Well, Bush has gone and done what his leash-holders - er, base - on the religious right wanted him to do: nominate a justice for the SCOTUS in the mold of Scalia, a notorious ultra-conservative.
Wes at Walk in Brain asks the question that I’ve been wanting to see from everyone, most particularly from the Senate Dems: Where does Mr. Alito stand on corporate personhood and accountability?
Preserving Roe v. Wade is exceptionally important and enough to filibuster this guy’s butt any day, but the hidden danger in this cabal’s nominees is the fight against the worker and the environment and even the middle class in favor of big corporations. It’s modus operandi for these people to just give, give, give everything and the kitchen sink to their CEO buds. But I guess Roe is sexier, even post-Enron, for the media’s narrative, than the preservation of our American way of life.
So where does Mr. Alito stand when it comes to corporations?
