Quick Note

From this article in the Washington Post:

Alito Downplays '85 Comments

Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito distanced himself Tuesday from his 1985 comments that there was no constitutional right to abortion, telling a senator in private that he had merely been "an advocate seeking a job."

I thought to myself, "isn't he seeking a job now?"
But he said:

"I was an advocate seeking a job, it was a political job and that was 1985. I’m now a judge, I’ve been on the circuit court for 15 years and it’s very different. I’m not an advocate, I don’t give heed to my personal views, what I do is interpret the law."

Lies, lies, lies. More later.
