Behold The Nominee
Samuel Alito has been nominated by President Bush to be the next Supreme Court Justice. Here is the quick lowdown on Alito:
Born in Trenton, New Jersey, Alito is 52 years old, a graduate from Princeton with a law degree from Yale. He is an appellate court judge for the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, appointed in 1990 by George H.W. Bush.
Alito has a very deep resume:
Check out the breakdown at The Supreme Court Nomination Blog for case summaries of Alito's notable opinions.
The important opinion here is his dissent in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 947 F.2d 682 (3d Cir. 1991), this is the opinion most likely to cause fireworks at his confirmation hearing. This case struck down a Pennsylvania statue requiring a married woman seeking an abortion to "sign a statement indicating that she has notified her husband of her intended abortion." Alito thought this provision should have been upheld - Chief Justice Rehnquist agreed in his dissent when the case came before the Supreme Court.
Alito has a long paper trail, and there is little doubt as to where he stands jurisprudentially. He hasn't earned the nickname 'Scalito' for nothing. This is the big confirmation fight everyone has been expecting . . .
See you at the hearings!

I have a grin from ear to ear over this Will.

Alito or Miers? No question there. So do you think she was a "rope-a-dope" canidate? Everything I've seen on paper says these two are only alike in that they are 90% water and breathe air.
Either way, I'm much, much happier.

I think we can all safely say that Bush is now forgiven.
