  •  That's not what "Scalito" implies (none)
      Not at all.  It means "little Scalia," the diminutive form of Scalia, if you will.  It means that they have the same ideological underpinnings, nothing more.  It has nothing to do with his ethnicity.  It's a comparison of ideology, which is more than fair game.  The Dems didn't even make up this nickname!  The Republicans tried to do this before, when they discovered that the "nuclear option" meme was hurting their cause.  Of course, it was Trent Lott and not a demcorat who invented the phrase.  Not that it matters anyway.  If the
    Dems want to enagage in name calling, they can call Alito an radical right-wing ideologue.  I encourage them to do so.  How else would we fight the right wing slime machine?  Certainly not with logic and knowledge.  Hahahaha.  Oh, Politics.
