Rush is making scathing comparisons of Kennedy and his family background in contrast with Alito and his family background.

she went to go play with her doll house, so I switched back.

Kennedy: Judge Alito . . . If a train is leaving Chicago at 2:00 pm, I'm travelling over a bridge in Martha's Vineyard at 2:15 pm and I want a drink before I drive my brother's campaign worker home. Was I wearing a hat?

Alito: Shut up, you fat murdering drunk bastard. Have another drink.

One of the troubles with Kennedy and the Democrats is that they don't realize how far the "ownership society" has progressed.

Back when they were cutting their political teeth only they and other rich folks owned shares in the stock markets.

Today, the vast majority of people who vote have some sort of 401K or something and own shares in mutual funds. They understand that the value of a mutual fund has nothing to do with Vanguard (which, incidentally, is the primo low-cost mutual fund company -- so lots of average Joes use it), but with the companies whose stocks Vanguard holds in their portfolios.

Alito would in no way gain or lose money, regardless of how a case against Vanguard went. I think that Kennedy and the other trust-fund limosine liberals have no idea how many of us out in middle America who actually work for a living understand these concepts with a fairly high level of sophistication. They are so insulated.

'stare decisis' .... should not trump the Constitution itself,"

I'm not a lawyer but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night [cue music].

As far as I'm concerned: The Constitution = stare decisis maximus. And what about the past decisions the left doesn't like? Dred Scott for instance. Do they really want to assert that bad decisions can never be overturned?

The lefty's lack of commitment to the idea of objective reality and truth always undercuts them in the long run.
