The Alito 3-Step

Froomkin (brother of WaPo Froomkin) set out the basic problems with Alito:

Roe/women's issues, "he'll say anything to get a job," and life-long spear-carrier for the imperial presidency.

But, basically, the guy has said Roe should be overturned and more generally he, as Lord Saletan says, treats "women like girls" under the parental control of their husbands. He's an admitted liar - says he lies to get jobs and he lied to the Senate on other issues. And this "highly qualified judge" seems to have missed the revolutionary war and the constitution.
