Judiciary LIVE LINK
MSNBC showed a tape of the end as she had to leave the room, but I caught her crying live, she was wiping tears, and could not stop and had to leave.
Sounds like Fat Teddy threw a fit while I was at work. Can you give me the FR condensed version, please?
LOL! Can we please order an Anvil?
This guy is too much... Please Lord... you know me... don't ever let me start digging on Schumer... not to mention the Abramoff funds.
Of course he doesn't. The cameras aren't on him while Alito is answering.
There you go Cornyn.
Schumer should thank God Dueling is illegal. I would call his punk A## out tonight if I could. By God there are SOME people so power corrupt they do not deserve their office. Schumer is showing why he is unfit for his office. This behavior may sell in NY, it is NOT going to sit well with the squishy middle.
Your time is up! LOL.
Do the Democrats actually think they're actually advancing their cause through these hearings?
It's so important to him to "get all these answers" that he bailed early yesterday, along with the other concerned Senators like Biden, Feinstein and Kennedy.
John Cornyn is going to kick some TEXAS (*&
I know, I know you are right, I am trying to remain calm. Specter actually stepped into shut him up. Arlen has an occasional usefulness.
Spector DIDN"T ACCEED TO KENNEDY'S REQUEST.
There is no subpoena. He called Rusher and Rusher said go over and read the stuff.
LOL - Cornyn brings up the name Dujak. Awesome. Fighting fire with fire.
"An open mind is nothing. The purpose of an open mind is the same as the purpose of an open mouth -- it is meant to close on something." - G.K. Chesterton
Have to give Senator Specter credit.
He shut down Kennedy this morning, and he just shut down Schumer.
I'd love to kick these guys where it hurts.
I tried to tell her that open minded is not synonymous with liberal. She disagreed. We continued to argue and eventually we stopped talking.
Sometimes Specter makes me proud. (But only sometimes.)
I missed the crying while Graham was up... I decided to put some Christmas decorations away. Guess I'll have to try to catch the replay on CSPAM.
Do these turds actually think people... NORMAL PEOPLE, are all worried about this???
In a job application from 21yrs ago, he included a reference to a club he was in that made racist statements in the early 70s.
CLEARLY, this shows that Alito is a hardcore racist and wants to enslave black people and women all over again.
Wait a minute... didn't some democrats belong to some 'club' at some point that might have appeared a bit racist. Ohhh like the KKK?
I have just spent the last 2 minutes screaming at my TV for Schumer to SHUT UP!! Thank God he finally listened to me!!!!!
Given that the RATS have had two months to dig up dirt, and prepare the onslaught, they have certainly demonstrated the total void and lack of ideas and substance they seem to be trapped in. Schumer and Kennedy are doing a wonderful job of demonstratig to the few that are watching how empty and hypocritical they are. I only wish the viewers could be counted in the tens of millions instead of a few hundred thousand.
HA! Cornyn now bringing up the idiot Dujack. THIS is what we need to show the Murkin people.
Way to go, Arlen! "Sen. Schumer, your time is up!!!!"
Don't you think that the word "compensation" is the kicker though...
Graham was hardly a "paid" moot court participant.
I know what you mean! I would get censured in a hurry!
Could explain why Alito was red in the face and obviously angry when dealing with schumie....
Please Lord - let AliVeritas start digging on Schumer. Please?
Chuck as a child in Kindergarten in 1953. Which one is he ?
Did Martha Alito leave the room in tears? What's going on. Someone please inform. Thanks.
LOL! The wit of Chesterton... you've got to love it!
Here's a question that Chuckie will dodge--
"Can a woman belong to your lodge?"
Female Masons he'd thwart,
But he'd help gals abort
His thinking is such a hodge-podge.
They've done themselves more harm than good. Even Dem callers to CSPAN during breaks are expressing disgust.
Oh no... will I have to go to confession... I had cream of turkey soup.
Oh come now... you asked for a HAMMER! lol
He is puzzled.
Cornyn: Dems desperate and over-reaching!
This is the problem Republicans simply must out grow. They HATE Fed Spending and LOVE the people who bring the Fed pork spending home in truck loads.
I've been working on my christmas decorations for over a week now.
I've got about 10,000 lights down so far (and all 12 deer), only 20,000 to go. Then there's the indoor stuff.......
Has he from the onset or was he trying to get the best soundbites for the evening news? The man is an embarrassment to my State and is far too beholden to special interest groups.
I wish someone would ask him just what he's insinuating in his questions. Perhaps Cornyn will do that in his subtle but masterful manner.
12:42: Sen. Kennedy moves for executive session to subpoena these documents* from CAP. Specter says this takes him by suprise but Kennedy says it shouldn't because Kennedy sent a letter about this topic. Specter says he didn't receive it and refuses to rule. Kennedy wants to appeal. However, Specter says there's no decision to appeal. Specter says he'll consider it and that he's the chair and moves on.
* William Rushers personal letters and documents
Basically it was a shouting match and Spectre told K that he did not run the committee.
Both were shaking afterward
I have that. I am now going to have to re-read it.
Well as a "regular" American, not accustomed to hating, I feel more hate for these men everyday.
Yah, I'll bet Chuckie watches NAACP Basketball.
Spector and Kennedy got into it over a letter that Kennedy's office was supposed to get over to Spectors office. It was a riot!
Kennedy said, "I KNOW you recieved it..." and Spector cut him off saying, "DON'T you tell me what I receieved and what I didn't!!"
Someone said CNN had the video on their front page.
