Alito at 90 on Intrade prediction market
By Tom Smith

Anyone else notice that the Alito hearings are pretty much a non-event on the news? I think that may be because you don't want to attract attention to an event you are about to be humiliated in. Steve Bainbridge has more patience than I, which granted is not saying much. I listened to Senator Schumer yesterday, and that was enough. These guys can't even lie with dignity. This is where prediction markets come in. You can just watch the numbers, and not concern yourself too much with the sausage making process.
