I wasn't going to weigh on in Bush's new SCOTUS nomination, but I can't resist. John Roberts demonstrated that he had both the experience and the jurisprudence for his seat, while Harriet Miers failed to do either. Alito, on the other hand, has the experience but not the jurisprudence. He is, without a doubt, out of the American mainstream, exactly the opposite of the kind of person who we need on the highest court in the land. He's a judicial activist
in the worst sense of the word.
This nomination is troubled from the very beginning. Democrats will unite to defeat this guy, and right off the bat he hasn't been presented well by the media. This is the Bush administration's feeble attempt to get back on course, but it's time to face it, Republicans...it just ain't happening.
