A divider, not a uniter.

Bush came into office claiming to be a uniter, not a divider.

That lie was transparent from the start, though of course all of his ilk swore it was what made him great.

Well, what more evidence do we need than the most divisive supreme court nomination ever?

There were probably dozens of eligable candidates for the supreme court who would have sailed through the confirmation process essentially unopposed: which indicates they would satisfy the American people somewhat better than this extreme right ideologue.

Dozens? I can't think of one. Conservatives want a conservative, liberals want a liberal; controversy was inevitable no matter who was picked.

I probably don't like Alioto any more than you, but by what metric was his nomination more "divisive" than that of, say, Bork?
