SOTU Preview: The Alito Factor
by

Tonight, if I even remember to turn on my television, my eyes will be on Samuel Alito, the most principled and civilized high court justice (see his dissenting opinions in United States v. Stevens and Snyder v. Phelps). Alito’s calmly uttered “That’s not true” proved a far more stinging rebuke to the president than any of Willard Romney’s managementese-ridden bloviations during last year’s debates. Of course, if Alito bothered to say “That’s not true” every time Obama pinocchioed, a transcript of the State of the Union would look something like this:

The Taliban’s momentum has been broken.

(That’s not true.)

Growing industries in science and technology have twice as many openings as we have workers who can do the job.

(That’s not true.)

Most teachers work tirelessly, with modest pay, sometimes digging into their own pocket for school supplies, just to make a difference.

(That’s not true.)

And so on and so on. Ad taedium.

If Alito doesn’t turn up, count me out.
