Commonweal on the state of the question
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jan 25, 2006
These are real tough days to be a Vatican III Catholic. Conventional ammunition is in such short supply that the editors of Commonweal, baffled in their attempt to find a substantive and intelligible reason to denounce the Sam Alito Supreme Court nomination, were forced to shame his supporters into silence by resort to the ultimate weapon.
Those like Alito who deplored the excesses of the antiwar, women's, and civil-rights movements were also among the last to concede that President Richard Nixon authorized the burglary of his political opponents' headquarters and then lied about it.
Take that, Federalist Society partakers of communion on the tongue!
