So Much for That Whole Chivalry and Compassion…Thing

Crooks and Liars has video up of compassionate conservative caring hubby Samuel Alito leaving yesterday’s hearing. And leaving Mrs. Kodak Moment to fend for herself in the crowd.

Never mind that Republican Lindsey Graham made her cry. Never mind this has clearly been stressful on her and the rest of the family. Never mind that she’s left back there to take care of the kids, the in-laws and the sister while Sammy gladhands his way through the crowd.

She got that sympathetic headline for him to start the day yesterday, so she can just fend for herself. Classy.
