So SCOTUS nom Samuel Alito wrote in a job application that he was "proud" to have contributed to court cases arguing "that racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion." This is does not concern us so much as does the White House feigning surprise at the discovery. What's going on with the background checks over there, Karl? Also disturbing is the administration's insistence that whatever we think about Alito, one shouldn't go around believing what he says: "Anybody who would read this letter from 20 years ago as an indication that he would overturn Roe v. Wade is jumping to conclusions." Right. Wait until he chains himself to an abortion clinic, then you can talk.
