Liveblogging the Alito hearings, in between naps.
I will be liveblogging the Alito hearings, but I also have to catch up on some episodes of America's Top Model I missed while I was travelling. Also I am tired and will nap. Be assured though I will be doing all of these things from the perspective of a constitutional law scholar.
This was a snappy comeback Alito gave to some partisan quesions from Senator Feinstein:
FEINSTEIN: And I'm just asking you would you have sustained the law...Talk to the hand, girlfriend! That will teach partisans to ask questions that touch on issues like a woman's right to her body! Women's bodies are very partisan.
ALITO: I don't think that I can give you a definitive answer to the question because that involves a case that's different from the case that came before me.
Who do you think will win in America's Top Model? April? Jenascia? Heather? I think it will be Yonnana, because she is like Alito -- nonpartisan and possessing too much integrity to answer any questions that anyone actually cares about the answers to. She and Alito also have very nice hair.
UPDATE: I never read partisan blogs. I do not want to waste my time! But this blogger is shockingly partisan. She seems to assume that Alito will overturn Roe! But we do not know that. He will not say so, so how could we know? Every reasonable person agrees with that.
Of course we do not know how a Supreme Court Justice will rule on a particular issue, nor shouldwe. This is why it would be unwise to place a bet on how, say, Antonin Scalia would rule on an issue related to abortion.
This "Hecate" person seems to know a lot about "goth" but very little about the law, or Top Models.
