Knock on wood, but do you also sense a lack of omph in the attack by senate Democrats in the Alito hearings?

Maybe because this is, as Hugh Hewitt points out, their last stand:

“The next three days will be dramatic and revealing, a last stand of sorts by the left against the tide demanding reform of the courts that began running in this country long ago. It is a good thing that reform is not easily or quickly achieved when it comes to SCOTUS. But it would be a far worse thing if that reform was never possible. It is possible, and the mounting hysteria on the left at the prospect of a Justice Alito –a superbly qualified and humble jurist– tells us it is imminent.”
