Senators Grill Alito On School Note


(Washington, DC) Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito carefully navigates his way through Senate confirmation hearings, as Democratic senators brought forth documents they believe may derail his candidacy.

"Americans have no better answers than they did at the outset of the hearings," said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. "I am therefore introducing this document, which we will label PS-10. This is a 1959 note from Alito to a Sandy Habercamp in Miss Harper's class."

Kennedy waved the note for dramatic effect.

"I shall quote from it: 'Dear Sandy - do you like me? Miss Harper is a witch!'" said Kennedy. "These I believe to be code words for 'I am against Roe v. Wade.'"

Other senators quickly jumped into the fray.

" His responses to the PS-10 document are vague, inconsistent, and at times, contradictory testimony to what his record shows," added Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the committee's ranking Democrat. "Clearly this note shows that Alito considers women to be objects for entertainment, and his derisive comments toward Miss Harper suggest a latent misogyny."

Sen. Russ Feingold pressed Alito on whether he actually wrote that Miss Harper was a witch.

"So you don't recall whether you wrote that or not?" Feingold asked. "How convenient; let me refresh your memory, sir. The note also says that Jimmy Powell eats boogers and wipes them on the pages of the science book. I suppose you have no recollection of that, either?"

Continuing before Alito could respond, Feingold argued that the note sheds ominous light on Alito's views.

"This subversive spying on a classmate clearly indicates that Mr. Alito agrees with President Bush decision to order wiretaps without warrants as part of the so-called war on terror," said Feingold. "As such, I urge all liberty-minded senators to cast a "No" vote on Mr. Alito's nomination."

Comments:
Alito will be confirmed because there is no reason not to. These senators are wasting our time and money with this farce.
 
And the fucker dunked my pigtails in the inkwell.
 
DID NOT!!
 
DID TOO!
 
Personally I am affronted that the American Kennel Club has not demanded action on Kennedy's comment yesterday that demeaned dogs everywhere...

Yes...I refer to the word Scurrilous in reference to dogs...

:-)
 
Anon is correct. I mean, why even have hearings? The president should just get to put exactly who he wants wherever he wants and for whatever reason. Screw checks and balances and all that other hooey, let George run free! Support Rafael Palmeiro's nomination for Drug Czar!
 
As a lifelong Orioles fan, substance abuser, and rogue editor of this publication, I am deeply offended by Jed's previous comment concerning Rafael Palmeiro. All evidence indicates that Palmeiro took an illegal substance unwittingly--perhaps in vitamin form--and that he did not lie to Congress when he testified in March 2005. However, none of this alters the fact that Matt Leinert is still a douche bag.
 
So, the evidence presented is every bit as juvenile as the Dems seem to be.

No surprises here...
