Alito?

Word is that President Bush will nominate Samuel Altio to the Supreme Court.

He's like Scalia, only nice.

First of all, I don't know how you see Alito as "on our side." You really think a clone of Antonin Scalia is what we need on the court? Scalia and Thomas are the two worst justices on the court, they believe in the government being able to legislate morality, and are willing to overturn any precedent, regardless of the damage it would do to society. Just because there were three things in his record that make him look like he isn't a crazy reactionary conservative doesn't mean that he isn't.

I don't know what side you are on, St. Paul DFLer, but traditionally "our side" does not want cases like Roe or Casey overturned. "Our side" likes the verdict of cases like Lawrence v. Texas. Or are you confused? Would you like the government to be able to enforce laws saying that consensual oral or anal sex is illegal?

The point I was making was that Bush can't even find a woman or a minority who holds these same extreme judicial views to nominate.

Toby, none of that shit is going to happen.
He has been on the right side of civil liberties, civil rights and limited government.
He has a long record o a lot of cases and opinions. Read more than three.

Our side in the sense that we still believe inthe Constitution. The Bushies piss on it whenever its in their way of what they want. Everytime.

Having a pure Constitutionalist is nto something for Democrats to fear. We have better attorneys that can put forth the arguments to begin repealing the Patriot Act, upholding Davis-Bacon and curbing the errosion of the Fourth Amendment.

Who in the hell did you expect a Republican administration to put up?
This is the Souter we can use.
