Top Ten Kos Kidz Reactions to the Alito Nomination
Without further ado:
Number 10 – John H.: Women should take this for the slap in the face it is – Bush was pressed to appoint a woman to replace O’Connor and the only one he could find was the president of his fan club? Does he really mean to tell us that the only woman worth considering was his ‘office wife’?
How did half the country vote for this f***ing clown?
Number 9 – Smallbottle: Dems shouldn’t even permit hearings until an independent counsel or commission is appointed to uncover all the treason and fraud at the White House. Period.
Number 8 – Ludi: Effing Freepers are over there screaming FIGHT FIGHT! All they want is the nuclear option to go down.
Why do freepers hate America?
Number 7 – metal prophet: …I think that it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that Rove or one of his disciples could start a deceptive ad campaign. They’ll form a fake group with a liberal sounding name and make a bunch of anti-Alioto ads that make use of Italian-American stereotypes. Then, the outrage will break out and Bush will loudly denounce “liberal bigotry” or somesuch and will totally change the subject from Alioto’s views to the fake controversy. In the end, the fake ads will be revealed to be by some GOP front group, but that conviently won’t be revealed until after Alioto is confirmed.
Number 6 – KOTCrum: This is where REAL CARING EVERYDAY people can call, e-mail, snail mail, and visit Democratic senators, especially those on the Jud. Comm. and tell them in no uncertain terms that they MUST FIGHT this nominee as he DOES NOT represent the best interests of the nation.
This is a wild-eyed stab by a legally and morally corrupt administration and party. In the movies this would be at the end of the big barroom brawl scene where the good guy has soundly kicked the a** of the bad guy, only to have the bad guy pull out a hidden knife and come at the hero from behind.
Alert Dems in the right offices that they ought to join the 61% of people who think Bush and his ideas suck.
Number 5 – Darksyde888: Never underestimate “The Rove”…Bush’s Brain is capable of pulling off a stunt like this. Harriet Miers took it for the team (GOP extremists), just so Bush can stuff this chump down our throats. They think we’re pushovers, boy will they be surprised… Alito will get a worse beating in the press than Miers.
Number 4 – Central Scrutinizer: Bush had to install an extreme righty because he’s in so much trouble now he really needs his base to be behind him. You see having a White House full of suspected felons actually makes Bush’s decision easier to pick a caveman to sit on the Supreme Court. You see these people don’t care if you set a covert CIA agent and all of her contacts to be aborted after birth as long as you appoint a judge who won’t let that happen before birth.
Number 3 – Wizard Kitten: This can and should be a defining moment for the Democratic Party. This forces them to stand up and make a distinction- at least that is what I’m hoping for.
If they don’t- kiss the Party goodbye. Women will leave in droves. Progressives will leave in droves. Those of us hanging on to the tiny bit of hope we had that the Dems will put up a fight- we will go now if they don’t.
They must fight this. Or they are toast.
This is it, kids. This is the battle that will define both parties for some time to come.
Let’s do it. I’m tired of f***ing around with these people. If we go down, let’s go down swinging.
Number 2 – thewin: This is the last chance the democratic party has…at least in my eyes for myself. I hate these neocon republicans, but if democrats let this vote pass, they are worse than the republicans.
They let the headlines “Abortion Illegal” and “Corporations not Liable for actions” be able to come true for the next 30 or so years. This will set america back in progression more than anything ever.
The republicans have the Executive and Legislative branch and I’ll be god d***ed if I’ll support a party that lets them pack our last solution for rational thought and reason in this country.
I don’t give a rats a** if the republicans use the nuclear option, what’s the point of having the Fillibuster if you aren’t going to use it. At least go down fighting for the values of america against these nationalists.
And now, Number 1 – DisNoir36: It’s pretty sad that Bush has to cater so much to his base, the christian taliban.
Nice guys, those Kos Kidz…
