Alito has been confirmed, 58-42.
If you are wondering why 42 people voted against but a filibuster could not be sustained, that is because of the Gang of 14. You know- the group that the far right was screaming bloody murder about a few months back and telling me I was an idiot to support. Some disaster they turned out to be- just ask the Kossacks, who are livid with Lieberman.
Adam C. gloats, as well.
