"I very much hope that our state's senators will vote to confirm Judge Alito since his views are far more consistent with both the Democrats and Republicans who elected them in Arkansas than the far left views of his chief critics like Ted Kennedy and Charles Schumer. What some of the partisan senators attempted to do to Judge Alito was disgraceful, and his composure and calm during the vicious but toothless attacks fired at him by the likes of Kennedy more than showed his qualification to be on the Supreme Court. It's a shame Teddy Kennedy didn't have to go through such scrutiny to be a United States Senator or there would be an open seat in Massachusetts right now."
I like the whole statement, but that last sentence took the words right out of my mouth.
