Alito is unacceptable
Democrats have absolutely no excuse for not doing everything they possibly can to see to it that this man never reaches the Supreme Court. There is no reason not to pull out all the stops on this one. Any senator who refuses to do so should be punished severely.
Bitch Ph.D. has a great post explaining the threat that Alito represents.
...Mike the Mad Biologist agrees that Democrats have no business helping Alito onto the Court:
Alito is the ultimate litmus for every Democrat: I don't want to hear excuses for someone like Ben Nelson of Nebraska. No one breaks on this one. If a Democrat doesn't stand against this wackjob, then we need to pull a 'Scooter' and throw said Democrat under the bus.
