As noted here in November, USA TODAY's editorialists found it cutting-edge analysis to describe Judge Alito as "a dweeby version of Chief Justice John Roberts."
The paper is at it again, noting in today's edition that "Alito's suit and hair were a bit rumpled." They further found it newsworthy to note "He paused before he began testifying to take a long drink of water."
Stop the presses! Alito drinks water!
If that's the most interesting "color" the paper can come up with, perhaps USA TODAY would do better sticking with a discussion of the legal issues.
