The confirmation hearings of Judge Alito drive me insane. Bush is a pro-life president. Bush promised he would appoint pro-life judges. Bush appoints Alito. Yet, Alito can't answer the question of whether he would overturn Roe v. Wade. I loved this exchange: SEN. SCHUMER: Does the Constitution protect the right to free speech? ALITO: Certainly it does. That's in the First Amendment. SEN. SCHUMER: So why can't you answer the question of: Does the Constitution protect the right to an abortion the same way without talking about stare decisis, without talking about cases, et cetera? Unfortunately, the answer is a yawner.
