.- A Catholic advocacy group, called Fidelis, launched an Internet-based animated advertising campaign Jan. 9 to coincide with the confirmation hearings of Judge Samuel Alito.
The ad is designed to illustrate the heavy influence of left-wing groups over Senators on the Judiciary Committee, and shows how the agenda championed by these groups will likely dictate much of the attacks on Alito during his confirmation hearings.
Fidelis president Joseph Cella said: "I think it's important to show how many of the Senators that attack Judge Alito are working hand in glove with the leadership of far left-wing groups that have a policy agenda to protect. Rather than a real debate about the proper role of a judge, the law and the Constitution, Senators and many left-wing groups declare Alito unfit because he refuses to commit to enacting their policy preferences from the bench."
The ad is a parody of The Sound of Music's "The Lonely Goatherd" by Rodgers and Hammerstein.
