Say no to Alito.

"“I have followed the Alito hearings closely. Democrats on the Committee did their jobs by asking tough questions about important issues: civil rights, privacy, environmental protections, the danger of unchecked presidential power and others. Unfortunately, Judge Alito’s responses did little to address my serious concerns about his 15-year judicial record. I have not forgotten that Judge Alito was only nominated after the radical right wing of the President's party forced Harriet Miers to withdraw. The right wing insisted that Justice O'Connor be replaced with a sure vote for their extreme agenda. Four days of hearings have shown that Judge Alito is no Sandra Day O'Connor." -- Senator Harry Reid

Alito is an extreme right-wing activist judge, no matter how much he tries to deny it. Period. Again, too much of anything is bad, bad, baaaaaaaaaad. A person who is stonewalling like Alito is should be automatically barred from ever being considered for nomination to the Supreme Court. The fact that he has even been considered to desecrate the judiciary wear Sandra O'Connor's robe is, first, symptomatic of a Presidential Administration bent on sheer extremism and, second, symptomatic of the half-hearted, lackluster leadership in our nation. An individual who has so little respect for civil liberties has no place on any bench, let alone the Supreme Court.
