Why is this woman crying?


The Political Teen has the video of Judge Alito’s wife breaking down as Sen. Lindsey Graham offers an apology for the past three days of relentless smear attacks by the Dems.

I’ve isolated video of Sen. Graham’s apology:


Download the video (.wmv file). 3.5MB.

I have many differences with Sen. Graham, but thank God for his show of decency and humanity today. Now, where are the apologies from Sens. Schumer, Kennedy, Biden, Feingold, and the rest of smear merchants?



GRAHAM: …Are you really a closet bigot?

ALITO: I’m not any kind of a bigot, I’m not.

GRAHAM: No, sir, you’re not. And you know why I believe that? Not because you just said it — but that’s a good enough reason, because you seem to be a decent, honorable man. I have got reams of quotes from people who have worked with you, African American judges — I’ve lost my quotes.

Judge Higginbotham — I don’t know where they’re at. But glowing quotes about who you are, the way you’ve lived your life; law clerks, men and women, black and white, your colleagues who say that Sam Alito, whether I agree with him or not, is a really good man.

You know why I believe you when you say that you disavow those quotes? Because the way you have lived your life and the way you and your wife are raising your children.

Let me tell you this: Guilt by association is going to drive good men and women away from wanting to sit where you’re sitting. And we’re going to go through a bit of this ourselves as congressmen and senators.

People are going to take a fact that we got a campaign donation from somebody who’s found out to be a little different than we thought they were — and our political opponent’s going to say, “Aha, I got you!”

And we’re going to say, “Wait a minute. I didn’t know that. I didn’t take the money for that reason.”

And you know what? I’m going to believe these senators and congressmen for the most part, because that’s the way we do our business. We meet people here every day. We have photos taken with people — and sometimes you wish you didn’t have your photo taken.

But that doesn’t mean that you’re a bad person because of that association.

Judge Alito, I am sorry that you’ve had to go through this. I am sorry that your family has had to sit here and listen to this.

Ditto. Ditto. Ditto.


Reader Bob. W. writes:

I understand that politics is a blood sport and that anyone who enters

the political arena without a clear understanding of this does so at his

or her peril but, the exhibition being put on by the Democrats in the

Alito confirmation hearings is beyond the pale.

I did not believe that the party of Kennedy (John F., to be clear) and

FDR would ever reach so low as what has been on display over the last

several days. I am a proud Republican but as an American; I am

disgusted, embarrassed and appalled.

My only hope is that some political backlash and retribution comes home

to roost on Ted Kennedy and the rest of what has, unfortunately, become

a pox on the American political system – The Democrat Party.

Hugh Hewitt on the shameless Dems:

Their hard left fever swamp supporters may think this is what moves America, but the better bet is that this is the sort of behavior that disgusts the center.
