Like Tim Grieve, we were frustrated by Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's frozen countenance on the first day of his confirmation hearings. We studied him closely during the three hours-plus when senators predictably trashed him or talked him up for any small gesture -- a middle-finger nose scratch to Joe Biden, a wink to Orrin Hatch -- that would offer some window into his soul. Finally, after a careful review of our tapes, we discovered one facial expression, recorded while Sen. Ted Kennedy was speaking. (Watch closely -- it's something between a blink and an eyeroll.) What caused it, exactly? Kennedy's suggestion that Alito doesn't respect minority and reproductive rights? Or Kennedy's mispronunciation of his name?
