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.

Heartbreaking!

UpChuck didn't care to hear Alito's answer.

Of course he doesn't. The cameras aren't on him while Alito is answering.

I could do violence to Schumer

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.

What is the rationale behind stacking the most high-profile committee in the U.S. Senate with loons, e.g. Feingold, Leahy, etc., cretins, e.g. Kohl, Feinstein, among others, and blowhards, e.g. Biden and Schumer?

Do the Democrats actually think they're actually advancing their cause through these hearings?

So how is Schumer going to vote? The suspense is killing me.

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.

There is no subpoena. He called Rusher and Rusher said go over and read the stuff.

My former best friend once told me that conservative essentially means close minded.

Have to give Senator Specter credit.

He shut down Kennedy this morning, and he just shut down Schumer.

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?

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.

Schumer is such an idiot. Lots of people do the same as Alito...put stuff on a job application that they think might be relevant at the time, then in future applications forget about those things because they have no relevance in their lives anymore.

Way to go, Arlen! "Sen. Schumer, your time is up!!!!"

Alito said all he could.

He was a passive member due to the ROTC issue, never got that deeply involved, and is against any bad stuff authors of articles might have published.

Schumer belongs to an organization that excludes women.
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.

UpChuck didn't care to hear Alito's answer.

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.

From Scotusblog

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

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.
