Cloture fails sustained (thanks, RN), 75-25.

With apologies to Boz Scaggs:

Alito!
Whoa-oh-a-oh

He's loved by wingnuts
He's got the votes
Democrats just let him go, whoa

Alito!

He said, a few more Dems, and we'll get it
Sail right in, then they'll regret it

Wave goodbye to Roe, whoa.

Thanks! I'll be here all week!

Extra special shout-outs go to Akaka (HI), Baucus (MT), Bingaman (NM), Byrd (WV), Cantwell (WA), Carper (DE), Dorgan (ND), Inouye (HI), Johnson (SD), Kohl (WI), Landrieu (LA), Lieberman (CT), Lincoln (AR), Nelson (FL), Nelson (NE), Pryor (AR), Rockefeller (WV), Salazar (CO).

Hope you got to see/hear

Hope you got to see/hear Sen. Kennedy. He was in full on rock star mode. Check CSPAN-2, maybe they the hearings up online, or hopefully the Kennedy part. Kerry went before him, and he made good arguments in the patented droning Kerry style, but Kennedy had the fire in his belly.

I imagine that if it was

I imagine that if it was that good, it'll show up on C&L or Olbermann later.

Right now I'm doing my best to entertain myself by sorting through a few hundred 45s that I came into this weekend.

That, and having a couple of stiff belts of Lagavulin 16.
