On Friday night Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, evidently not realizing that his words might be reported, bragged to Party activists that U.S. Supreme Court Alito was the “worst nightmare of liberal Democrats.” He was giving them a private tour of the Senate chamber, not in session at the time.
No comment from Frist himself.
When questioned, his spokeman (doesn’t anyone speak for themselves anymore?) Bob Stevenson said that Alito “is a thoughtful mainstream conservative jurist who is well respected by his peers, by Democrats and Republicans alike.”
