Re: The Case Against Alito
Truly a fly-weight piece even for The Nation.
The senators who wish to hang Alito for the comments made 20 years ago on a job application should be careful, someone might trot out something from they long past, say what they've promised to their constituencies let alone their biographies, submitted lists of accomplishments and wasn't the Hon. Biden that had problems with petty plagerism?
Oh, and the guilt by association by membership in that club in Princeton ... didn't the SCOTUS rule against that notion over 100 years ago? You'd think that Senators who pride themselves on making history would have the decency to read it.
If what we have seen in the press is the worst that they can do, Alito must be quite a man indeed.
They're looking a bit hypocritical considering that it wasn't that long ago that some of these same senators actually voted for his confirmation to the appeals court.
That's not politics, it's called HISTORY.
