Just in case Deborah Howell’s opinion piece left a doubt in anyone’s mind about the prevailing political bent of the WaPo, here is today’s editorial on the Alito confirmation:

Judge Alito is superbly qualified. His record on the bench is that of a thoughtful conservative, not a raging ideologue. He pays careful attention to the record and doesn’t reach for the political outcomes he desires. His colleagues of all stripes speak highly of him. His integrity, notwithstanding efforts to smear him, remains unimpeached.

Goober Graham tees up the wife and knocks one right over the heads of the WaPo editors.

He didn’t need to aim particularly high.
