I’m Really Not Liking This Guy

by at 9:54 pm.

AMERICAblog finds this tidbit. Apparently, our new nominee, Sc-Alito, helped draft the Reagan-era discrimination against people with AIDs. I am not kidding.

Let’s see what else the lefty blogosphere has found…

He pulled a Bush Jr in Vietnam. He got into the Guard even though his draft number was low.

Alito is for the strip-searching of little 10 year old girls. You know, because they’ve all gotta be, I dunno, guilty?

Strict Constructionist = Activist Conservative.

There are charges he ruled in a case with major conflict of interest and should have recused himself.

He apparently think a machine gun in every home would be a lovely country in which to live.

This is only after one day of blogdigging, so you can imagine.

    I think this guys worthy of a filibuster… can Reid hold the caucus together?

    According to historical patterns, if we can bring this guy down, we get a closet liberal next…

    Blue Mass. Group has convinced me to hold my fire a bit. Alito doesn’t seem worthy of support but he has made some worthwhile decisions while on the bench. I think we need to see how things play out a bit.

  3. Lynne Says:

    I dunno, I still think the guy is exactly what the Right wants; exactly what this country can’t afford.

    I don’t feel I should hold fire. Hey, good, he had some good decisions. He also had some bad ones…

    However, after Reid’s gambit today, I feel so much better that no one will back down if this guy pans out the way we think he will.

  4. Andy Says:

    I agree with the last bit about Reid. I love him, he is willing to fight unlike Daschle. I am not saying I want Alito to pass, I just don’t know enough about him to dismiss him outright. I am pretty pissed at his dissent in Casey however. To think that a woman needs her husband’s permission is offensive not just to women but frankly to anyone who believes in equality.
