So many disgusts, so little time.
Feinstein Warns Against Alito Filibuster
A Democrat who plans to vote against Samuel Alito sided on Sunday with a Republican colleague on the Senate Judiciary Committee in cautioning against a filibuster of the Supreme Court nominee.It hurts knowing that once upon a time I lived in San Diego and voted for Feinstein, not once, but twice, for Senator.
"I do not see a likelihood of a filibuster," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. "This might be a man I disagree with, but it doesn't mean he shouldn't be on the court."
She said she will not vote to confirm the appeals court judge, based on his conservative record. But she acknowledged that nothing emerged during last week's hearings to justify any organized action by Democrats to stall the nomination.
Bill O'Reilly opens his piehole to try and tell people How Martin Luther King Would View Things Today...
Dr. King would be appalled by the secular culture, the attacks on Christmas, the demonizing of Christianity. By the way, where's the ACLU and other pinheads when Martin Luther King's picture is displayed on public property?
I think the best response is to throw O'Reilly's own words back at him: "Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Just shut up." If MLK was alive today is there any doubt that O'Reilly and the rest of the Faux News crew wouldn't demonize him the way they have peace activist Cindy Sheehan?
Swiftboating of Murtha (via Crooks and Liars)
The Washington Post covers the Murtha smears, but Murray Waas uncovers a few more facts about David Thibault, editor in chief of the Cybercast News Service that the WaPo does not.
It would have been nice to know that the swiftboating of Murtha is coming from someone with deep ties to the RNC. He's also linked to Bobby Eberle of GOPUSA, the former boss of Jeff Gannon.
How many times will the chickenhawk squawks of BushCo and their disciples be allowed to lie and discredit the record of real war veterans?
