From Drudge comes the day's most predictable news—The National Italian American Foundation is officially

distressed by the attempts of some senators and the media (CNN, CBS) to marginalize Judge Samuel Alito's outstanding record, by frequent reference to his Italian heritage and by the use of the nickname, "Scalito."

Humorless NAIFer A. Kenneth Ciongoli, the Geep whose very name screams out an outsider's desperate embrace of WASPy first-initial dickwaddery, goes on to insist, bizarrely, that "no one mentioned that Justice Breyer was Jewish." He finishes with a flourish of persecution envy:

In honor of the memory of the just departed Rosa Parks the Senate champions of civil rights should insist that Judge Alito be considered only on his extraordinary merits.
