Deny Bush His Magic Moment

Via Susie Madrak, I see that Attytood saved me the trouble of writing about how the Democrats should filibuster the Alito nomination before Bush's State of the Union Address.

That sure would change the dynamic of all the pundit's post morterm post partem analysis of the delvery of another giant speech turd.

I yearn to see them pull this off: simple plan:
Nobody asked us, but if Harry Reid had a true flare for politics -- and for the dramatic -- he would try to convince his 43 other members, in the name of party unity, to filibuster Alito...for exactly one day. Why? Because Tuesday night will be the one night in the first half of 2006 when regular folks may actually watch a political event on television.

How dramatic would it be for the big anchors to start their broadcasts at 9 p.m. with the news that Democrats had banded together -- for 24 hours, in the spirit of Jefferson Smith -- to tell America what they really think of Alito, that he will tip the scales on the High Court for big business and big government against the little guy.

I say don't stop at a day - filibuster the fuck out of this nomination.

Here's a talking point, "Alito thinks Bush can do no wrong and a women has no rights!"
