Who is Judge Samuel Alito?
Guest: Professor Jamin Raskin of American University
As I predicted, after Harriet Miers, Bush moved to the Hard Right-Wing, nominating Scalia clone Judge Samuel Alito (nicknamed “Scalito”) to the United States Supreme Court.
Unlike Chief Justice Roberts – a close case I agreed to support – or the unqualified crony Harriet Miers, who I did not, if Scalito is true to his nickname, there is only one option: FILIBUSTER!
If he threatens to be another Scalia, all stops must be pulled to prevent such an extremist from trying to exercise power over our private lives.
Maybe only then will Bush pick a Republican nominee that both parties can respect.
