The big brouhaha in the SCOTUS world, other than the NH case (which looks like it'll be easy to settle among the justices), is the news that Samuel Alito Jr., the President's nominee for Sandra Day O'Connor's SCOTUS seat, worked in 1985 as part of the Reagan administration to figure out a way to abolish Roe V. Wade legally. Of course the Left is up in arms about this, but I don't really see the big deal. As a member of a Republican, pro-life administration, that would sort of be part of his objectives. And that was in 1985! Can we please look at what the man has done and written as opposed to what he tried to do?
More on this as it comes up....we're in for a fight in January (for more on this, see November archieves--"The Papists are Coming!"
