Some of Judge Alito’s most fervent critics apparently fear that he is such a strong nominee that even the collective wisdom of Senate Democrats won’t be enough to come up with sounds reasons to vote against him. But help is on the way from Law Students Against Alito
. As OpinionJournal.com
notes, the group is sponsoring a contest to compile the “Top 10 Reasons Samuel Alito Is Wrong For America.”
The results will be sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee (and, of course, the media).
Another explanation for this contest is that its sponsors believe that the average law student is brighter than the average Senate Democrat. But I am witholding judgment on the accuracy of that belief until I see the results of the contest.
