggestions that her husband is some kind of bigoted beast. Just a hideous disrepectful embarrasing charade with these fools playing to their base. Have another cocktail, Teddy Boy.
