Alito’s In
Posted by: Dale Franks on Monday, January 30, 2006

The whole Alito filibuster deal didn't work out too well for the Democrats.
The Republican-led Senate on Monday soundly defeated a Democratic bid to block Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito — clearing the way for confirmation of the 55-year-old federal judge, who could move the nation's highest court to the right.

On a vote of 72-25—12 more than the 60 needed—the Senate approved a motion to end debate and proceed forward on President George W. Bush's nominee.

A confirmation vote is set for Tuesday and Alito has a commitment from a required simple majority to be approved.
So, I guess Samuel Alito will be looking at townhouses in Georgetown.

Apparently, blogger is threatening to out a gay Senator if he votes to confirm Alito.

It’s nice how the left has become so principled.
