Doin' the DiFi

And how does one do the “DiFi”? Well, it can be done in a variety of ways. But here’s just one example, as it relates to the upcoming vote to confirm Judge Sam Alito.

“Let’s not filibuster, there’s no reason he shouldn’t be on the court, BUT I am not going to vote for him.”

Done as only Diane can.

A Democrat who plans to vote against Samuel Alito sided on Sunday with a Republican colleague on the Senate Judiciary Committee in cautioning against a filibuster of the Supreme Court nominee. “I do not see a likelihood of a filibuster,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif. “This might be a man I disagree with, but it doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be on the court.” She said she will not vote to confirm the appeals court judge, based on his conservative record. But she acknowledged that nothing emerged during last week’s hearings to justify any organized action by Democrats to stall the nomination.

Way to weasle Diane. I expect your colleagues to follow suit.

    I dunno. Their donor base is in such a froth for a filibuster, they might have to mount a doomed effort just to keep the Dean Scream Green coming in…
