In a rare moment of good sense, the Senate voted to shut down the Alito filibuster with a vote of 75-25. Apparently enough senators agreed that while they had political issues with Alito (a problem in itself), they saw that there was really no good reason to resort to a filibuster. Either that, or they just realized that a filibuster would make the whole party look petty and foolish. So, his confirmation is practically guarenteed. I'd say its time to do a little celebrating (I would, but the two fire alarms that went off in my building tonight put me a little behind schedule. Who knew it was possible to do so much wrong with a microwave?)
