Because he’ll sweep minorities and women under the table, along with the poor, the elderly, the disabled, mine workers, all workers, and anyone else without lots and lots of cash? Yes. Most in the know, know he will do that.
These are dastardly things. But probably even worse is this: he will crawl over hot coals to crown Bush King. He seems hell-bent on giving the Shrub the power to do anything the Shrub wants. So, if Alito climbs up onto the Supreme Court and the Shrub doesn’t like your looks, the Shrub will be able to toss you in jail and throw away the key. I’m not talking figuratively, here, I’m talking literally. [Of course Shrublet wouldn't say that's why he was pitching you into the slammer. Even Shrub has a few noodles up there in his noggin.]
Ever wonder how much Shrub would like you if you’re not Christian? Ever wonder how he feels, for example, about Wiccans? Worshippers of Thor?
“Strip-Search Sammy” Alito is, according to that august mainstream rag The New York Times,
"...an eager lieutenant in the ranks of the conservative theorists who ignore our system of checks and balances, elevating the presidency over everything else. He has expressed little enthusiasm for restrictions on presidential power…. This would be worrisome at any time, but it takes on far more significance now, when the Bush administration seems determined to use the cover of the ‘war on terror’ and presidential privilege to ignore every restraint, from the Constitution to Congressional demands for information.”
“A filibuster is a radical tool. It's easy to see why Democrats are frightened of it. But from our perspective, there are some things far more frightening. One of them is Samuel Alito on the Supreme Court.”
