Yawn, covering the SCOTUS is almost as boring as live-blogging the Antiques Roadshow. The best part of Bush's nomination of conservative justice Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court will be the reaction from the left. Where the right foamed at the mouth over Harriet Miers, the left and the media will fall to the floor in convulsions over this pick. Just for the possibility of getting to watch liberals jamming a spoon into Ted Kennedy's mouth so he won't swallow his tongue in a liberal seizure fit, I'll support this pick.
Update: Maybe this SCOTUS thing is going fun to cover
John Roberts: “So, Scott, you said that -- or the President said, repeatedly, that Harriet Miers was the best person for the job. So does that mean that Alito is sloppy seconds, or what?”
