Random Alito Musings

If Supreme Court Justice nominee Sam Alito is a bigot for joining a Princeton alumni club opposed to quotas…. does that also make Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) an alcoholic murderer of women, Sen. Joseph Biden (D-DE) a serial plagiarist, and Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) a member of the KKK?

Oh wait…

  1. A couple of things I’ve picked up ’round the web re: Alito. First, A typical classy left-wing response to Mrs. Alito leaving the hearing room in tears.

    Mrs. Alito cries once, either as a tactical move, or because she realized that her husband may actually not get to be on the supreme court, and now she has your “great sympathy.” how partisan of you. no one even attacked her — if kennedy had called her a slut, that woud (sic) be something, but not even that happened. 🙂

    she was crying, assuming it was genuine, out of sheer terror, possible disappointment and frustration that these jerky liberals won’t let her extremist husband control people’s lives from the highest bench there is. why does that deserve “great sympathy” more than a myriad other
    people?

    Sorry, lady, crying is BS. Don’t go to the hearings if you’re going to cry, or don’t expect sympathy for it.

    I imagine worse is being tossed around at the DUMB and Kostardistan.

    And the typical press response, Spinning the Incident to Blame Republicans for making Mrs. Alito cry

    Even so, Biden still walked away from Wednesday’s hearing with better press than than his colleague, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who made Alito’s wife cry.

    Mrs. Alito cried because Lindsey Graham was kind enough to apologize for the behavior of the Democrats on the committee. He was *comforting* her. He only got bad press because the media chose to twist the story to make him the bad guy. That line, while technically accurate, is completely misleading.

  2. And “people” wonder why good citizens in increasing number are turning-down opportunities for public service; which then benefits the hacks and the self-serving malefacters. Here in New Jersey, you have to spend several thousand dollars in accountants and lawyers just to complete the financial disclosures required just to be on an unpaid local school board or library commission. And all those disclosures are publically-available along with substantial “private” background statements and personal documents.

    Public service should not require a “public” Inquisition, …or your very-own Special Prosecutor.

  3. Kennedy, Biden, Schumer et al may be senators, but they’re no gentlemen.

    Don’t expect any kind of apology from them or their spinmeisters, either.

  4. So your logic is this, if I’m correct: Kennedy, Biden and Byrd are schmucks (what, you have NOTHING to say about Feinstein?), so therefore we must confirm Alito. I suggest you look at his ruling in Ashcroft vs Chen; there you will find clear evidence that he will not respect committed relationships if they are not sanctioned by law, no matter how unjust such a law clearly is. Kiss your domestic partnerships and related benefits, inheritance rights, the ability to make medical decisions and adoption privileges goodbye under this guy.

  5. I’m not a big fan of Judge Alito, but, Bruce, you hit the nail on the head about the hypocrisy of the left. I’ll say this much for Ted Kennedy, however, he’s got balls. If I had left a young woman to drown while I ran off to consult with my political spin experts, I’d still be keeping my mouth shut when it comes to “judging” other people.

    So your logic is this:

    A guy who’s been confirmed by Congress before must be voted down because of sudden and blatant B.S. that liberal f***tard staffers “found” i.e. the CAP B.S. Guess you missed the part where Kennedy was discovered to be a bigger fool than everybody thought.

    Chen v. Ashcroft????
    You’re an idiot plain and simple. You think a judge should violate U.S. law because he feels like it?
    Give me a freakin’ break. That case has NOTHING to do with domestic partnerships, benefits etc. It has to do with political assylum from China.
    You’re a complete idiot if you actually believe your post and even less if you think (as liberals do) that we’re too f***ing stupid to know better and take your word for it.

    It’s not balls, it’s the complete lack of decency, morals, and a soul. Ted Kennedy is a complete sociopath.

  8. NRO Notes: “Sam Alito worked hard in New Jersey public schools, got into Princeton on his own merits, took his meals in the coed dining hall and had nothing to do with the all-male Princeton eating clubs. Ted Kennedy (is a) Boston elitist who got into (and stayed into) Harvard on, um, other people’s merits, and who just a few months ago reconfirmed his membership in the Owl Club, which according to the Washington Times has ‘long been reviled on campus as sexist and elitist, and in 1984, was booted from the university for violating federal anti-discrimination laws.’”

  9. Some PLEASE confirm the story I heard yesterday, that Kennedy has a children’s book and the main character is a dog named “Splash”.

