Scalito's on his Way

The more I think about this nomination, the more I doubt that Samuel Alito will not be confirmed. The fact that the Senate has confirmed him in the past, that the early read out of the Gang of 14 is no-filibuster, that Alito's friends have done well on the talk circuit... it just leans toward confirmation.

George Will makes a point today that tilts the balance even more toward confirmation. Harry Reid is leading the opposition:

When Reid endorsed Scalia for chief justice, he said: "I disagree with many of the results that he arrives at, but his reason for arriving at those results are [sic] very hard to dispute." There you have, starkly and ingenuously confessed, the judicial philosophy -- if it can be dignified as such -- of Reid and like-minded Democrats: Regardless of constitutional reasoning that can be annoyingly hard to refute, we care only about results. How many thoughtful Democrats will wish to take their stand where Reid has planted that flag?

Those who attack are declaring their "littleness" and turning away from the gift of "grandeur." See Our Holy Inheritance blog:

hrmph. Religion. Ok, whatever.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand, I'm expecting to see the usual carnival of moronic politicians make their positions on this more clear in the coming weeks.

Without the likes of Conyers and Pelosi, this stuff wouldn't be interesting at all!
