This is the second day of Senatorial questioning of Alito.
On this third day of the hearings, where do we stand?.
In a deep hole.
The Democratic Senators have been doing a good job, they have.
You won't know that from reading or watching any of the SCLM, and that is part of the problem, as Armando at Daily Kos demonstrates with devastating precision. Go read it, I'll wait. Read below the fold...
