Once Again It's Too Little, Too Late for Kerry

In another well-timed political move, Sen. John Kerry has announced he wants a filibuster against Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito. Unfortunately, given that three Democratic senators have already announced their support for Alito (Byrd (WV) Johnson, (SD) and Nelson (NE)) and three others have announced their opposition to a filibuster (Landrieu (LA), Salazar (CO) and Feinstein(CA)), it would seem there aren’t the 41 votes needed to sustain a filibuster. This fact renders Kerry’s call meaningless at best and a brazen act of political pandering at worst.

Well-played Mr. Kerry. Well-played.
