Jets and Sharks

Why even waste the time to have hearings for Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito? He is going to be confirmed. The Republicans have the votes and there is no way six Corrupticans will break with the President. There is also no chance every Democrat will vote against him. So why waste all the television time blathering about Griswold or Roe or Doe or any other case? It just take air time away from really important programming like ABC's Wife Swap.

He has an "open mind" about Roe and executive power and everything else. Well what a big concession having an open mind. An "open mind" can also be you are open to overturning settled precedent. The bottom line is that as long as the Republicans have a majority in the Senate you'll get Alito and Janice Rodgers Brown judges confirmed. It's simply a numbers game or a numbers gang. Like Jets versus Sharks or Crips versus Bloods. It's not an honest process so why expect an honest confirmation hearing? It has been reported that Sen. Lindsay Graham coached Alito in moot court sessions at the White House before he did his day work on the Judiciary Committee "reviewing" the nominee. Is there any wonder how he'll vote? Think his mind is made up already? And what does the MSM do? They ask Sen. Kennedy, "Sounds like you've made up your mind already. Is that fair?" It's simply a kabuki dance and a waste of time. So don't ask me to watch it. I'm busy watching something of value. Nanny 911.

When you watch the tube - can you be sure the tube isn't watching you?

Completely insane. First i can't believe that f-ing meathead is a doctor and got through medical school. The cow of a wife - what is she so f-ing busy with? She doesn't work an office job. And worst of all they share the state with me. They live in Naperville or something around there.
