What Makes Sammy Run, Part Duh

Limp Frist lets rather obvious cat out of bag.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told Republican Party activists on Friday night that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito was the "worst nightmare of liberal Democrats."

Frist, a Tennessee Republican, made the remark to fellow Republicans during a private tour he gave them of the Senate chamber when the Senate was not in session.

Frist was not available for comment following his remarks.

Hee hee. I'm sure Rove and Mehlman are just thrilled with that one. Not that it will matter in the end. It's not as if the Democrats will actually put up a fight, when making the usual mewling noises seems to work about as well for them.

It would be nice if they would actually fight and filibuster, but if they can't even keep Ben Nelson on the fucking reservation, then what kind of party discipline are they maintaining? And it must be noted that if they did happen to fight, filibuster, and somehow succeed in derailing this chump's nomination, they still have to be ready to gird themselves for an even worse fight. Because these people just do not stop.

The Democrats might be thinking at this point that they should have endorsed the hapless Harriet Miers, she of the serious legal mind and fawning Dear Leader postcards. Because Alito is going to be a much bigger pig in a poke, and unlike Bob Roberts, they can't just swoon over Strip Search Sammy cornflower blue eyes and crooked grin. He's just not as dreamy.

(And by the way, megadittoes to just walking Roberts through the front door. If his minority opinion in the recent Oregon assisted-death ruling is any indication, he's a bit, erm, rightier than he let on. Me, I'd be thrilled with nine centrists. But the people who pushed Roberts -- and now Alito -- want nothing less than total domination. They have no use for balance; they have a big fucking thumb on the scale at all times. This is not exactly a secret.)

Asked about the senator's remark, Frist spokesman Bob Stevenson said that Alito "is a thoughtful mainstream conservative jurist who is well respected by his peers, by Democrats and Republicans alike."

Stevenson added, "There are liberals, many of them represented by the outside groups, who will do anything to kill any nominee put forward by this administration."

Please. They can't even get it together enough to filibuster. This sort of brainless hyperbole is just red meat to the Just Us Sunday morons. Alito may have his stare decisis opinions memorized thorughly, but his insistence on running from his record and softshoeing his job applications indicates he's nothing more than a reliable lackey. He's perfect for this maladministration. He'll be a great caddy the next time Scalia and Cheney go duck hunting while they discuss the future of the nation. Between his obeisance to to the imperial presidency, and love for corporate power over individual liberties, he'll fit right in with this gang.

Welcome to your future, America. How's that values vote workin' for ya?
