Poor, poor Teddy.
Poor Ted. He brought out his A game (or what he considered his A game - the rest of the country wondered what in the heck he was even talking about - or, as Sage puts it, his "AA" game...) and Alito still got confirmed.
Samuel Anthony Alito Jr. became the nation's 110th Supreme Court justice on Tuesday, confirmed with the most partisan victory in modern history after a fierce battle over the future direction of the high court.
The Senate voted 58-42 to confirm Alito _ a former federal appellate judge, U.S. attorney, and conservative lawyer for the Reagan administration from New Jersey _ as the replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who has been a moderate swing vote on the court.
One more for the good guys.
