Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee



In choosing Samuel Alito to be his nominee for the Supreme Court, the president has acted predictably.

He needed to shift the focus off of the CIA leak investigation and on to something else. What better way to do that than to have an old-fashioned drawn out Washington brawl?

Today's action is the president telling the far right wing that if they whine loud enough, he will oblige. Think Progress reports that Alito is an unabashed opponent of Roe v. Wade and would vote to overturn it. He also would vote to strike down legislation passed by Congress like the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Alito appears to be the defintion of a right-wing activist judge.
