They speak of “constitutional values.”Â Every comment they’ve made so far about Alito sounds like criticism of aÂ political candidiate not a judge.Â Since they can’t find any inflammatory rhetoric in his record, they have to work doubly hard to twist his rulings into a statement on hisÂ “values.”Â The fiendÂ doesn’t even support the Family Medical Leave act!Â But this comically convolutedÂ propaganda won’t work with the general public.Â Ordinary AmericansÂ understand thatÂ the job of a judge is to uphold the law, not update it. Alito’sÂ careful jurisprudence will look very reassuring next to the hysterical rhetorical lungesÂ — “Stop Anti-Choice Alito” — of the left.Â
