Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for December 03, 2005
news of the times supreme court nominee sending mixed messages supreme court nominee samuel alito shocked onlookers when he arrived at a meeting with senator ted kennedy (d. mass.) with the words "i will overturn roe v. wade" prominently tattooed on his face. sam: what do you think of the new tat? totally radical, right? i will overturn roe v. wade after the meeting, alito issued a statement. sam: this tattoo, which was etched onto my face hours ago and still hurts like the dickens, was a youthful indiscretion, and does not represent my current views. sen. kennedy seemed satisfied with the explanation. kennedy: he assured me that he thinks of roe v. wade as super-precedent, and the message on his face is... facetious! republicans bristled at criticism. republican: I suppose democrats have some litmus test of what sort of tattoo a supreme court nominee should have on his face. but alito quickly disavowed the tattoo that was revealed when a picture of him at a conservative conference in scottsdale, ariz., surfaced. sam: this i had nothing to do with! i got drunk in oaktown and woke up with it. i'm not kidding! roe v. wade is gone when i'm on the supreme ct.! don't believe me when i disavow this.
