PERSON OF THE WEEK - Jan. 8-14, 2006
There was absolutely no doubt about who would get the award this week. Judge Samuel Alito didn't just made the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee look like fools; he made them look like insensitive, hot-headed, whining, uncaring, race-bating elitist fools. Any normal person would have given Kennedy, Schumer, and Biden the tongue lashing of the century, but Alito remained cool as a cucumber and let it all roll off his back (although there was one point when he looked like he wanted to rip Chuck Schumer's head off). This guy has great judicial temperament, a glowing resume, and everything else you could want in a judge. I was especially impressed with the fact that Alito's first loyalty is to the law, not an ideology (whether liberal or conservative). If only our entire justice system were composed of such men.
So, for slicing, dicing, and making jullienne fries out of the everything that Democrats threw at him, Judge Samuel Alito is ConservaGlobe's Person of the Week!
Honorable/Dishonorable Mentions: Stephen Harper (Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada), Senator Lindsey Grahm, Michelle Kwan.
