Watching these hearings is painful. Wincing this hard will leave nasty crow's feet.
I do not agree with the pundits. I don't see it their way. My take on Alito bringing up the priviledged snot nosed "radicals" on the college campuses during his years at Princeton is a contemptuous swipe at Kennedy and his ilk.
You gotta love Alito bringing up the ROTC bringing thrown off the Princeton campus during his tenure and how sick this made him. For all the those sixties loving radicals, Alito is the quintessential counter counter-culturist, eh?
"Splash" Kennedy's hostility, IMHO, is a direct result of the absolute fact that if Alito had been the judge in the Mary Jo Kopechne incident, "Splash" would have served serious time, for murder. He'd never be in a position to undermine the tenets of this great country on a daily basis, that's for sure. Splash can't shine Alito's "special" shoes or clean his pool for that matter.
These proceedings are good for one thing, America needs this flashlight. D.C. is too far away from most Americans to smell the gangrene, but here they can see it, up close.
Joe Biden took over eleven minutes to ask his first question. The left is out of its league. Alito is the real deal.
Here is a poll from the notoriously lefty AOL:

Best description of the hearings so far (on FOX);
"Alito is a work horse, not the show horse that Roberts was but he is doing a great job".
Yup, that just about sums it up. Roberts is an impossible act to follow. I mean really. He is the closet thing to "divine" you are going to find on Gd's green earth. That Alito could follow him and do so able a job speaks volumes to his intelligence, his reason, and his character.
