No on Alito

Both Wisconsin's senators Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl opposed the nomination of Samuel Alito, Jr. to the Supreme Court today. The 10-8 vote on the Judiciary Committee, on which both Kohl and Feingold sit, fell along party lines with Republicans voting in favor.

Both of the statements they gave before voting are online. Read Feingold's here and Kohl's here.

I heartily extend a pat on the back to both of them for opposing this nominee. Keep in mind that both also voted to confirm Chief Justice John Roberts. Their vote here was out of concern for the future of the unelected branch of government, and considering the times, rightfully so.
