Democrats stand for naught

There is a point to partisanship after all.
 
Senator Diane Feinstein takes a curious stand regarding Judge Alito and the Supreme Court. “I do not see a likelihood of a filibuster,” said Feinstein. “This might be a man I disagree with, but it doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be on the court.”
 
Well, what would be a reason why he shouldn’t be on the court?

A friend of mine constantly makes excuses for the actions of Colorado Senator Salazar. “I may not agree with some of his decisions, but I honor his right to make decisions as he sees fit.”

Isn’t that just asking for constituents to be shat upon? My friend thus excuses Salazar for approving Gonzales, he of the torture memo. I can see giving our leaders the leeway to act upon complexities of governance which the population may not understand, but there should be a line draw when it comes to moral issues such as civil rights and torture.

Now Diane Feinstein recuses herself from trying to stop Alito’s nomination. Everybody can smell what will be a disasterous appoinment to the nation’s highest court. Who else but the Democratic representatives are supposed to stop him?
