The light of day
The Samuel Alito confirmation hearing has been a major victory for conservatives. The more that the American public sees of the tactics and personalities of the left's puppets in the Senate, the more they realize that, much like Georgia Democrat Zell Miller has noted, that the Democrat Party has abandoned reality and logic and the high ground.
It is truly pitiful the way that Senators Durbin, Schumer, Biden, Leahy, and Splash's owner, Teddy, have engaged in character assassination. However, the liberal left's ideology and tactics will only work in darkness, behind the scenes, and can't withstand the light of day. When the public sees it clearly, as they have during this hearing and during the Roberts confirmation, they will see liberalism for what it is, an intellectual game of distorting reality.
