Alito is Catholic - he would join 4 other Catholics on the bench.

But, keep up the theory!

denomination isn't important so long as the evangelical line is towed.

Alito does this.

hence, his papist Mary-worshipping is acceptable.

Okaayyy... but it still remains a fact that he was on the top 3 choice picks for Evangelical Christian groups - regardless of his catholocism, or anyone's catholocism for that matter. It's quite obvious what their influence is on Bush.

yes, the politicized evangelicals like Dobson and CWA seem to be quite happy with the catholic Scalia.

Justice Kennedy is a Catholic.

we have a catholic majority on the court -- pending his confirmation, there will be 5.

it's awfully white, though, isn't it?

and male.

I guess qualifications are no longer important if you can try and derail a nomination with shots at race, sex or religion.

Who cares? I think their qualifications and experience matter a lot more than traits (i.e. gender, skin colour) that they didn't even choose.

Glad to see my predictions are coming true.....

An excellent choice! I rather liked the first one, but this one will do nicely.

I wonder though, will there be a revolt in the street when he is confirmed.

He is Catholic...giving them the majority of the court....awful.
He is white....fuck that man....can't have a white.
He is straight....by golly, there are not enough gays on the court...
He is male...holy shite...can't have that.

God forbid he be a decent judge...someone Ted Kennedy himself had VERY high PRAISE for. Oh wait, he is biased....he is Catholic.

I wanted the woman....
