2 More Democratic Senators Back Alito - New York Times

Link: 2 More Democratic Senators Back Alito - New York Times.

The two new Democratic backers, Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia and Tim Johnson of South Dakota, joined Senator Ben Nelson, Democrat of Nebraska, in crossing party lines to endorse Judge Alito, whom many Senate Democrats have assailed as so conservative as to be out of the judicial and social mainstream.

"I make up my own mind," Mr. Byrd said. He said he had become convinced that Judge Alito was "an honorable man who loves his country and loves his Constitution. Can we really ask for more?"

Uh, yeah, we could. We could ask for someone with moderate balance and a sense of decency.
