The Alito Hearings

These hearings are completely pointless. It involves Democrats attacking Alito with empty platitudes and then attacking him for answering with empty platitude. But seriously it is the problem with the committee structure. A bill can be killed in committee with majority support. However the full Senate can't bypass this committee. Judges have no reason to be kept in committee as any questions are suitable for a full senate. Unfortunately you can't mess with the Mystique and Aura of the Senate structure.
