Hello? Is This Thing On?

Well, it looks like a few Democrats are going to try to mount an Alito filibuster after all.

It's been said before, but these goofs are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Evidently they somehow missed the wave of public scorn that was heaped upon them during the hearings, when even their friends in the mainstream media turned on them.

Talk about not being able to read a room. The entire Democratic Party is the Steve Carell character in "The Office." As the show's webpage describes Carell's character "Michael":
With unshaken enthusiasm, Michael believes he is the office funnyman and a fountain of business wisdom. Unaware of how he is perceived by his employees, Michael comes off alternately absurd and pathetic, but always hilarious.
The Dems so desperately want to be popular, but their tone-deaf attempts to appeal to their perceived audience only make them look more foolish and off-putting. Then they're stunned when nobody gets them, and ultimately they blame the crowd. "Hey, c'mon! What's the matter with you people? This is good stuff."

I actually hope they do try to filibuster. Only Democrats are capable of handing such huge victories to an unpopular president.
