"So now Samuel Alito's Supreme Court confirmation hearings can't start until January 9.
January 9! That's two months!
Congress, we're told, is simply too busy.
So much to do.
So this guy has to sit and stew for two months because these knuckleheads can't walk and chew gum at the same time?!
Two words for you guys.
The rest of us do.
For what kind of idiots do you take us?
We somehow juggle our responsibilities in life.
You're well compensated to juggle our interests in Washington.
Act like the leaders we elected you to be.
Not the lazy bureaucrats you apparently prefer to be.
Get off your indifference.
But first, get off your ass!"
Now I have to admit that is pretty much what I thought. What could possibly take them so long to confirm Alito? Supposedly it's because they have to go through his court cases and rulings. All of them? Why? Do they think they are going to find some skeleton in his closet or some piece of information to use against him? Well, of course, that is the reason...this is the "Gang of 14" we're talking about after all!
