Hugh Hewitt: It's Over. Slam Dunk.

Hugh Hewitt, this evening, says the chance of any resistance to the confirmation of SCOTUS nominee Samuel A. Alito is "over." Slam dunk. Gone.

An immigrant dad. His son in Princeton. Hugh says the President loves to tell a story and, because of this, the President would logically make this choice.

It is becoming patently clear to me that, from day one, almost from hour one, the Dems by way of the DEMs got into the DEM vein and immediately began to self-destruct. The gang of 14 has already, somewhat, hinted that they will collectively not recommend a filibuster of this nomination and may, in fact, go for the-so-called Nuclear Option.

They have not yet totally coagulated on the issue but it was indirectly hinted there may be unanimity soon. Senator Mike DeWine (R, Ohio) so much as came directly out and said so during the Hugh Hewitt show.

The Dems appear to be drawing the line in the sand from the start. It is theorized that this will be the one nomination that may, in fact, change the face and focus of the court for decades to come. The Battle Royale is indeed coming. Will we be bled by leeches and paper cuts, or will it be from tanks, artillery pieces and the Nuclear Option?

A small aside: I just heard Alan Colmes tonight, on Fox's Hannity & Colmes label Alito as "an extreme conservative" and ask: "is the appointment of Alito a distraction from the indictment of Scooter Libby?"

Folks, a clarion call: Let the Games Begin!

It got Really Silly (I call this RS) from moment one. Little Chuckie Schumer first had this despicable thing to say regarding Alito:

This morning, I went and visited Rosa Parks in the Capitol Rotunda, to pay my respects. Being in the presence of Ms. Parks was awe inspiring. This was a woman who changed history with one thin dime. She paid her fare, and took her rightful seat on the bus, and America was never the same again. Like Rosa Parks, Judge Alito will be able to change history by virtue of where he sits. The real question today is whether Judge Alito would use his seat on the bench, just as Rosa Parks used her seat on the bus, to change history for the better, or whether he would use that seat to reverse much of what Rosa Parks, and so many others, fought so hard, and for so long, to put in place.

This, on its face, is a ridiculous and straitjacket-moonbat comment regarding an individual that ALL his Democratic cronies confirmed in 1990. No dissenting votes. NOT ONE. Hello? For those of you just tuning in to this post: not ONE Democratic dissenting vote against confirming Alito to the 3rd USDCA in 1990.

LCS, Little Chuckie Schumer, may in fact be eligible for my very first weekly BZ Moonbat Comment Award (the BZ-MCA) -- but I'll hold that in abeyance until I finalize the graphics for this esteemed award.

Then there was the Chris Matthews comment and about it Hugh Hewitt said:
HH: I thought that would be the worst slander of the day, but then Chris Matthews began Hardball tonight, and I want to read this. I'm sitting here holding in my hands a disgusting document, said Chris Matthews, put out not for attribution, but it came from the Democrats. They are circulating it. I can say that. It's a complaint sheet against Judge Alito's nomination. The first thing they nail about this Italian-American is that he failed to win a mob conviction in 1988. They nail him on not putting Italian mobsters in jail. Why would they bring up this ethnically charged issue? This is either a very bad coincidence, or very bad politics. Either way, it's going to hurt them, this document. Not abortion rights, not civil rights, but that he failed to nail some mobsters back in 1988. This is at the top of their list of what they've got against this guy. Amazingly bad politics.

Amazingly bad politics indeed.

What will be the Dems Talking Points?

  • Alito is an Extreme Conservative
  • He will, by his very nature, overturn Roe v. Wade
  • He is an elitist; just look at what the GOP said about Miers; c'mon: Princeton?
  • There's a great deal of difference between 1990 and 2005
  • He's another Oppressive White Male (OWM)
  • He DEMANDED that females ask for PERMISSION from males prior to abortion (WRONG!)
A few more Moonbat TPs:

  • He defended NC in re: Sasquatch v. Northern Cascade logging;
  • He believes in Global Warming and the eradication of thousands of local ports
  • He thinks that the UN should be the final arbiter of the United States
I suspect that the Dems and the DEMs are absolutely apoplectic because Bush made 1) an End-Around Appointment and 2) the Libby Issue is MAAN: "Much Ado About Nothing."

