scalito

It appears that President Bush is doing the reverse of what Reagan did with Robert Bork in the 80’s: by nominating a centrist judge at first, he’s polarized the conservative senators by introducing a moderate candidate that nobody would support, then introduced a candidate with extreme right wing views that will have a much easier time at it because of the last candidate’s failure.

I can’t say that I’m surprised by the nomination of Samuel Alito, though maybe I should be as it means that Bush is living up to a campaign promise.

I really should have written about Joel’s wedding instead of this.

boo!
