Yikes, Durby gets a vote?

As noted below, the Alito hearings began today, and just when you thought you couldn't hear, to modify a Talmage quote, any more "inaccuracies so many in words so few," Senator Dick Durbin (D-Al Queda) gave his opening remarks.

While one would have to spend days to counter all of Durbies innacurracies, I would like to emphasize something he said which sums up today's liberal jurisprudence.

Basically, Durbin said that the requirement for any Supreme Court nominee is whether he or she will restrict freedom or expand it. He even said that a justice should vote to expand freedom even if there is nothing in the Constitution to support such a ruling. ---YIKES!

Sorry, Durb, the role of the justice is to follow the constitution. If the constitution allows expansion, so be it, if not, you're out of luck.

These types of comments reveal that to the left, the consitution is nothing but puddy in their hands, which can be molded to fit whatever agenda, idea or principle they think is expedient. This my friend, leads to the rule of judges, not the rule of law.

I shudder to think that a person with such a huge fundamental misunderstanding of the consitution actually gets to vote on the nominee.
