LA Times Analysis of Alito...

And a similar one in the New York Times.

What do y'all make of this? MSM covering fire?

My first question is, then why are rightwing groups so thrilled?

I might point out that the LA Times claimed that the Does were "patted down" -- Paul, where'd you find the other, more intrusive version?

I've come to no conclusions; just bringing this to our attention. Of course, he'd be displayed as not extreme -- what else? However, the question is, despite the propaganda, is he actually not extreme? I'm inclined to think not -- I thought Roberts was quite extreme, especially and most importantly in his nearly unchecked view of executive power.

I guess the thing is, Alito and Roberts are Trojan horses. My question is, who are the Trojans: progressives or Bush's far-right base? Who's the mark?

Allen, feel free to chime in: are you for Alito, given your strong views on abortion, et al.

What the right is saying, according to NARAL. Feel free to challenge the validity or selectivity of these quotes, but just saying "It's NARAL" won't do.

What's up on the ground, as per NARAL. Challenges will have to be to information given, not provenance.

Check it out, y'all.

Check the majority opinion in the Doe vs. Groody decision.. Alito's opinion is the dissent. Bottom of 1st column, p. 4. top of page, p. 6.
