GOP test

Fr. Rob writes that the Samuel Alito Supreme Court nomination is a test for the Republicans. Will they stand behind a nominee who’s looking more and more like a solid originalist who doesn’t see the right to privacy enshrined in the “umbras” or “penumbras” of the Constitution?

The Left is lining up its big guns, so will the Republicans stand firm and act like a party that has a majority? I hope so, but they’ve rarely done so before now.
