~Supreme Court Justice has a Faux Blog Spot~
The Right Honorable Samuel A. Alito, Jr.
I was surprised to find that this is not Alito's blog, but belongs to a blogger who is doing a parody of him. It is almost believable untill you read the posts and realise that A supreme court justice would probably have a little more descretion...
This just in from Alito': Put a cork in it, senator!

During his confirmation hearings, Judge Samuel Alito fielded questions on abortion, the right to privacy and Supreme Court precedent.
Over at "his" blog, meanwhile, he's been complaining about a disappointing black bean soup he had for lunch, lauding the softball questions from Republican senators and e-mailing from his BlackBerry about the "incredibly boring experience, made bearable only because of the sedative I had with breakfast."
Alito's online alter ego is Andrew Case, a New York City employee and playwright who snapped up the rights to Samuel Alito's name on Blogspot.com when the New Jersey judge was rumored to be up for nomination to the high court. With the confirmation process heading for a possible vote next week, Case has been posting pretentious, stream-of-consciousness insights several times a day, imagining the nerdy nominee mocking Democrats and secretly surfing the Web during long-winded speeches.
