      Great editorial.  After they cite a list of stuff that "troubles" them about Alito, they recommend his confirmation because he's in "the mainstream."

      In other words, Alito is no more of a corporate toady than Scalia or Thomas.  And since Bush said that's the kind of person he was going to nominate, the Dems should roll over and confirm him.

      This is PRECISELY why we need to filibuster.  If Alito gets confirmed and, God forbid, Stevens drops dead, this argument gets thrown back in our faces again about some other hack.  "Hey, there's already 3 guys who'll never rule in favor of an individual in a case against a corporation, so go ahead and confirm another one."
