Sad, So Sad

Here are quotes pulled from Byron York's National Review piece: "It's been a very, very bad day for him," said Nan Aron, head of the Alliance for Justice. By "him," she meant Alito, who had suffered, Aron said, severe blows to his credibility. "The credibility gap that existed before the hearing has become a credibility chasm," said People for the American Way head Ralph Neas, talking to reporters outside the hearing room. "Judge Alito has a profound problem both on substance and credibility grounds," said Wade Henderson of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. I see this sort of thing often. I call it the "2+2=5 syndrome." On a larger scale, it has been known as the "Big Lie." The evidence or information is laid out for all to see, and it clearly and undoubtedly points in only one direction. However, the advocates on the losing side of the proposition will nevertheless continue to respond as though it wasn't there or, as in this case, as though it means just the opposite. The only credibility that has been compromised here is of the anti-Alito forces.
