All Alito, All the Time

First, the conversation on Give 'Em Hell, Harry, such as it is, redefines pointless. It's quite the sorry lot of the ill-informed spewing talking points. A few gems:

"For the third time, he has declined to make history by nominating the first Hispanic to the Court."

Yeah, I think we know what Harry Reid thinks about Hispanics. Just go ask Miguel Estrada.

"I don’t talk to Neocon Freepers."

What is this guy, in kindergarten? And incidentally, the guy keeps talking to me anyway, so neener neener on him.

"This is exactly why this blog need comment moderation now. We have comment Moderation on all of the blogs at and we have ZERO GOP trolls posting comments because of it."

Well congratulations on your successful efforts at completely insulating yourself from opposing viewpoints. You must be very proud.

"The Supreme Court asserts 'Equal Justice Under the Law.'"

Well now this explains a lot. Apparently liberals have a Constitution with completely different words from that which everyone else in the world can read. I guess that's why I've never spotted that clause about penumbras and emanations. I'm sure a lot of arguments could be avoided if the Lefties would just let conservatives read their super-secret special copies of the Constitution.

"Confirmation should be about what is really best for the entire Country and not a group of radicals."

When the "group of radicals" elected Bush by a popular and electoral majority, then that pretty much ends that argument right there, doesn't it? Oh, and remind me what percentage of the vote Clinton got before nominating two left-wing extremists?

"Having non moderated instant comments enables the rightwing noise machine and makes sane logical political conversation impossible."

Always with the censorship. Sheesh, move to China or something, dude.

Ace has some commentary, and a nice family photo.
