The Fifth Horseman: Bring Back Miers!

Bring Back Miers!

Sure, the woman had no judicial experience to speak of...but, at least she wasn't a Right Wing Ideologue. At least, not blatantly.

Not sot for Samuel Alito. Not by a long shot. Dubya learned from the bad Miers experience. This nomination is a blatant appeal to Dubya's Far Right Base.

Alito is bad news. And here are, courtesy of ThinkProgress.org, the reasons why:
ALITO WOULD OVERTURN ROE V. WADE
ALITO WOULD ALLOW RACE-BASED DISCRIMINATION
ALITO WOULD ALLOW DISABILITY-BASED DISCRIMINATION
ALITO WOULD STRIKE DOWN THE FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE ACT
ALITO HOSTILE TOWARD IMMIGRANTS

These are, of course, simply the headings for the ThinkProgress article. For an in-depth explanation of the headings, hit the link in the text above the quote.

Not scared yet? Well, then visit and read the articles here and here.

However, the Unofficial Award For Best Alito Freakout has to go to this entry, over at the Rude Pundit.

In a nutshell, my message is this: Samuel Alito is a bad choice. A horrid choice. Be afraid of him.

If there ever was a time for the Democrats to use the filibuster, it is now. Come on, guys. You fought like hell to keep this thing...now, it's time to use it.
