Perfectly timed too. Do the Dem's have a calendar?

"Get your abortions while they last."

That is an example of bad taste and bigoted stereotyping.

Posted by: The Iceman (8T) | Jan 31, 2006 11:37:41 AM

Way, way unfair there, Debbie. I actually expected better from you.

Posted by: cathar (8T) | Jan 31, 2006 11:40:49 AM

Let me be the first to congratulate Alito. Well done.

"Get your abortions while they last."

That was rather crude.

I wouldn't trust Bush to pick his nose - but here we stand watching his decisions make our history.

So, how soon 'til one of the Bush twins goes on a last minute day trip to Canada?

All I can think of is that Boz Scaggs song "Lido Shuffle". Alito ... whoo oooh aah ohhhhh

Filibust LOL! That silly John Kerry...Everything he touches turns to poo.

hrhppg, contrary to my expectations with Debbie, your flailing cruelty above only confirms my usual opinion of you.

Posted by: cathar (8T) | Jan 31, 2006 11:54:08 AM

So I'm the poster you've decided to attack today. Yawn!

Your opinion doesn't matter to me. Actually from what I read here - it doesn't matter to a lot of people.

Pretty dumb-assed flip headline about abortion.

Posted by: montclair_is_crazy | Jan 31, 2006 12:10:04 PM

A little OT.

I often check out DemocraticUnderground.com on days in which conservatism is advanced.

I am ashamed to admit it, but schadenfreude has it's charms.

So today the asylum inmates are most certainly rattling their cages, but I have to share one of the best posts I have ever read there.

Honestly, we might be witnessing the end of democracy in America. People that voted for the republican party really do not know what you've gotten us into. I have the sense that all of our backs will be against the wall. At least I'll have been on the right side of history.

Posted by: lasermike026 | Jan 31, 2006 12:16:08 PM

I don't mean to diminish your certain fear, lasermike but you do make me laugh...

Posted by: Right of Center™ | Jan 31, 2006 12:18:02 PM

I'm more worried about the limits (or lack thereof) on presidential powers than about the abortion issue. The checks and balances between our branches of government are too important to allow them to be undermined.

I hope I'm worrying for nothing, I really do.

Posted by: JessG | Jan 31, 2006 12:18:50 PM

What should matter most to you today, hrhppg, is that you posted an appallingly cruel remark that you're bound to regret tomorrow if you evince any remaining shreds of humanity. So stifle that yawn and get to praying..

Posted by: cathar (8T) | Jan 31, 2006 12:19:04 PM

aren't you a bit over the top? this only of the 3 co-equal branches of the government and they don't make laws.

Posted by: The Iceman (8T) | Jan 31, 2006 12:19:56 PM

Hey, if you don't like it here, you can do what I do and start your own nation:


Posted by: Miss Martta (8T) | Jan 31, 2006 12:20:03 PM

Actually, I think I'm spot on. I'll bet money that Alito will give the president imperial powers to override the constitution and the laws of the united states. When this conservative government starts reneging on the promises that got them into office, then I'll know I got it right.

Posted by: lasermike026 | Jan 31, 2006 12:26:01 PM

At least Senator Lautenberg and Senator Standin had the vision and excellence of mind to praise Alito while saying he was an extremist schmuck who was nonetheless a good person who hates women and minorities while being an upstanding man that would support convicting innocent people while having excellent credentials and training who would starve puppies just to force teenage girls to wear fur.

What empty suits we have for senators.

Posted by: Appletony | Jan 31, 2006 12:29:44 PM

I think lautenberg was just being cordial. I think he voted not to confirm Alito and I think will vote NO when they get to the vote.

Posted by: lasermike026 | Jan 31, 2006 12:32:49 PM

um, laser, the vote is over. If you think it is the "end of democracy" perhaps you could be clearer on the moment of its ending?

Posted by: Right of Center™ | Jan 31, 2006 12:34:41 PM

"I'll bet money that Alito will give the president imperial powers to override the constitution and the laws of the united states."

Yup, right after he shoots dead the other justices, and declares himself "Super-Duper Supreme Justice".

Dude...Clear the haze, and the over simplified paranoia.

Posted by: stealth | Jan 31, 2006 12:36:43 PM

I'm in agreement w/ you on the Presidential powers issue JessG. I fear Alito will be a rubber stamp for the Bush Administration - and America has three more long years to go of the Bush/Cheney crookedness.

You know things are coming to a head when both Bob Barr and Al Gore can find common ground regarding the abuse of Executive Powers....

So Bush considers the 1978 FISA Law to be "old law" and therefore discarded - Gosh, Georgie - The Constitutuion is 200 + years old - does that qualify as "old law" too ?? God save us from this dangerous moron
