That convenient White House anonymous source reared its ugly head on page one of today's New York Times referring to the recent demeanor of Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito.
The Times' source leads us to believe the rehearsals for Alito's upcoming confirmation hearings aren't going well, because, you know he doesn't possess a polished public persona. Voila! Alito isn't coming across as cuddly and well-spoken as John Roberts, therefore, his rough edges are spun to be that of the "everyman"
"He will have a couple hairs out of place," one participant said. "I am not sure his glasses fit his facial features. He might not wear the right color tie. He won't be tanned. He will look like he is from New Jersey, because he is. That is a very useful look, because it is a natural look. He's able to go toe-to-toe with senators, and at the same time he could be your son's Little League coach."
Little League coach? C'mon!
It's ironic that the White House is trying to paint this picture of a harmless egghead when his record is, in fact, littered with a hostility towards women and signifies the increased liklihood that Roe vs. Wade could be overturned within this generation.
The Times' story also suggests the possiblilty that Alito may mouth off to Democratic senators. Such an outburst or rant could become fodder for 20-second soundbites and rally female liberal groups. This "New Jerseyan" predilication to fight is somewhat foreign to the West Coast, unless Alito plans to break out into Springsteen tunes on the Senate floor.
