The United States Senate - World's Largest Un-tapped Source Of Natural Gas!

Damn, no matter which party they're from, those Senators love the sound of their own voices. Captain's Quarters is live blogging the Alito hearings. Of course my favorite bloated bloviator is Senator Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy, children's book author extraordinaire. A snipet from the Captain's blog:
12:38 - Kennedy takes the microphone. He starts off by applauding Alito's life story. "Will a nominee uphold ... equal justice under the law?" Again with O'Connor; "even one justice can advance or reverse the progress of our journey." Alito's record "troubles me deeply"; Alito's support for an "all-powerful presidency" is "deeply troubling". Kennedy continues to proclaim (erroneously) that the President spies on "American citizens". He not only misstates the crime, he misstates the purported victims.

12:44 - "In an era when more people are losing their jobs..." What? Has he not gotten the employment stats in the last three years or so? Does Kennedy even pay attention to hard data any longer?

12:45 - Judge "Alioto". Okay. Go back and play with Splash, Senator.
All the old familiar liberal slander: elitist! racist! supporter of unlimited executive power! Ye gods, what a dumb-ass. Oh, Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment on Senator Kennedy's statement.

Michelle Malkin has a good round-up (as usual) of Kennedy's tripe and the other hoots and hollars here and here.

Much overlooked is American ingenuity; All we have to do is witness hearings on judicial appointments and the energy problems of New England become clear. Kennedy and Leahy waste more natural gas than the area could use in one season. To think that they've been sitting on it proves how the area could profit fith a few more refineeries..