    Comment by JonInAtlanta — January 13, 2006 @ 8:52 am - January 13, 2006

  10. It is true, Ted Kennedy is writing a book, and Ted Kennedy’s real-life dog is named ‘Splash.’

    Actually, He just calls his dog “Splash” for short. The dog’s full AKC-registered name is “Come on, baby, don’t worry. I’m okay to drive. Now do it to me while I’m driving. Yeah, just like that, but less teeth…{SCREEEEEEEECH} OH MY GOD!!!! {CRASH!!}…Splash”

  11. You guys are funny on the TeddieK jokes. He is so easy a target someone needs to give him a T-Shirt with a huge bull’s eye on the back. Oh, no wait, that’s not a good idea given he’s a Kennedy.

    But, with respect, you miss 2 important points here in your rush to slam TeddieK. Schumer, Biden, Kennedy et al are in the MINORITY and, soon, Justice Alito will be in the MAJORITY. Nothing can erase the humiliation decent people should feel in observing Kennedy’s conduct in the last few days, but those two points -kept centered- make it a lot easier to forget all the nonsense.

    I’m waiting for the suvery results from CNN & others to the question: “Joe Public, should Alito be confirmed?” I’ll bet it’s not in favor or else very close and the No Opinion segment is near 30% of those polled. Americans –like the majority of Senators– knew what to think within days of the Alito announcement by W.

    But the important follow up question is “Can you name anyone serving on the Court?” The majority of American VOTERS can’t even do that.

    DiFi, unlike the three aforementioned individuals, has a brain and uses it, even though I often disagree with her conclusions. Besides, in comparison with my other soon-to-be state Senator, aka the Queen of the Moonbats, she’s conservative.

    Meanwhile, for Ashcroft v. Chen, that case is a howling irony for leftists to be pushing; it was a man who wanted to bring his pregnant girlfriend to the United States so she would NOT have to have an abortion. The moonbats are arguing that the fact that the woman was pregnant was a sign of a “committed relationship” and that the man should have been able to appeal to protect the unborn child.

    Problem is, those selfsame moonbats are the ones who have forced into place laws that specifically deny pregnancy as a sign of a committed or legal relationship between two people and ban men from being able to appeal to protect their unborn child.

    That’s what you get for allying with abortionists, Andy. One of these days you’ll figure out that their “right” to commit infanticide has nothing to do with your rights as a gay person. But that’s not going to happen until you are confronted with the fact that the man-haters who run gay organizations and their lackeys like Joe Solmonese will support people who support even the FMA and MPA because they’re pro-abortion.

    Didn’t he get booted for cheating?

    You guys are funny on the TeddieK jokes.

    And here’s another:

    “Sen. Ted Kennedy is writing a children’s book with his dog, from the dog’s point of view. Sen. Ted Kennedy has a dog named Splash. Is that the best name for Ted Kennedy’s dog? Isn’t that like that Jack Abramoff guy naming his dog Bribe?” –Jay Leno

    Here are some of my fav Kennedy jokes though.

    What was JFK Jr drinking just before the crash?
    Ocean Spray.

    What was the temperature off of Martha’s Vineyard?
    Three below.

    What if Teddy Kennedy was aboard?

    1. They could have used him as a flotation device.
    2. Teddy would have swam to shore.
    3. Everyone else would have still drowned.

    Why aren’t there more JFK Jr jokes out there?
    They just haven’t surfaced yet.

    What do Kennedys’ fear most?
    Old age. Dying of natural causes.
    What are some tips when being around the Kennedys?

    1. Don’t fly with Joe or JFK Jr.
    2. Don’t get in a boat with Jack.
    3. Don’t ride in a convertable with Jack.
    4. Don’t ride with Ted unless a window is down.
    5. Stay out of Bobby’s way in the kitchen.
    6. Don’t go skiing with Michael.
    7. Don’t let Michael babysit your kids.
    8. Don’t go out on a date with William Kennedy Smith.

    Why didn’t JFK Jr enter heaven?
    He failed the entrance exam. Twice.

    Q. Why didn’t JFK Jr. take a shower before he left for the Vineyard?
    A. He said he’d wash up on shore!

  14. DiFi, unlike the other so-called “senators” on the Judiciary Committee, actually had the decency and grace to stay for the witnesses called before the committee who testified in favor of Alito. These witnesses included two liberal clerks who voted for Kerry who swore on oath that Alito was not a racist or bigot.

    She may be a lib, but at least she had the good sense to stay and ask thoughtful questions. She gets an “A” for effort in my book.
