The Washington Post has a story about Sam Alito’s strategic recommendation, as a young Reagan lawyer, to not appeal a procedural decision in a case about the Black Panthers. I don’t know what the Post thinks is important about this; I would hope they would be sane enough to not think he’s a Black Panther based on this. For one thing, Alito was giving strategic advice; he was on the government’s side, he just thought it was unnecessary to appeal the decision. For another thing, he’s Samuel @#$% Alito! Member of Concerned Alumni of Princeton, Sam Alito? “Racial and ethnic quotas should not be allowed,” Sam Alito? I doubt he supported Martin Luther King back in the day, let alone Huey P. Newton.
