FILIBUSTER! FILIBUSTER!
I've gotta agree with JPod:
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Please, please, please, please filibuster Alito a day before the State of the Union. Let the president put about four minutes into the first 10 about the efforts to deny him a simple up-or-down vote through the use of the same sort of backroom maneuvering that made it impossible for segreagationist laws to be passed in the 1950s. Let the public come to know what, exactly, a filibuster is -- so that the word can recover its properly disgraceful reputation. Exposed to the light of day in a very high-profile situation, no filibuster can possibly hold, and its failure will taint any and all future suggestions that it is an acceptable way to do the public business. Ohhhhhhhhh, pleeeeease...
