At Least He's Not All Bad

I still don't want him anywhere near the Supreme Court, but finding out this little nugget about Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito made me at least a little less hostile to him:

In 1964, the Philadelphia Phillies and star pitcher Jim Bunning dashed 14-year-old Samuel Alito's pennant hopes. Forty-one years later, Bunning can make it up to him.

Bunning, now a Republican senator from Kentucky, ran into the Supreme Court nominee in a Capitol bathroom last week.

Alito grew up rooting for the Hall of Famer in New Jersey, and had no problem speaking his mind about the Phillies' epic collapse.

"This jurist is probably the biggest Phillies fan in the world. He proceeded to tell me about the 1964 season and how we blew the pennant," Bunning said Tuesday.

Actually, Bunning doesn't need to make it up to him. The 1980 team already did that for him.
