I only got a chance to listen to a bit of the Alito hearings so far and fortunately or unfortunately have only heard Kennedy’s questioning in full. I think that I can sum up Kennedy’s entire point in a single rambling sentence. Let me try.
I’m going to make pompous, hyperbolic, misrepresentations of your stated views and then totally ignore any counter-argument that you attempt to make because my political motives are met by insinuating that you are a bigot, a racist and believe that the President has unlimited powers as opposed to having a substantive discussion about what your actual views are.
Yeah, I think that pretty much sums it up.
