Why do people keep electing Half-wits?

Sen. Chuck Schumers opening quotes on the Alito confimation hearings. He said:

While every Supreme Court nominee has a great burden, yours, Judge Alito, is triply high. First, because you have been named to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the pivotal swing vote on a divided court; second, because you have been picked to placate the extreme right wing after the hasty withdrawal of Harriet Miers; and, finally, because your record of opinions and statements on a number of critical Constitutional questions seems quite extreme.

Earlier in the last week or so, Samuel Alito also received the highest grade from the American Bar Association, but when Sen. Schumer was confronted with a earlier quote in which he said

ABA evaluation has been the gold standard by which judicial candidates are judged.(In reference to the nomination of Ruth Bader Ginsburg)

Hat tip: The Political Teen
More proven hypocrisy from you guessed it, a certified america hating liberal. Now if Alito was a dyed in the wool activist liberal judge, Schumer, Kennedy, Feinstein, Reid would all be bowing to his altar as we speak. Not only is he a common sense convervative, he also was nominate by Bush (or bushitler to all you hate america first socialist liberals). Oh wait, just found Sen. Ted "Put a blonde in the Pond" Kennedy's priceless opening statement"

In an era when the White House is abusing power, is excusing and authorizing torture, and is spying on American citizens, I find Judge Alito's support for an all-powerful executive branch to be genuinely troubling. Under the presidents spying program, there are no checks and no balances. There is no outside review of the legality of this brazen infringement on the civil rights and liberties of the American people. Undeterred by the public outcry, the president vows to continue spying on American citizens.

Ultimately, the courts will make the final judgment whether the White House has gone too far. Independent and impartial judges must assess the proper balance between protecting our liberties and protecting our national security."

I wouldn't have expected anything less from ol Ted.
