    Darn those activist judges. So I guess I was wrong. Alito may be the Sandra Day on certain issues, and Roberts is actually the evil one. Odd that he wasn't even the deciding vote (it was 6-3):

    Or am I just reading too much into this in the desparate hope that we don't go down that very scary direction we seem to be headed?

    Edit: Wonder what Ann thinks now. :p

    Again Roberts is in the minority - it still appears it is Stevens' Court (although I am not sure if he wrote the majority opinion or not).

    If Alito is in any way moderate, he will just replace O' Connor as the swing-vote on most judgements - as I said before, as long as Stevens is on the court, I do not worry about it's character altering that much - he is too skillful of a personality.

    Had to laugh when I read that Alitos' position on the Bench was "far right".

    Careful now. Wasn't he the one Ann Coulter wanted to poison?
