Strip Search Sammy is a Borklette

For any Senator who is still laboring under any uncertainty about Strip Search Sammy Alito, read this from the WaPo:

Proving His Mettle in the Reagan Justice Dept.

His opinion of Robert Bork?

"I think he was one of the most outstanding nominees of this century," Alito told Michael Aron of NJN News's "Front Page New Jersey" in a little-noticed 1988 interview. "He is a man of unequaled ability, understanding of constitutional history, someone who had thought deeply throughout his entire life about constitutional issues and about the Supreme Court and the role it ought to play in American society."

A fellow Republican describes Alito thusly:

"He's a Borklette, a Bork without the edge," said Bruce Fein, who was associate deputy attorney general in the Reagan Justice Department.

Here's the link to the 1988 interviewo of Alito from a New Jersey television public affairs program: Alito Comments from 1988

Let's see whether our Democratic Senators have a spine.
