Justice Samuel Alito: 58 to 42.

Justice Alito has been sworn in to replace Sandra Day O'Connor in the John McKinley seat. Mister Americano is well pleased at this turn of events.

Pleased that the Democratic Senators on the Judiciary Committee showed themselves to be bullies. Pleased at the smackdowns given by Senators Arlen Specter and Lindsey Graham. Pleased to see Senator Edward Kennedy's blustering nonsense during the floor debates. Watching the senior senator from Massachussetts was like watching a wooly mammoth bellow and struggle in a tar pit. All that's left is the fossilization.

And finally, especially pleased that there were 42 votes against Alito, enough to uphold a filibuster if only the Democratic Senators were as crazy as their leftie base.

Now Democrats are left to hope that Alito's decisions are as extreme as they fear and the voters will elect more Democrats in the Congress and a Democrat as President. A loser's consolation. A lifetime appointment in the hand is better than the hope of winning elections in the future.

It is better to win.

Or as Conan the Barbarian put it when asked what is best in life:
"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the woman!"
