Tweedledum and Tweedledee

It seems that the libertine Democrats have decided to try to stop the appointment of Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court after all.  (Peoria Journal Star, 1/28/06, page A3)  They hope to do this on Monday although the article concludes that there are at least 62 votes to stop any possible filibuster.  (It takes 60 votes to end a filibuster at the present time.)  Pray that the filibuster does not occur, Judge Alito is appointed to the Supreme Court, and he is not swayed by the power of the position.

The article identifies Senators Ted Kennedy and John Kerry (both of Massachusetts) as being involved but does not identify any other specific leaders of the movement except by reference to “others.”  My educated guess is that one of those “others” is Illinois’ own Senator Dick Durbin.  

If I am correct and Senator Durbin is involved, it is also likely that Illinois Senator Obama is somewhere lurking in the shadows.  I have been watching the way both of Illinois’ Senators vote on issues before the Senate as provided by the Peoria Journal Star.  They are Illinois’ version of Tweedledum and Tweedledee.  They may well be tied together at the hip!

One other thing I noticed in this article.  This is the first time that I can recall that retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has not been referred to as a moderate or a centralist.  The article simply says “The 55-year-old appeals court judge would replace Sandra Day O’Connor….”  Maybe, since Judge Alito will soon be on the Court and Justice O’Connor will soon (Not soon enough!) be off of the bench, the writer of the article decided not to bother with the façade that she is somehow a moderate.  As I’ve declared before, no one who supports the murder of innocent unborn babies through judicial fiat is a moderate or centralist.  No one!!!
