“Without objection, so ordered.”
The former U.S. appeals court judge will quickly be sworn in at the Supreme Court before his expected appearance at Bush’s annual State of the Union speech Tuesday evening with the White House’s other new Supreme Court judge, Chief Justice John Roberts. Alito will be ceremonially sworn in a second time at a White House East Room appearance on Wednesday.
It was an unnecessarily long, hard road. Thank you,
Judge Justice Alito, for your perseverance and grace in the midst of the sludge-throwing Senate Democrat windbags. And thanks to the principled liberals who know you and your record best for standing up in your defense.
Steve Bainbridge says the “Coalition of the Chillin'” (which defended the Gang of 14) deserves a pat on the back.
Ok. Also deserving of a pat on the back, then, is the decidedly un-chillin’ coalition of conservatives (Professor Bainbridge included) who revolted against the Harriet Miers nomination and demanded a competent pick of which we can all be proud. Kudos.
