Boyish Charms

Atrios, aka Cherubino, shows his. I have to say, if this is how the demonization act will play, it simply won't work because Alito simply never said such a thing. My preliminary thoughts on Alito are here. But Dems need to realize, squealing like a caught pig is not going to help in '06. The better move, highlight Alito's libertarian credentials, and paint him as a gay-loving bleeding heart in the judiciary hearings (which he arguably is, a little). That'll help November next. As a Democrat, I'm glad President Bush nominated a man who believes that States ought to be allowed to preserve or extend the right of marriage to any segment of its citizenry.
