  •  Air of inevitability? (none)
    The New York Times sunday editorial page (which many more people see) fed the "dems screwed up" narrative. Frank Rich on Specter acceding to Kennedy's demands for CAP documents: "... calling the senator's bluff and ending any remote chance the Democrats had for keeping Judge Alito off the court." William Saletan on majority US support for abortion: "Yet they've entrusted Congress and the White house to politicians who oppose legal abortion, and they haven't stopped the confirmation of John G. Roberts Jr and soon, Samuel A. Alito Jr." Then they have the gall to say in their editorial: "The White House has tried to create an air of inevitability around this nomination." That's about perfect summary of the Times-- feed the air of inevitability and then oppose him.
