Democrats Go Over The Line

Near the end of today's hearings on the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito, his wife walked out of the room in tears after hearing a steady stream of personal attacks by Senate Democrats (primarily Sen. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) and Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)) on the character of her husband. Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) apologized to Alito for the way the Democrats treated him and stated the obvious: Alito is a decent man and is not a closet bigot.

Democrats have shown that they are more interested in partisan personal and unfounded attacks than in behaving decently toward a decent man and his family. I hope that the American people will take notice of how some of the Senate Democrats prefer to engage in the politics of personal destruction than in an honest investigation of Alito's fitness for the Supreme Court.
