Even the uber liberal Wisconsin State Journal gets, what the Star Tribune refuses to admit. That Judge Sam Alito deserves to become Justice Alito.
"...we are impressed that the American Bar Association gave you its highest rating for integrity, professional competence and temperament. We are equally impressed that judges of both Republican and Democratic political views at last week's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing described you as "even-handed," "open- minded," and "intellectually honest."
The State Journal is intellectually honest enough to admit it. Judge Alito is qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. Oh to be certain, they discuss the issues where the disagree with Judge Alito but that is to be expected. What is not to be expected or accepted is a "independent" press that parrots either party line. The editors of the Star Tribune would be wise to follow in the steps of the Wisconsin State Journal.
