Missing in Action

Wow! You lay in bed for a day with fever and a puny stomach, and you miss a whole day's worth of news! Funny how that happens.

In case you missed any of it, too...

Over the weekend, Sen. John Kerry returned from his Swiss retreat to help lead the filibuster of Judge Samuel Alito's Supreme Court confirmation. The much ballyhooed move might have succeeded... if it hadn't failed so miserably. The votes for cloture won out in a lopsided 72-to-25 defeat of the filibuster, and Judge Alito was quickly confirmed in a mostly party-line vote. Judge Alito was promptly sworn at -- or in, I forget -- by new Chief Justice Roberts, in time to begin stripping the civil liberties from American citizens before the president's State of the Union address.
