    they will just feign indignation, and point at the Dems. The truth is, it was wholy concocted by the media in thier ultimate back-patting cleverness.
    And why would we want compare Alito to Scalia, clearly NOT regarded out of the mainstream, as a large number of Dems confirmed him?
    The truth is, he's FAR WORSE than Scalia.

      The whole reason the GOP mouthpieces are going after the "Scalito" name is that it's effective.  Only wonks care who voted for whom 20 years ago.  What matters right now is what an Alito confirmation will mean to the country, and the most effective way to get that point across is to compare him to Scalia (who IS generally regarded as one of the extreme ones on the bench).

      Put them on the defensive, and ask them why they have a problem with comparisons to Scalia.
