Bush Chooses Judge Sam Alito

Today, Monday (as I told you, lol) President Bush has nominated Judge Sam Alito to be on the Supreme Court. The Democrats already have their fangs out, while the Conservatives are happy.

Judge Alito has been on the 3rd District Court of Appeals since 1990. He has a nickname of "Scalito" and "Scalia-lite." He is a polite, reserved and even-tempered man. He is a former prosecutor and government attorney who has argued 12 cases before the Supreme Court.
