Senate Minority Leader Concedes That They can't block the Alito Nomination

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) conceded today that they don't have to votes to filibuster the Alito nomination. Sen. Reid released this statement today

Everyone knows there is not enough votes to support a filibuster

Further down in the article he also stated he would still vote for one to send a "message" to the supporters of Alito, or in other words, so Sen. Reid can still appear (and Senators Kennedy, Kerry, Feinstein) can keep there base happy with the KOS and DU'ers base groups. Hell, Alito has even got the support of Sen. Byrd (D-WV) who also scorned the debate process C-Span (Video Here)and called the process "appalling". This is just another cheap stunt to keep the radical fringe of the Democrat party happy and to allow them to think in their "Ivory Towers" that they are stickin it to GW Bush, when only they are making themselves more irrelevant by the minute.
