Scalito Testimony You Won't Hear
As you might recall, Senator Kennedy and Judiciary Committee Chair Specter spent some time yesterday bitch-slapping each other over Scalito's membership in CAP ("Concerned Alumni of Princeton"). CAP was a group dedicated to keeping Princeton white and male. Now it seems that an expert on the group, Stephen Dujack, will not testify at the confirmation hearings as originally scheduled:
Late last Thursday, Patrick Leahy, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued a list of witnesses to testify for the Democrats on Samuel A. Alito Jr.'s nomination to the Supreme Court. I was on that list — a mere writer with a bachelor's degree — among all the distinguished household names. But by the end of the day Friday, I wasn't on the list anymore.
Ah, the old Memory Hole. Does it seem to you as though the Democrats, save Kennedy and perhaps Schumer, have thrown in the towel?
