It's Alito

As many have already expected, the President has now nominated Samuel Alito to the SCOTUS.

SCOTUSblog has background info on Alito, including some of his notable opinions.


So what's the reaction?

Michelle Malkin, who was firmly against Miers says, "Experienced. Well-thought-of by conservative constitutional scholars. Not a diversity/crony pick. Young. This is a nominee the Right can get behind."

The commenters at DailyKos are eager for a fight:
"We've gotta find a way to scorch the wrongwing on this."
"I'm cynical as hell about this, but I would hope the Dems in power would grow a spine and fight this to the best of their abilities."
"I hate these neocon republicans, but if democrats let this vote pass, they are worse than the republicans. "

The likely angle the Dems will use agains Alito? According to Patterico:

If Judge Alito is nominated, the primary Democrat talking point is going to be his dissent in the case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 947 F.2d 682 (3d Cir. 1991). In that case, Judge Alito wrote a cogent dissent which argued for the validity of a law requiring spousal notification before an abortion.



UPDATES:

It looks like Alito maybe an enemy of trial lawyers.
