Sloppy Seconds

Can someone on my side just ask Sam Alito during the hearings how he feels about being the very public second choice for this Supreme Court vacancy? I know the senators all want to show how eriudite they are, to have some constitutional stumper that's going to have him doing a Ralph Kramden hummana hummana on live TV, but I'd really love to hear Schumer ask: "So, Judge, as we all know, President Bush originally wanted Harriet Miers for this opening on the court. She got shot down by the righwingers who thought she just wasn't a safe enough vote for their side. Let's be honest here, we all know you are a safe choice for them. I just wonder how you feel about being sloppy seconds?"
