The democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee responsible for questioning Samuel Alito, Jr. for the position of Supreme Court Justice, are so frustrated by lack of anything negative with this nominee that they now look like bitter, silly, nasty people. This good man continues to daily prove he is a man of high intellect, personal integrity, and a strong work ethic. Boy does that irritate those on the opposition side.
John Podhoretz, a political commentator, notes, "A Kennedy who has never known a moment's worry about money is now grilling a lifelong middle-class public servant with no family fortune from New Jersey about the public servant's mutual fund -- which memory serves, was and is the world's most popular mutual fund, currently serving more than 18 million investors. Kennedy, by contrast, is showered with money from his family trust. Have you no shame, Senator, at long last?".
My son is home yet again today. I expect him to make a go of it tomorrow and go to school. Monday is a no school day for MLK Day so he will have a long weekend to make up missed class work and assignments. His blood work came back good, according to the doctor, so I guess it is just one of those winter stomach bugs.
Still don't know definitively when husband will be home. Soon, just not sure when exactly. I know he is ready to get back home by now.
Planning on continuing with the hearings today. I have some things around the house to attend to during their breaks. It's a quiet day.
