Hats Off to Senators Kerry and Kennedy
While, I believe the filibuster fight should have been initiated weeks ago, what criticism would have gone to Kerry and Senator Ted Kennedy if they had done nothing? They would have been ripped for that too.
While the battle was joined too late, they at least put up a fight and got the objections many of us have to Alito more strongly on the record.
I’m not sure where we go from here with the 19 spineless weasels in the Democratic party who helped assure Alito’s confirmation by voting against the filibuster, but I am sure we should at least extend some degree of credit where it is due.
So I say thank you to Senators Kerry and Kennedy for fighting back on our behalf.
