OK, so the latest estimate is that Judge Alito took some 677 questions from Senators during about 18 hours of hearings. However, according to an ABC News report, Sen. Biden (D-DE) spoke for 24 minutes on Tuesday, leaving only 6 for Judge Alito. On Wednesday he spoke for about 13 minutes, as compared to 6 for Alito and on Thursday went for about 13 and a half minutes, with Alito spending about half that amount on answers.
Sen. Schumer (D-NY) took almost 23 minutes for himself on Tuesday, leaving only about 7 minutes for the good judge. On Wednesday, he talked for over 15 minutes, leaving only about 5 for Alito and finally on Thursday, bloviated for almost 20 minutes, leaving 10 minutes for Judge Alito.
Doesn’t really sound like an attempt to get at the truth or the facts, does it? Sounds more like a lot of hot air, a lot of speechifying by folks not that interested in the Judge’s views after all.
