One thing we can count on: If Alexi Giannoulias is elected Illinois' senator, he can be counted on to be the Democratic Party's lickspittle. Just hours after President Barack Obama announced his nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, Giannoulias came out with a full-throated endorsement.
Well first of all, one would hope that senators would give more than six hours consideration to the nomination before they render a judgment.
Was he talking about Giannoulias? No, of course not; he was talking about those nasty Republicans. Specifically, Sen. Jim Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma, who said he opposed her because of her lack of judicial experience, her record and her "interpretation" of the Constitution.
