Dog Bites Man
Judge Altio gets through the Judiciary Committee on a straight party line vote. As K-Lo observes at The Corner , its unclear that the hearings accomplished anything other than to raise money for PFAW. Herb Kohl votes against Alito, stating "I fear that a Justice Alito will narrow our rights, limit our freedoms and overturn decades of progress ...." I fear that if one guy, unelected and appointed for life, can do that, we've let the Supreme Court arrogate far too much power to itself.
