Miss Kitty at the Battle of Rancho Alito
Republicans and Democrats are preparing to use the partisan battle over judicial nominations as a campaign issue in the midterm election this year. Republicans say the Democratic filibuster of lower-court judge helped them knock of former Democratic Senate leader Tom Daschle of South Dakota two years ago.
If Democrats want to make judges a campaign issue, â€œwe welcome that debate on our side. Weâ€™ll clean your clock,â€ said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
While I have no doubt that Republicans will throw an epic bitch-fit if the Democrats attempt to filibuster Alito, they would probably have a bit more ‘bring it on’ street cred if they sent out someone a tad more butch than the sissy-boy homunculus from South Carolina. I mean, if, and a very big if, the Democrats manage to sucessfully filibuster Alito, Graham will run shrieking from the Senate floor crying like a four year-old girl who just snapped the head off of her favorite My Little Pony.
