Unauthorized Strip Searches and The Supreme Court

So I was doing a little research on this Sam Alito fellow, George Bush's newest assault on human decency, the judicial branch of our government and the American people.

At first I thought he'd be just one of those boring social conservatives that hates everyone except rich white people. With Alito being among James Dobson's three favorites, I didn't think I could expect much more. But then I saw this.

ALITO SUPPORTS UNAUTHORIZED STRIP SEARCHES: In Doe v. Groody, Alito argued that police officers had not violated constitutional rights when they strip searched a mother and her ten-year-old daughter while carrying out a search warrant that authorized only the search of a man and his home. [Doe v. Groody, 2004]

Unauthorized strip searches??????

I believe this man takes wingnuttery to a new level.

Chimpy chose to consult with James Dobson rather than Senate Democrats after Senators Harry Reid and Patrick Leahy both warned him not to nominate Alito. This could get really messy.

But the fight over this nomination will certainly detract from all of Bush's other problems, and that's probably exactly what they have in mind.

    This man is very dangerous.

    And guess what, the Libby issue took up precisely three hours of the regular news cycle before the weekend hit, and Bush was up bright and early on Monday to make sure it didn't occupy any more time in the news than absolutely necessary.

    These people are about as slippery as an eel in a bowl of snot.

    Remain vigilant.

    It's very scary to think the rat bastard knows exactly what he's doing.
