Bush and the rest of the freeperati keep talking about the dignity of Scalito's confirmation process. Seems like that loon Coburn put a crimp in all that, but let it pass. Here's a gloriously twisted statement from Dear Leader in WaPo: Read below the fold...

As we gear up to another day of blathering and bloviating over the Alito hearings, it seems appropriate to make note of this historic ruling from another court (via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution):
Members of the American Dialect Society gathered in Albuquerque, N.M., on Friday evening to select the word or phrase of the year.
In the end, "truthiness" won out. Read below the fold...

For all the throngs out there, especially those wearing thongs, who have been wondering where I have been... "I cannot bear another day without one of Shystee's inane self-referential rants!"
Well, I have been battling an alien symbiant from the planet Nickatina. I was able to detach it one week ago, but it lurks nearby, at the downstairs neighbors', at the corner sto'... Read below the fold...

A Suit to Suit a Viper
I took a viper and I put him in a suit
I combed his hair across his head
To make him look real cute
I reminded him to keep his venom low
I taught him everything I know
Everything I know
I found a scorpion and trained him how to sit
He practiced tea and sympathy
His act was quite a hit
I took his stinger and wrapped it in a bow
I taught him everything I know
Everything I know Read below the fold...

A Note To Readers: If you want to follow this from the beginning of the hearing and work toward the end, you can scroll to the bottom of the post which starts with the beginning of the hearing, and then work upwards, although each update works in the opposite direction, if you get my meaning.
UPDATE 8: Whoops, they aren't taking a lunch break. So, now it's Alito.
They've been lowering expectations like mad, but it's clear he's going to be impressive. Read below the fold...

And now they're all saying, "Jack who?"
Please, don't let Bush get away it. From the Texas Observer:
Four months after he took the oath of office in 2001, President George W. Bush was the attraction, and the White House the venue, for a fundraiser organized by the alleged perpetrator of the largest billing fraud in the history of corporate lobbying. Read below the fold...

SCOTUS Lube: A Magical Gift for the Supreme Court Nominee in Your Family!
WASHINGTON -- Insisting that God "certainly needs to be involved" in the Supreme Court confirmation process, three Christian ministers today blessed the doors of the hearing room where Senate Judiciary Committee members will begin considering the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito on Monday.

So, the White House has put out a statement critical of Rev. Robertson's entirely correct biblical interpretation of Mr. Sharon's massive stroke as an indication of God's wrath against a Jew who committed the unpardonable sin of viewing Israel as not merely a Jewish homeland, but also an independent democracy, and thus, failing to hear God's clear message, that there is to be no accommodation with the Palestinians.

I hear this guy's pretty interesting.
More info on my talk here.
If you're in the neighborhood (and Jeff City isn't exactly a place people visit often), feel free to drop by.
I've heard the room I'm talking in is a bit small, however, so get there early.
Seriously, if any of you wish to know more about this, I'll be happy to pass on more info. Read below the fold...
