The Alito Files II

Another look at some of Alito's cases is found at ThinkProgress, which does consistently bang up work.

I see a theme through Alito's work. He is in favor of putting obstacles in the way of justice; so long as those obstacles aren't technically impossible to cross, they are ok. For example, in suing on racial discrimination counts, Alito would place the bar so high that companies could, in effect, discriminate all the time. He would allow them to circumvent the spirit of the law if not the letter of it.

Rush Limbaugh is overjoyed at the Alito nomination, as you might expect. And you might also guess why he's so happy.
They're going to say it; what I'm telling you is I don't want to hear any complaints about it, because, my friends, this is what we wanted. This is what we wanted. We want the Democrats to be who they are. The president's made a great pick here. Chuck Schumer, we need to give him his full-time, 24/7 cable service called the All Schumer Service, or ASS. Let Chuck Schumer be out there all the time saying what he's saying, let Ted Kennedy, the swimmer, come up for air and say what he wants to say. Let Dingy Harry say it. Let them all talk about it.
To put it another way, it pissed the Democrats off, so Rush is happy with it.
