Doublespeak or Cause for Concern?

Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, a Democrat, has announced he will vote against Judge Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court, saying he believes the jurist would ``tilt the scales of justice in favor of big government over the average person.'' Despite his anticipated close battle against Congresswoman Katherine Harris to keep his Senate seat, Senator Nelson's decision is hardly surprising as Democrats try to muster opposition to soon-to-be Justice Alito. But sound the alarm anyway! Perhaps. That a Democrat would complain about Big Government is noteworthy. Either Republicans have lost their way a bit (or a lot), or the honorable Senator is merely trying to save face with moderate Floridians. Common sense says that it's some of both, but when there's enough of the former to make a Democrat concerned Republicans ought to raise their eyebrows as well.
