After Alito (the hearings, anyway)

Over at Ezra's, I've got a long retrospective on the Alito situation. Took a long time to write, but it expresses what I've been thinking as I watched this week's action. As you can guess, it's not especially happy. I think there are some nice bits in there as far as the writing goes.

In the excitingly titled "The Image of the Chessmaster", I consider the possibilities for Democrats presenting themselves as smart strategic thinkers who know how to properly defend America.

Sure, Iran's queen could take our rook. But then we take their queen. Which is why they won't. We're MAD Tough.

Perusing your blog, specifically, "The Ethical Werewolf", I have arrived at what I believe is a defensible inference. Both you and your readers would welcome news of in-your-face overt opposition to your "smirking chimp", my "dum'ya botch".

In plainer terms, I want to run for Representative for Pennsylvania's 10th Congressional District on a platform calling for the impeachment of President George Walker Bush.

Incidentally, I deliberately referred to your blog, to indicate that I visited your blog as an individual, and not as a spammer. Yes, that last is an illustion to a "pre-deconstruction" chick flick with a rating of two and a half hankies.

Oh, alright (!) already, I'll own up to it. I owe getting my message out to so many bloggers to COPY/PASTE ... gim'me a break ... will'ya puh-lease! I got to get the word out somehow.

Ah, before you click on any of the enclosed hyperlinks, please read the entirely of my comment. For example, the three planks I nailed together in my platform out to get me elected. "impeach bush" is the first plank. The second is "impeach bush". The third is like the second, "impeach bush".

To continue, the first hyperlink below leads to the opening salvo of my campaign.

As for the second hyperlink, it leads to evidence that my candidacy is about more than opposition solely for the sake of opposition.

oh, by the bye, it's a good guess you'll find what I have to say in PROMETHEAN COMMENT interesting to the point of startling. In that segment, I advance the case that the mere nomination of Judge Alito is tantamount to treason
