Red-state moderate Democrat Ben Nelson is pro-Alito.
Not really surprising, but gratifying. It would be nice to see some more of the few non-insane Democrats in the Senate supporting Alito. Lieberman, for one, although he's from a blue state and might not want to piss off the base.
It was only two weeks ago that one Democrat Hill staffer declared, "Put a fork in Scalito." How quickly things change.
But maybe things can still change. I hear Ted Kennedy has information that Alito once watched a racially insensitive skit on Saturday Night Live... or at least knew someone who once wrote a satirical article.
