WASHINGTON -- Samuel Alito dodged through his Senate hearings this week. I watched some of it, and this guy is bad news.
He wouldn't even rule out that the President could legally order someone murdered. Alito is a soldier for extreme police-state like views and tactics. This isn't just about abortion, but everything.
With our American civil liberties under assault by big government and corporations, for the good of the nation we must keep Alito's anti-public interest zealotry off the Supreme Court.
I even called Sen. Kyl's office today to urge a no vote, but I don't expect he'll vote no. Kyl and Alito are like peas in a pod. But Arizonans should hassle him on this, and McCain too. Very likely they'll both vote yes along GOP party lines, just like they both usually do.
Why can't we get any real moderates for this critical appointment? That damn Bush far right ideaology. Only 3 more years. Wack.
The US Senate must find a way to boot Alito. Dems should block and shut down the Senate if they have to.
Justice O'Connor, the Arizonan, should withdraw her resignation, and stick around until 09. Please. I wish.
