Damn, Bushie–rush much?
From The Washington Post:
President Bush today named appeals court Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. to the U.S. Supreme Court. Alito, 55, serves on the Philadelphia-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, where his record on abortion rights and church-state issues has been widely applauded by conservatives and criticized by liberals.
Alito, appointed to the appeals court in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush, has been a regular for years on the White House’s short list for the high court. He was also among those proposed by conservative intellectuals as an alternative to Harriet Miers, the White House counsel who withdrew as the nominee last week.
Sounds like a real winner.
By the way, how did folks feel about this Oct. 28th NY Times headline: Bush Is Not Expected to Feel Need to Pick Woman Again? Cause it pissed me the fuck off.
