    how you change your view of health after being diagnosed with a disease.  When the scan shows it hasn't spread to the next vital organ, you now call that 'good news'.  

    I see this as an expected disaster.  Being expected doesn't make it less disastrous; being disastrous doesn't shock me.  

    This guy's views need to be exploited and dissected to the nth degree, and Democrats need to paint a very clear picture of what a perfect world looks like to people like him, Scalia, Bush, etc., and ask, 'Is this the world you want your kids to live in?  A world with no workers rights or environmental protections, a world where what benefits the few the most prevails?"

    I don't think he deserves confirmation because his views are bad for America.  But that didn't stop Congress in the past from handing Bush whatever he wanted and I can't imagine why it will now.  But I am not going to pretend it's anything less than another horrendous step towards a far worse America.

      Absolutely.  The whole problem in a simple elegant phrase.

      First things first, but not necessarily in that order.

      I agree. Sugar coating this loss is it not going to give people back their rights when they lose it.

      May the Schwartz be with you!

      I was thinking (less eloquently than you) that we were expecting Attila the Hun but were relieved and surprised to "only" get Hannibal Lector.  A more entertaining dinner companion to be sure, but the end result may be the same.
