Postie Dana Milbank, typically no friend of Bush or his allies in his critical portraits of Washington goings-on, noted the Senators’ tendency to soliloquies. And then there was Russ Feingold, apparently fresh from reading the Village Voice, questioning Judge Alito’s integrity and honesty without a shred of evidence.
