Okay, now I remember reading in (and commenting on) another blog (perhaps you remember me mentioning it here, The Lobby?) that by confirming Alito “We might as well have put the Religious Right and the head of every corporation up on that court.”
Well, it appears that, at least in his first step, he got off on the left foot. I suppose he won’t ALWAYS be a lap dog for the conservatives. But then again, I don’t remember a justice whoever did everything that was expected of them, fufilling some sort of litmus test, except, perhaps, Ruth Bader Ginsberg. But then again, it isn’t a litmus test if it is from the left, now is it?
