NYT Tells Senators to Stop Alito

The left-leaning New York Times has an editorial today that says the entire history of Samuel Alito "suggests that he holds extreme views about the expansive powers of the presidency and the limited role of Congress," but at the same time concedes that he will be the next justice appointed to the Supreme Court.

The article suggests senators are "in need of a spine" and challenges them to "fight for a principle. Even a losing battle would draw the public’s attention to the import of this nomination."

Fight for a principle? Are you kidding me? The whole reason liberals don’t like Alito in the first place is because he actually has principles.
