Yeah, Thanks a Lot Dobson

How do you thank someone who's worked hard to make sure you get put onto the Supreme Court? Someone who worked that hard because he believes you're going to vote to overturn RvWade and sit in the lap of psycho right wing conservatives?

You write him a letter, of course. And here's the letter from Alito to Focus on the Family founder James Dobson (who read it to his faithful):

Dear Dr. Dobson:

This is just a short note to express my heartfelt thanks to you and the entire staff of Focus on the Family for your help and support during the past few challenging months. I would also greatly appreciate it if you would convey my appreciation to the good people from all parts of the country who wrote to tell me that they were praying for me and for my family during this period. As I said when I spoke at my formal investiture at the White House last week, the prayers of so many people from around the country were a palpable and powerful force.

As long as I serve on the Supreme Court I will keep in mind the trust that has been placed in me. I hope that we will have the opportunity to meet personally at some point in the future. In the meantime my entire family and I hope that you and the Focus on the Family staff know how much we appreciate all that you have done.

Sincerely yours,
Samuel Alito
