We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Additional Commentary On Alito
The Senate Democrats choked and many voted to end debate on Sam Alito for SCOTUS. Many knew this was mostly likely going to fail but a nod to the Senators from Mass for trying to put something together. Being from Kentucky, nothing short of an act of God would have prevented Mitch and Jim from voting for cloture.
The 3-1 vote was a little surprising. I had hoped it would be a little closer than that but alas, twas not to be.
Now comes the vote to confirm. I'd say its a safe bet although some Republicans have said they would vote against it. The problem is that some Dems have said they would vote in favor of Alito. What must be done then is this: Democrats must take control of Congress. It's absolute necessity of we want humans to survive in America.
The Republicans are wearing everyone out by not only doing all the traditional Republican stuff of giving lots of money to all the rich but also by being perhaps the most crooked bunch of Republicans maybe since U.S. Grant.
