Alito On The Wrack

Does anyone who worked for the Reagan Administration remember anything?

On Day 2 of his Supreme Court conformation hearings, Samuel Alito continued “wracking” his memory about when, how, why or if he may have been a member of Concerned Alumni of Princeton (CAP).

What exactly was CAP concerned about? The group was formed to keep women and minorities out of that renowned college.

My suggestion for jarring Alito’s muddled memory is to have a CIA torture specialist from one of our secret prisons “rack” him until he remembers.

Or might that be considered a conflict of interest, since he could hear a case on the issue of torture in the future?

If Alito’s lying about his CAP membership, he doesn’t deserve to be confirmed. If he honestly can’t remember being part of that organization – one that he featured on his resume – for years, do we want a Supreme Court justice who’s that scatterbrained?
