From the law professor so many love-to-hate and hate-to-love: the fight over Alito has now officially begun. I have to agree with Althouse's opinion that up until now the left-wing heat has been largely unsubstantiated. But now there is real evidence of Alito's true colors.
"I am and always have been a conservative," he wrote in an attachment to the noncareer appointment form that he sent to the Presidential Personnel Office. "I am a lifelong registered Republican."...
"It has been an honor and source of personal satisfaction for me to serve in the office of the Solicitor General during President Reagan's administration and to help to advance legal positions in which I personally believe very strongly," he wrote.
"I am particularly proud of my contributions in recent cases in which the government has argued in the Supreme Court that racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion."
The fight is on. Now, hopefully we can resolve this in a peaceful manner - I'd like to see a dance off K-Fed style.
