The hearings begin today on the confirmation of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. I expect most of the time today to be spent by the Senators giving stump speeches. NSA wiretapping, Roe V Wade and Affirmative Action should all be featured prominently.
The hypocrisy of Sen. Kennedy and Sen. Schumer should be particularly notable. (comparing their actions today to their actions in the hearings on Justice Bader-Ginsburg)
