WHY CHAFEE WILL VOTE TO CONFIRM:

MSNBC'S CHRIS MATTHEWS ON "DISGUSTING" DEMOCRAT ATTACKS ON JUDGE ALITO (RNC, 10/31/05)

MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "[I]'m Sitting Here Holding In My Hands, A Pretty Disgusting Document, This Is Put Out Not For Attribution. But It Comes From The Democrats, They're Circulating It. I Can Say That." (MSNBC's "MSNBC Live," 10/31/05)

* Matthews: "[T]hen There Complaint Sheet Against Judge Alito's Nomination. The First Thing They Nail About This Italian American Is He Failed To Win A Mob Conviction In A Trial 20 Years Ago, Or Something Way Back In '88." (MSNBC's "MSNBC Live," 10/31/05)

* Matthews: "In Other Words, They Nail Him On Not Putting Some Italian Mobsters In Jail From The [Lucchese] Family. Why Would They Bring Up This Ethnically Charged Issue As The First Item They Raise Against Judge Alito?" (MSNBC's "MSNBC Live," 10/31/05)

* Matthews: "This Is Either A Very Bad Coincidence Or Very Bad Politics. Either Way Its Gonna Hurt Them. This Document: Not Abortion Rights, Not Civil Rights But That He Failed To Nail Some Mobsters In 1988. This Is The Top Of Their List Of What They've Got Against This Guy. Amazingly Bad Politics." (MSNBC's "MSNBC Live," 10/31/05)

Matthews: "[The Democrats Are] Trying Not To Put A Signature On It, But I Just Did." (MSNBC's "MSNBC Live," 10/31/05)


Rhode Island is 63% Catholic.

Why the shock, Chris? The Dems are equal opportunity faith-haters, a point these heraings may well advertise. Feeling cozy there with your fellows?

The Dems were just waiting for the official announcement so they could unlock the storage locker labeled "Alito". Their biggest complaint against Miers was that they didn't have a year's worth of opposition research ready to turn to, except the screechers did the job for them.

Speaking of which, it seems the screechers have got the fight they've longed for, so they [expletive deleted] well better fight, and not whine and complain when McCain and his Dirty Baker's Dozen call "extraordinary circumstances" in response.

(Until McCain's little deal, I too wanted to see that fight, except I wanted to see a fight that could be won, not a fight for the sake of my self-esteem.)

You and me too, Raoul. Now we'll see if they can hold the Senate to it. If they can I'll be the first to say they were right.

Matthews and Russert are both Catholic.

ghostcrat:

Yes, and more authentically so when they they stop fronting for the faith-haters.

Sorry, that's ghostcat.

I'ma gonna go out ona limb and say thata Lucchese is also a Catholic.

So let's see the memo? Who wrote it? Why is Matthews the only who has it? This is bad journalism and/or a Republican planted story.

Opus Dei planted it. Pass it on.

The two aren't mutually exclusive, ask judith Miller.

Based on Matthews' ongoing screeds against the Bush Administration on Joe Wilson and the missus, Iraq in general and Katrina back in September, I'm sure the DNC didn't see any problem with sending Chris their talking points. In fact, they're probably scratching their heads or cursing right now that Matthews has gone crazy because he's attacking them instead of Bush.

Thank goodness Keith Olbermann promises to be a reliable shill on MSNBC tonight. He'll probably already have the music from "The Godfather" cued up for the second or third segement of his show.
