Closed Circuit to Noted Marquette Alumnus Denbo: Have you canceled your subscription yet?
Of course you haven't - Milwaukee is a one-paper town.
From the same pineapple-head led editorial staff that brought you this drooling inanity, we get this steaming pile of yak poop (emphasis mine):
Another minus is that the nomination lessens the court's diversity. O'Connor herself had expressed the desire that her successor be a woman. O'Connor seems to have grown wiser about diversity as a result of her Supreme Court experience. She came to see the virtues of having a court that looks like America - doubtless a big reason she softened her opposition to affirmative action in recent years.
In losing a woman, the court with Alito would feature seven white men, one white woman and a black man, who deserves an asterisk because he arguably does not represent the views of mainstream black America.
Perhaps Pineapplehead and his merry bunch of (sensitive, caring, new age, tolerant and pluralistic) Morons ought to run down to Washington and pelt Clarence Thomas with Oreos.
Oh, and since when has it been a requirement that a Supreme Court justice represent the views of anyone other than Thomas Jefferson, et. al.? Isn't that what Congress is for?
Oh that's right: liberals think the Supreme Court is the legislature. [sarcasm drenched in seething distain] And they must be right because they're so much smarter than all of us. [/sarcasm drenched in seething disdain]
OK we've got the stupidity. How about some disingenuousness (emphasis mine):
He was the sole justice on a 3rd Circuit panel in 1991 to regard a Pennsylvania requirement that women notify their husbands before getting an abortion as not an undue burden on access to the procedure.
Note the use of "sole justice" to portray Alito as an outsider. The problem is:
IT WAS - AS IS USUALLY THE CASE - A THREE-JUDGE PANEL, MEANING THAT ANY DISSENT BY DEFINITION WOULD BE A "SOLE" DISSENT!!!!
IT HAPPENS ALL THE F[this word redacted pursuant to KAR Rule of Style 69]G TIME!!!!!
YOU F[this word redacted pursuant to KAR Rule of Style 69]G MORONS!!!!!
