  1. It is Official now, not just “AP” official. Bush just announced Judge Alito as the nominee.

    In other news, Senator Ted Kennedy (D – Arkham Asylum) just gave birth to a fully-formed, loudly quacking duck.

  2. Moderates and people who believe in personal rights are in big trouble. What a shame that we cannot find someone (president) to govern in the middle.

  3. I honestly think that that is an overblown concern. Aside from abortion, which I maintain is goign nowhere, Roe or no Roe, what “individual rights” are you concerned about?

  4. I hope you’re right about it being overblown, but I’m not so sure.

    Based on what I am reading and hearing, it sounds as though the right to choose could be in serious jeopardy.

    Alito would help overturn Roe v. Wade [Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, 1991]

    Alito supports unauthorized strip searches [Doe v. Groody, 2004]

    Alito would allow race-based discrimination: [Bray v. Marriott Hotels, 1997]

    Alito would allow disability-based discrimination [Nathanson v. Medical College of Pennsylvania, 1991]

    Alito would strike down the family and medical leave act [Chittister v. Department of Community and Economic Development, 2000]
