Alito and the Supreme Court.

It is very important news that the ABA has declared that Samuel Alito is competent.

Why? Because now there is no reason on earth for pompous, pretentious senators to ask him any questions whatsoever during his confirmation hearings. The President of the United States nominated him. As the Constitution states, once a president makes a nomination, senators need to agree with him. That is well known.

The ONLY issue is "competence." Ideology and the real-world results of the judge's likely decisions are out-of-bounds, and only ignorant partisans would claim otherwise.

After all, the real issue is not whether this judge is likely to make decisions that will significantly limit the rights of American citizens to their bodies, or whether this judge will dangerously concentrate power in the Executive branch to the detriment of the Constitution and traditional American democracy.

No. The only issue is whether or not he will restrict individual rights competently.

Why can't Democratic partisans understand this simple truth?

You tell 'em Anne!

The 4th Amendment is way too complicated for Democrats to understand. So the senators should not ask Alito any questions about Wire Tapping or Warrants.

Besides, Alito is such a genius that the senators would not understand his articulate answers!

The 4th Amendment and Habeus Corpus is soooo pre 9/11.

And that whole "one man, one vote" thing. It's so partisan to want to see that protected. I agree completely, Professor A.

Those who oppose should speak, in modulated tones, about who should be chosen for the next opening. It's ridiculous to try to keep Alito from getting confirmed!

The Supreme Court is the only haven of rational nonpartisanship in the government, sort of like a group of angels. The sooner we can get rid of the partisans who slipped on to the Court and replace them scholars like Alito, the better it will be for us all. Angels are so serene and divine; I like them very much. I don't like things that aren't angels.

Thank you, Ann

Right once again. It's about time we had Justices that uphold GOD's law, and I hope the partisan, anti-Christian, judeo-secular, liberal Democrats will not ask this good man any questions.

Mel

P.S. Do you have a thing for Hollywood actors?

And that whole "one man, one vote" thing.

And it should be literally "one MAN". Women shouldn't be allowed to vote, just as the Framers intended.

So true Ntodd. The Framers were wise men. Samuel Alito respects what they said, so of course the liberal partisan anti-Christian judeo-secularist Democrats are going to try to bring him down.

Certain commenters should consider themselves warned about vulgarity. Please use nonpartisan words like "teats" instead of ruder terms.

k. ron is right: The Constitutional function of the Supreme Court justices is to be like angels. Angels of nonpartisanship.

Dearest Ann Altmouse,

I wish you would link your posts to the original post that "inspired" them. (Mainly because I like to read my name in the comments)

Thank you?

Pooh, there are things I like about the blog, but there's a thread of insanity that is so Miss Jean Brodie like. I've enjoyed reading your comments over there.

quxxo - love your work.

PS Pooh, my head spin came at "Atrios' commenters are attacking me, me, meeeeeeeeeee! No, I have no time to read a brief rebuttal!"

I can't believe I was such a dork prior.

Heh. If we're going to be "originalists" let's go back to property ownership requirements.


(AA did seem to loose it around Thanksgiving, no? Well, she was overcome by those eclair demanding anti-feminists...)

quxxo, why must you be so consistently sour? Your arguments are repetitive! You need to pick up the quality of your comments.

Quxxo - welcome to the party!

(Interesting Historical Note: Women and non-white male property owners in New Jersy voted in the years 1790-1807. I think they had to own 50 pounds worth of property. They were disenfranchised, I believe, in 1807 by the State Legislature.)
