Man, Alito looked good in that robe.

Dana Milbank, who is generally not high on my list of people to read, has some notes on the applause of SCOTUS justices during the SOTU.  Interesting read, as are some of the comments from senators later on.  Here’s Chucky:

"Tonight," he said, "when the president announces to applause the fact of Judge Alito's confirmation, what he should really hear, because of the partisan nature of his choice, is the sound of one hand clapping."

Yeah, it’s hard for the right hand to clap when the left hand is permanently frozen in middle finger position.
