Patterico's Pontifications


This Weekend’s Posts

Filed under: Blogging Matters — Patterico @ 12:01 am

Weekday-only readers should consider clicking on these posts from the past weekend:

  • If you read only two posts from the weekend, read these two posts on potential nominee Judge Samuel Alito:

    1) I analyze Alito’s Dissent in Casey.

    2) In a post called Alito Out? I analyze [UPDATE: clearly unfounded] rumors that Sen. Specter has nixed Judge Alito’s nomination, and note an interesting reason why that might be.

Or, if all this clicking is too hard, just scroll down!

  1. — President Bush to nominate 3rd Circuit Appeals Court Judge Samuel Alito to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, sources tell CNN.

  2. NBC also going live with reports that its Alito.

    I don’t know much about him except what has been posted here. It seems like he’s going to be toxic to Dems. My guess is they could try to block him if what I’ve read is true.

    If so the battle would be joined. It is, however, a battle conservatives should be able to win. We have a majority in every branch of the federal government. Somehow I doubt he’s more “extreme” than Ginsberg – and Pubs held their noses and voted for her.

    What I’m getting to is it appears the White House got the message. It seems to understand that we wanted a highly qualified genuine conservative appointment. They’re giving it to us. In effect they’re saying; “OK. You want a high-end Con appointment? Fine, here he is. Let’s see if you can do what it takes to help us get him confirmed.”

    The game’s afoot.

  3. You were right about Alito.
    Way to go, Patterico.

  4. Aw man. I was thinking Alito was a good pick but now I see he wasn’t on Harry Reid’s list!

    “That is not one of the names that I’ve suggested to the president,” he [Reid] said. ”In fact, I’ve done the opposite. I think it would create a lot of problems.”

    Bummer. 8^)
