Senate Slaps Down Alito Filibuster, 75-25

The Senated ended the one-day Massachusetts filibuster of Samuel Alito by an embarrasing 75-25 margin (60 would have done it). But not before Senator Teddy Kennedy showed that he is still crazy after all these years.

    I watched the Cloture Vote on C-Span today and was appaled by the length of time it took to get the vote completed. (50 minutes) Those “Semators reminded me of a bunch of roudy elementary school kids acting up in an unsupervised classroom. They, rather than taking their seats and voting seemed to delight in gathering in front of the Senate floor trying to decide what to do next to disrupt tthe entire procedure and act up like the juviniles they actually portreyed

    The only consolation in the entire vote was that those obstructionists democrats got their pants beat off.

    Kennedy, Kerry, Reid Durbin and the rest of you sore losers, “EAT YOUR HEART OUT”
