Jeanne Stacks is certainly
up on the Democratic Party talking points regarding Judge Samuel
Alito. Too bad she’s so out of touch with what people in the know
think of him.
she thinks he’ll "set our country back 100 years", maybe she should
ask the Democrat-controlled Senate that confirmed him, 98-0, to
the Third Circuit of Appeals back in 1990. That Senate included
Harry Reid and Ted Kennedy.
she could ask legal scholar Cass Sunstein, well-known for his support
of a "living" Constitution and author of Radicals in Robes: Why
Extreme Right-Wing Courts Are Wrong For America, who on
Tuesday said that he was "solid, more than competent, unfailingly
respectful, and plausible," and that he writes opinions that are
"firmly anchored in the law".
is a fine selection, and everyone who knows anything about him and
the legal profession seem to agree.
