Alito Ads

Coming soon to airwaves near you. The liberal groups' ads are supposedly being unveiled on wednesday--here's hoping they turn out better than NARAL's effort in the Robert confirmation.

Also, it appears the War on Christmas is not over, despite the fact that Christmas 2005 is now over and done with:

And in Arkansas, home to two moderate Democratic senators whose votes are considered to be in play, another group, the Judicial Confirmation Network, is running Christmas-themed commercials beginning this week on African-American gospel radio stations. In them, the Rev. Bill Owens, a black pastor, urges support for Judge Alito to protect public displays of Nativity scenes and menorahs, and to uphold the right of schoolgirls to "draw pictures of our Savior, Jesus Christ, for class projects."

It will be a low moment if some senator begins asking the Supreme Court nominee about the relative merits of "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Holidays" during the hearings next week.
