You Know They've Got Nothing...

...When they continue to misrepresent the facts...

Alito Defended Ordering Domestic Wiretaps WASHINGTON (AP) -

"Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito defended the right of government officials to order domestic wiretaps for national security when he worked at the Reagan Justice Department, an echo of President Bush's rationale for spying on U.S. residents in the war on terror. Then an..."

Judge Alito did no such thing.

"The question Judge Alito addressed in the 1984 memorandum was whether lawsuits for money damages against government officials were the proper remedy for illegal wiretaps. The Supreme Court agreed with him 5-2 that they were not."

The AP is having a bad month, year, decade, and millenium, but that'd never stop such a lunatic fringe rag that continues to pose as a mainstream news medium. And it isn't amazing that they could be so consistently wrong, for misrepresentation is all they have to work with. Keep hammering away with false accusations and perhaps people will get and stay confused long enough for their smear campaign to work.

The Alito hearings will be fun, don't you think? Personally, I love it when Democrats prove how incredibly dumb they are and can't wait to see old Sam clean their clocks when they once again try and go up against someone who actually knows something about the law and the Constitution.
