The Frenchurian (ex)Candidate Responds!

Further evidence to the groundbreaking reportage here.

"Senate Democrats, who presented a united front against the nomination of Judge Alito in the Judiciary Committee, seem unwilling to risk the public criticism that might come with a filibuster — particularly since there is very little chance it would work. Judge Alito's supporters would almost certainly be able to muster the 60 senators necessary to put the nomination to a final vote.
A filibuster is a radical tool. It's easy to see why Democrats are frightened of it. But from our perspective, there are some things far more frightening. One of them is Samuel Alito on the Supreme Court."
...and the Frenchurian (ex) candidate responds:

“I support a filibuster of Judge Alito’s nomination. Judge Alito’s confirmation would be an ideological coup on the Supreme Court. We can’t afford to see the Court’s swing vote, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, replaced with a far-right ideologue like Samuel Alito."

OK, OK, I admit it! Kerry is old news. But the fact is, any time I have an excuse to post that Kerry/NASA picture (or some derivation thereof), I "hop" at the chance!!
