If you’re ever up for a SCOTUS confirmation hearing and you really want a Senator on your side of the field, quote him or her as part of a joke. Trust me, it works:

Do you agree that Casey is a super-precedent or a super stare decisis, as Judge Luttig said?

ALITO: Well, I personally would not get into categorizing precedents as super-precedents or super-duper precedents or any…

SPECTER: Did you say super-duper?

ALITO: Right.


SPECTER: Good. I like that.


ALITO: Any sort of categorization like that sort of reminds me of the size of the laundry detergent in the supermarket.
