8. Here are the Q and A (Bush v. Gore lawsuit)
Sen. Kohl: Was the Supreme Court correct to take this case in the first place?

Alito: ****He's not answering*** ***crickets***

"I really don't know. I really haven't studied this case in the way a judge would."

Sen. Kohl: I want an opinion of the conditions of your heart. ... Were thery correct in taking the case.

Alito: There is the issue of taking the case and how they decided it as well...I really haven't studied it...

:grr:

21. Unfuckingbelievable. You'd have to be in a vegetative state
not to have heard about and developed an opinion on the case.

IMHO, they need to hold his feet to the fire on this one.

6. What a complete waste of time
This guy is apparently the blankest slate ever. :sarcasm:

Everything he has ever thought will be disregarded when he sits on the court. He can't offer any clue as to what his opinion might be. It doesn't matter what he's ever wrote or ruled. None of it.

different type of hearing. The title is the same however Judicial activism/judician restraint. I guess irony is as irony does.

29. 15 year record of troubling decisions
Here's a brief summary from this morning:

http://www.supremecourtwatch.org/insider_scoop/index.as...

<snip>
"So, up to this point, all we are left with is an unresponsive witness and a fifteen year judicial record of troubling decisions when it comes to protecting individual rights and the interests of the American people."

This is interesting though. Rehnquist is responsible for the decision of the court to take on less cases. I'm guessing Roberts will be the same way.

Pornography on the internets now=
1st amendment shouldn't cover porn, it does not contribute to public debate and degrades women. Judge what do think is it lesser valued speech?
Alito: protecting children from porn on the internets is difficult - applying laws from other medium too the internet.

43. "Row is not super precedent, just precident" means overturning is OK. what
do the RWers DuhLito cow-tows to have in it's place...NOTHING. The rich will always get reproductive medical treatment INCLUDING ABORTIONS, if it requires travel to states that retain abortion allowances after a Row defeat. These extremist Royal Families have no conscience, no concern for rape victims, for incest victims or for late term complications UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO THEM.
AND then money will solve their personal family's problems.

This guy is a better liar, however.

When Kohl asked what he meant by "traditional values" he replied that it was about protection from crime. ....bullshit.

86. Well, he's certainly
"pedalling in the sauerkraut" as the French say--Feinstein seems really to have upset his game plan. Babble, blah, babble, blah. SG

She just killed him.

He's now giving a shit answer. "...Um... if it were unworkable..."

Erm, you can't argue that w/Roe. Just the opposite,I'd say.

Did they remove the woman to his right with the shifty eyes as well as the AquaRufgfle wife to the left?

He said he did not equate wife to minor children. Diane seems pissed and totally on target.

"Searches can be carried out with out a warrant."

Diane: Wait a minute, do you remember tripartide framework...Justice Jackson...

106. Alito has always been
a contrarian. He made his name by dissenting from any majority view, even when he was the only dissenter.

He sees a red sign and says its only red on the side you see, and its probably blue undereath the red paint therefor the sign is blue. Thats his way of thinking, a dangerous extreme whacko who cannot be trusted to do whats right. He makes his opinions fit around his ideology. Dangerous.
