George W. Bush's conservative Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito began what was likely to be a contentious week of Senate confirmation hearings today..What price a competent editor? High Court Australia, Supreme Court US. At least they haven't started getting it the wrong way around. Yet.
Sounds like another fundamentalist batwing:
A staunch conservative, Mr Alito is seen by abortion rights advocates as likely to cast a vote to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling which legalized the procedure some three decades ago.As if his predecessor Sandra Day O'Connor voted to tell men which side to dress on.
