bush blows (it)

today on talk of the nation, timothy lewis, a liberal african american who served 7 years with samuel alito on the 3rd circuit court of appeals, said alito is honest, open-minded, and not an ideologue, tho he is conservative.

that sounds closer to o'connor than scalia to me, and normally it would be ok. but these are not normal times.

alito's vote for spousal notification in a pennsylvania abortion law took the case to the supreme court, which rejected his dissent.

abortion rights advocates are worried.

i wonder if alito learned something and changed his mind after the high court's decision.

but more important, he's male. like i said a few days ago, there's no good reason half of all appointees shouldn't be women.
