Democrats say they'd "hit it."

Or that is the message I get from this column by E. J. Dionne:
Democrats seem to be wary of mounting a filibuster. What they should insist upon, to use a euphemism Alito might appreciate, is an extended debate in which his evasions will be made perfectly clear to the public. If moderate senators want to vote for a justice highly likely to move the Supreme Court to the right, they can. But their electorates should know that's exactly what they're doing.
Define "what their electorates should know." Doesn't everybody know that Alito is a well-qualified judge who was nominated by the president? And they also know that he likes baseball.

Saying flat out that he will shift the Court in a hard right direction would be ridiculous. Just because he will severely weaken womens' rights to their own bodies is no reason to say so out loud. That would be crass.

Liberals may be driven by their or their own sense of right and wrong, but they make the grave error of saying so openly.

Conservatives are more mature. Even if they are driven by a genuine dislike of abortion, they realize it is morally correct to pretend that this goal does not exist. Stating such a goal openly would merely open the door to unfair partisan attacks that they are against women's rights simply because they want to take away a particular right now held by women.

And really, when you come right down to it the very worst reason to oppose a Supreme Court nominee is that he will make decisions you find morally reprehensible and harmful to real human beings. That is partisanship of the most shocking sort. It merely injects politics into what should be a totally non-political space, like the United States Senate.

UPDATE: Bowling balls have clearly developed an unhealthy obsession towards me. I will say no more about this.

god forbid that a Sumpreme Court nominee actually state his or her own real view point.

Wait, did Democrats say that they would "hit it" or was it Ntodd? Is he a democrat? I though he was an activist commenter with no respect for the four corners of this blog. Why must you be so sphinx-like with your wisdom, Dear Blogress Leader?

I am hereby warning all those who come to this blog to be unfair disruptors that the seventh post to this thread will be deleted, as it will in all likelihood be extremely partisan.

Those senators made him sit for a long time in a chair (with no robe) under those hot lights, and made his wife cry. Have they no decency?

All of you should be nice to Ann or you should just shut up and go away. Ann is very mature and non-partisan as a result of years of monastic self reflection.

She has, like, been totally aware of her Buddha nature since she read the cliff notes for Siddartha during her undergrad days (Brad Thompson was sooooooooooo hot, eeeeeeeeek!). Unlike all you filthy partisans, she understands that partisanship is another form of attachment. She is like totally detached from politics and culture. That is why she is so well situated to express an opinion on it.

I think playing "hide the salami" is sexist, but I don't know why.

The seventh comment was indeed extremely partisan, and sexist. Seventh comments are indeed extremely partisan!

To all seventh commenters, I DO NOT APOLOGIZE TO THE LIKES OF YOU! YOU APOLOGIZE TO ME! To ME! Puny insolent humans!

From now on every seventh comment will beb regularly deleted.

Does that mean only comment number 7, or does it mean also 14, 21, 28, etc?

Sorry. Partisan question.

Only comment number 7. That was perfectly clear. You need to work on your reading comprehendion and begin a process of sincere self-reflection.
