Milwaukee Journal Sentinel seems to say, “Alito deserves confirmation.” What it really says is “that’ll teach ya.”

A couple of conservative bloggers…

Musings of a Thoughtful Conservative and Right off the Shore

… have already expressed amazement that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote an editorial in favor of Judge Samuel Alito’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

So I went and read it.

And, cialis usa treatment it sounds less like an endorsement, then a scolding:

“He is a conservative jurist. This is what the electorate, albeit narrowly, indicated it wanted when it re-elected George W. Bush as president in 2004. There can be no reasonable claim that voters did not know this to be a likely consequence of their votes.”

They may as well have just said, “that’ll teach you to vote for the bad guys. Maybe next time, you’ll listen to us.”

The editorial goes on to say:

“Alito – and Roberts – could disappoint, of course, and renege on their own claims of open-mindedness. If they do, they will have betrayed a trust to the American people.”

Interesting.

It seems to me that if their first point is true…

“He is a conservative jurist. This is what the electorate, albeit narrowly, indicated it wanted when it re-elected George W. Bush as president in 2004.”

…then the only way John Roberts and Samuel Alito could betray “a trust to the American people” is if they DON’T vote to reverse Roe Vs. Wade.

    What really got me was the “(a)nd, barring any last-minute disqualifying revelations,…” line. Let’s see; he went through multiple confirmation hearings, including to become an appellate court judge. The ‘Rats wasted their share of the 4 days of grandstanding digging into stuff from the distant past (and not finding anything useful to their cause) because they couldn’t find any “disqualifying revelations” from his 15 years on the bench. Ergo, there ARE no “last-minute disqualifying revelations” possible.

    Perhaps they think Alito will run down the street giggling like a school girl and screaming, “stare decisis, my ass!”

    (Was that sexist? I never know.)
