Only GOP Senators have minds made up on Alito?

That's the impression left by the Village Voice, the same rag that endorsed the discredited corpse-pimping Mother Moonbat Cindy She-hag for President. But I digress. Anywho, on to VV:
In the first hours of Samuel Alito's Senate confirmation hearings on Monday, Judiciary Committee member Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator from South Carolina, may very well have irreparably compromised himself.
At the hearing, Graham told Alito, nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, that he had already decided in Alito's favor. "I don't know what kind of vote you're going to get, but you'll make it through. It's possible you could talk me out of voting for you, but I doubt it. So I won't even try to challenge you along those lines."

That certainly ought to be the case. Graham is one of a group of Republicans who have been coaching Alito behind the scenes.


The coaching session for Alito has raised a few eyebrows.
Oh, no! Raised eyebrows? Whose eyebrows? Leftwing thinktank eyebrows:
"Coaching a judicial nominee behind-the-scenes is not the proper role for a Judiciary Committee member who must subsequently sit in judgment on that nominee," writes Think Progress, a project of the American Progress Action Fund. "It could be a violation of the ethical duties of a senator."
Presumably, drowning a woman in the Chappaquiddick River would also violate, among other things, "ethical duties of a senator" would think! Finally:
If this is true, how can Graham make an impartial decision about Alito based on what he learns at the Alito hearings? Graham has already made up his mind.
Apparently, this fishwrap finds it reprehensible that Graham has his mind made up. Are to we to infer that the fishwrap honestly thinks that Kennedrunk, Durbin the Turban, Schmuck "Identity Thief" Schumer, and Joe "Mr. Plagiarism" Biden do not have their minds made up?

But like I said: this rag thinks that She-hag is all that and a tall latté with organic skim milk and Sugar in the Raw!
