What's Eating Diane Feinstein?

Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Wimp) said that she would vote against Sammy "The Liar" Scalito, but that she wouldn't support a filibuster.

Feinstein has a reputation of being a strong supporter of women's rights -- including their reproductive rights -- but she is on record as saying something extraordinary concerning the Alito vote before the senate:

He is clearly qualified and...I am very impressed with his abilitiy to maintain a very even demeanor during this entire thing and his ability not to specifically answer any questions.
Uh, Senator... isn't that a good reason to filibuster the dissembling asshole? The very fact that he won't come clean on Roe -- practically the only issue he was unwilling to discuss his views on -- ought to be a gigantic red flag.

So what's eating Diane Feinstein? Could it be that her husband is a big-time defense contractor?

Just asking.
