WHAT THE DEMS NEED TO DO DURING THE ALITO HEARINGS
IT'S A DIRTY JOB, BUT SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT...
I'll make this quick.
Machine Gun Sammy Alito should not get confirmed by the U. S. Senate to the Supreme Court. Roe v. Wade is on the chopping block, and if he's confirmed, Alito will take an axe to that decision and quickly move on to any remaining civil liberties and civil rights gains in the last two hundred years.
So, the Democrats need to go into "Filibuster Mode" and Bill Frist's "Nuclear Option" be damned. If he's got the guts to use it, that is. Reid can well shut down the Senate and nothing, and I mean, NOTHING, gets done. And just like when slimy Newt Gingrich shut down the Government back in 1996 because he was pissed at Bill Clinton, Frist's actions will have the country blaming his ineptness in leadership ability, in spades and double.
Of course, we all should have suspected Frist's competency when he diagnosed a comatose woman from watching video tapes.
So, to interpret why I put the picture of a scene from "The Shield", let's recap:
Michael Chiklis' character, Vic Mackey, is holding a gun on a suspect. Mackey represents the Democratic Party which have grown a pair.
And the suspect (weeping and crying) is the Republican Party, being made to bow down in defeat and not confirm Machine Gun Sammy to the Nation's Highest Court.
One can dream...
