Multiple sources are telling RedState that Samuel A. Alito Jr. of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals will be named by the President as the next associate justice of the United States Supreme Court as early as Monday.

Judge Alito would energize the President's conservative supporters. But he would not be as much of a fight as the others. ... Judge Alito will be grudgingly confirmable to many Democrats once they look at his record.

THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT. I know this wasn't you're decision any more than it was mine ... but guess what, we're going to STICK TOGETHER just like always!! Its a pleasure to serve you sir, now and always. I'll never forget being the Nominee, it was a learning experience at the very least. Always remember. Follow you're heart. Love, Harriet Miers

From the parody blog site Harriet Miers' Blog ( harrietmiers.blogspot.com )

It is increasingly clear that the American people – most importantly, the families of the brave men and women serving in Iraq – can no longer tolerate George W. Bush's failure to spell out an honest, reasonable, and detailed plan of action on Iraq. If the President refuses to act, we must call on Congress to take the decision out of his hands.

John Kerry is a political coward who waited until the war polls tipped over the 50 percent mark before he dared utter a word. Wow. What a bold move.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
