Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) displays a garish purple-and-yellow sign that
says "168 to 4." "The bottom line is very simple," he says. "We have
supported 168 judges that President Bush has sent us. We have blocked
four. All this talk of angels on the head of a pin can't equal that."
7:05 -- Downstairs, in the Mansfield Room, the Democrats are holding a
pep rally for supporters, some of whom wear T-shirts that read: "We
Confirmed 98% of Bush's Judges And All We Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt."
Pumping his pasty fist into the air, Ted Kennedy bellows, "We are not
going to be a rubber stamp for right-wing ideological judges."
