WaPo: Confirm Samuel Alito

The Washington Post has come out in favor of the confirmation of Judge Alito to the Supreme Court. Although he would not have been their choice,
Judge Alito should be confirmed, both because of his positive qualities as an appellate judge and because of the dangerous precedent his rejection would set.
The tactics of the Dems are described as "smear" tactics.

He is exactly the type of Justice President Bush promised to appoint durring the last election cycle. And since Bush won the election his choice, in the words of the Post, "is due deference."

Yes, the court will become more conservative. But we have a conservative President, a Republican controlled Senate and a Republican controlled House of Representatives. To say that a conservative Justice is "out of step" with the country (or whatever the Dems were saying) is just denial on the part of the Democrats.
