Have Dem Senators Gone Too Far With Alito?

From the Associated Press via Yahoo!News:
WASHINGTON - Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito came under aggressive questioning Wednesday from Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who accused him of inconsistencies on issues ranging from voting rights to ethics to his membership in a conservative organization.
I would like to warn Senators Kennedy, Leahy, Biden, and Feinstein, who are conducting this interrogation, that they are subject to the McCain "torture" Amendment regarding "...PERSONS UNDER CUSTODY OR CONTROL OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, to wit:
(a) IN GENERAL.--No individual in the custody or under the physical control of the United States Government, regardless of nationality or physical location, shall be subject to cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment.
Don't you cross that line! I'll call Amnesty International!
