Gee Wouldn't that be Terrible

Alito likely to tilt court to the right

"WASHINGTON - Samuel A. Alito Jr. did everything he could do to avoid saying how he would rule on the big issues that might come before the Supreme Court if, as now seems likely, he is confirmed by the Senate and succeeds Sandra Day O'Connor.

Yet even his cautious answers to questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee contained evidence that the court could shift to the right once the federal appellate judge takes O'Connor's seat.

Though he distanced himself from his youthful expressions of support for the conservative Concerned Alumni of Princeton and the ill-fated nomination of Robert H. Bork to the Supreme Court in 1987, Alito, 55, stood by the generally conservative opinions he has written as an appellate judge. When Democrats repeatedly sought to portray those decisions as insensitive to the rights and concerns of minorities or working-class people, Alito explained why he thought the law had required him to rule as he did.!

The court may shift to the RIGHT! That would mean by way of the process of elimination because it's already on the LEFT - where it has been firmly planted for the last 50 years or so.

Talk about BIAS! So according to the WAPO the LEFT is inherantly better than the RIGHT - I see. Thank you for the clarification. To review: LEFT = Nirvana (But didn't Kurt shoot himself?) and the RIGHT = The Devil!
