Liberals and AlitoBy now, many of you are aware of yesterday’s episode before the Senate Judiciary Committee in which the Democrats grilled Judge Samuel Alito about his membership in a group called the Concerned Alumni of Princeton University. If Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer are to be believed, this group wanted to exclude women and minorities from Princeton.
(All they really wanted to do was make sure there were no quotas…and if they did want to exclude women, that may not have been discriminatory at all. Perhaps they were not believers in coeducation. Some people are not. Certain liberal women seem to think the single-sex education at Wellesley College suited them quite well.)
Let us not deceive ourselves. These Senators’ problems with our future Supreme Court Justice have absolutely nothing to do with what groups he joined in association at Princeton. Their problems with Judge Alito are that he is:
A.) A practicing Catholic
B.) A pro-life practicing Catholic
C.) A conservative
The prospect of the Supreme Court having a conservative Catholic majority (Scalia, Kennedy, Roberts, Thomas, Alito) scares these people to death, especially since one of the aforementioned, namely Justice Kennedy, feels he was sold out on the Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision, and it has been rumored for many years now that he has been looking for an opportunity to reverse himself. The Left is in trouble, they know it, and they are running scared.