Very good post!! I love the nickname Little Chuckie Schumer. Somehow when Rush or others give liberals nicknames it makes me smile instead of being mad at what they say.

I've noticed you mention Hugh Hewitt a lot. Did he write mainly Christian books 20 yrs. ago? I vaguely remember his name from like maybe some Christian prophecy books. Or I am I getting him mixed up with someone else?

Another technical question for you. How do you add the extra things on the side of your blog like your weekly thought?

Last question, would you mind if I put your blog as a link on my blog? Thanks.

Blo Zep:
While I have been in a decline, you have been on FIRE! Whoa, excellent post! You know, the DEM dems just can't win this one. I wish the nuclear option would be used just in case they tryta filibuster him! I have SOOOOO had it with their arrogance and self righteousness. I know they don't have a monopoly on that type of behavior, but golly it seems like they fight dirty. I know you are a bit older than me and I want to know if your guardians ever talked to you about "fighting dirty." My grandma told me a story about how when my daddy was young and being harassed by the local bully, not to ever fight dirty. It seems as though honour is lost nowadays. The DEM dems (ha ha ha) keep fighting dirty and it is never a good fight when stones are being tossed at defenseless people. Not to say that the Repubs are defenseless, but rather they are constantly being ATTACKED by these LEFTIST DEM pigs. GEESH! I can't take this anymore!

Unfortunatly, this is all the time i have today. I was able to read all of this post! But my comment may not be as great as i would like. I have a FULL day of homeschool because we took yesterday off for halloween.

I TOO LOVE your nicknames, and the moonbat reference!

Well, can't remark like i wanted to.. my 18 month old, and 5 year old have decided to crowd around me while i type and are now beginning to fight! (I type fast)..

LMC: Gosh yes, I would be honored if you put my blog on your blogroll! I refer to HH because, essentially, he started my interest in politics and blogging. I agree with a great deal of Hewitt's philosophy and occasionally disagree -- but he customarily treats callers and guests with decency and courtesy.

LMC: also, if you send an e-mail to me, I'll try to run you through the stuff on the side. It'll be like the blind leading the blind. My techno-ability is, shall we say, kinda limited. But hey, I'm at:

Mahndisa: Thanks for the kudos! After a night and morning of listening to the Dem/DEM response, I go back to my Battle Royale scenario: this is gonna git ooog-lee!

Rebecca: Thanks for the great comments, hope your Halloween was great and the kids were safe!

Political Pugilism.

I believe in your part of the world the term, “go time” is used.

I hope the Dems are up for the fight. The best way to promote conservatism is to have this fight. So chomp down on your mouthpiece and let the blood fly.

I just read your profile. I thought you were female, so now I know why you are so logical! I was beginning to think we had a new Anne Coulter here!!

SOOOO, I would be interested in your thoughts about the new news..
#1. Delay got a new judge!!!!

#2. Reid is now in a closed door session in congress to 'discuss' (the true word phrase is 'to conive a better conspiracy to bring Bush down because the current ones are failing')..
the libby indictment and pre-war intelligence on the Iraq war..

Reid said in a statement that he thinks Americans need to know what really went down in the process in making the decision...

Then Frist was on MSNBC saying what Reid was doing was an irresponsible political game...etc..

I hope Reid loses his job like Daschle did.. I swear, they never learn do they?

Here's what I think is actually starting to happen to the Dems: they really ARE starting to fray. They've tried just about every move possible to this point and, despite the fact they perceive GWB to be quite stupid, he's just not giving up and his entire regime hasn't fallen in flames.

Michelle Malkin calls them Unhinged, and I really believe they are beginning to completely unravel -- despite the fact they are shouting the GOP is in tatters -- which it is not.

What the GOP recently showed is this: it can disagree with itself, make adjustments, and come right back. The GOP is NOT in tatters. Karl Rove was NOT indicted, nor was Libby on the original charge. Delay got a different judge (the do things like that in Texas) and Frist isn't giving interviews behind bars.

The Dems are beginning to act like cornered animals, and the Rule 21 invocation is, I think, just the beginning. I believe we should be prepared to have every card pulled, every trick played, every lie told.
