Alito confirmed to Supreme Court

Not that it was any surprise but Scalito now has a life time appointment to the Supreme Court... one more nail in the coffin that was the United States.

Yesterday the senate was able to get the 60 votes necessary to end discussions on Alito, 75 to be precise, yet alito only passed with 58 votes.

Had the the Democrats that voted against Scalito today had voted to continue discussions yesterday a filabuster would have been in affect.

I am utterly disgusted with the Democratic party at the moment, and am seriously considering changing parties. the way things are going we're headed towards a one party system so why bother with the pretense that we actually have a choice in this country.
