Dahlia Lithwick of Slate explains how Samuel Alito may bore his way to the bench: “Anyone can manage to be boring on boring subjects; Alito has seemingly perfected the art of being boring on controversial ones. Executive power in wartime? Boring. His deeply felt passion for Robert Bork? Boring. His incendiary job application from 1985? So boring that he’s actually forgotten it. His resistance to the constitutional principle of one man, one vote? It was based on some stuff his dad told him. He doesn’t fight to defend these ideas, he just slumps even lower in his chair and looks more earnest.”
