Well, it seems that the public has successfully been diverted from the happenings on the Hill — namely, the Samuel Alito confirmation hearings.
According to the Washington Post,
… on this nomination, as with Roberts’s, there has been a clear disconnect between the zeal of activists and the detachment of the general public. Tim Hibbits, an Oregon-based pollster, said the Alito nomination falls low on the public’s list of priorities. “With the exception of highly energized base voters, it’s not something that’s engaged people,” he said.
This is very dangerous — even after George W. Bush is only an unhappy memory, Samuel Alito will still be on the court rolling back all the progress this nation has made in the last 50 years (or more).
It’s been shown over and over that his appointment to the court will mean the end of legalized abortion in this country. I am generally not a fan of abortion, but I am not a woman and I have absolutely no right to an opinion, really. Still, a ruling against Roe v. Wade would make women little more than a vessel for Viagra-addicted men’s use.
This is just one of many rulings that Alito has already stated an opinion on. His opinions are shocking in their backwards views.
Wake up. What we all feared is about to happen.
