SCOTUS is not an entitlement program

I agree with Georgia10 over at Kos.
The mantra that "a President is entitled to his nominee" will be repeated many times as Senators decide how to cast their votes . The premise stems from the notion that it is he who has a vested appointment power, and that the Senate should accord the President a high degree of deference when he makes he choice.

The man is entitled to nothing from the Congress he has abused and misled. The man is entitled to nothing from the American people he has betrayed. It is us, the citizens of this country, who are entitled to the truth. And until we receive that truth, this nominee should not pass.
The best possible outcome would be a successful filibuster, new nomination (or knowing Bush, re-nomination of scAlito), delay to 2007, Democratically controlled Senate approves an honest person to the bench.
