Alito Opposes Mo. Execution

Newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Alito voted a stay of execution for a Missouri death row inmate today. Considering what a hard-line conservative he was treated as by our left-leaning brethren in the media and on the Hill, I hope this will be an object lesson for people considering appointees for high-court. Yes, many people can not overcome personal bias, but we need justices who will calmly consider the merits of each case put before them, rather than always falling back on pat conclusions they have reached previously. I think Alito demonstrated that he is going to judge on a case-by-case basis, and if it's not being too self referential, my January 25 post has been validated. Again, I call the mean-spirited hypocrites who opposed his appointment a big bunch of whiny bitches.
