John Kerry: sing it from the rooftops!

John Kerry is trying to sink the Alito nomination.Some may accuse him of pandering by taking a stand only after confirmation was a done deal, but that is neither here nor there. Here is the main point
No one will be able to say, in five to ten years, that they are surprised by the decisions Judge Alito makes from the bench. They know that in his fifteen years on the Third Circuit, Judge Alito has almost never voted in favor of African-American plaintiffs in employment discrimination cases. They know that he routinely defers to government invasions into personal privacy, often going out of his way to excuse unlawful government actions. And they know that the only statement he has ever made regarding a woman's right to privacy is that she does not have one.
At least they are no longer implying he is a racist, they are stating it up front. I can at least respect the candor. What's more, he didn't bring up "mainstream" once, which is a breath of fresh error. Now for the funny parts
I know better than anyone that elections have consequences and that the President has every right to nominate whomever he chooses to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor...I am convinced that Judge Alito is the wrong choice for America. In fact, I am convinced that he is a dangerous choice for America.
He understands that election matter, indeed. All too well.
