For those interested, Mark Coffey has set up a watering hole for the nomination of Alito at Politechnical.
Bad choice in my opinion. I know the Miers treatment probably scared off a lot of good candidates – but we really needed another woman on the bench. I am not for affirmative action, but where there no woman willing to step up? You should never attempt to tackle Roe with a bunch of old white guys…
Miers did prove the right was more reactive than strategic.
Oh well, guess the rightwing punditry will have to do all the heavy lifting on this one. I have no clue who Alito is and will be withholding commentary – pro or con – until his hearings. But it looks to be another pyrrhic win in DC (we seem to swimming in them from Miers, to Libby, etc).
Enjoy the debate!
