Let the Games Begin

This morning, President Bush nominated 3rd Circuit Court Judge Samuel Alito to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. With this nomination, President Bush has energized his conservative base with a nominee that is not only conservative, but also highly qualified for a seat on the nation's highest court.

Dubbed "Scalito" by some for his jurisprudential philosophy, Judge Alito is certain to be strongly opposed by Democrats and may bring to a head the fight over judicial nominees in the Senate.
Have no doubt, fellow conservatives, the loony left will do everything in its power to submarine the nomination of this excellent Judge in order to further weaken the President's position. This is the one we have been waiting for, so let's get to it.

First, keep an eye on NRO's Bench Memos. They have some great stuff on Alito, including supportive statements from Senate Democrats at his 1990 hearings. Next head on over to ConfirmThem for bios and reactions.

Most importantly, call Senator John Warner's office (202-224-2023) and remind him that conservative thought is not justifiable grounds for a filibuster. We must ensure that Alito receives the fair treatment deserved by such a qualified candidate.

Let's Get it On!
