Alito Splits With Conservatives on Inmate<br><br>On veeeery little evidence, therefore, I predict that Alito will be more Catholic than Scalia: he'll vote against Roe, but also against death penalties. That's what the Roman Curia defines as doctrine, after all.<br><br>OK, take your pot shots now.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

Well, the report claimed that Alito's record on death row cases is mixed, but he seems to side with being deliberate and cautious, which is good to see. Set aside his inappropriately political rulings, the worst thing about Scalia is his brash nature. People just don't think they get a fair trial with him.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey

I think that Justice Alito is proving his critics were wrong and further that the many in left were being purely political in their opposition against him. His qualifications are immpeccable, he gets the full endorsement from the ABA, yet the likes of Schumer, Kennedy and Leahy were more concerned with foaming at the mouth and looking like asses than acknowledging his aptitude. <br><br>
I think it's foolish to deny that Supreme Court nominations are political by either the appointing body or the opposition party. Why do you think the Bush Administration and all the holdovers from the Reagan Administration worked so hard to groom and promote the two new Supreme Court Justices? Had Bush nominated someone who did not already have evidence of leanings on important conservative social issues, he would have not had any support from his political base. Remember Hariet Miers?<br><br>That's why I roll my eyes whenever I hear Republican Senators say disgustingly that Democrats didn't like Alito because they wouldn't like the way he would vote. Well, yeah. That's what judges do and Republicans played the same political game when they held back a ton of Clinton's nominees and appointed judges of their own who they believed would vote this way or that.<br><br>I'm just sick of people with no sense of irony trying to point out hypocrisy in other people.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey
