On last night’s edition of the CNN show, “Larry King Live,” CBS reporter Mike Wallace commented that the mother of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito said her son is “definitely against abortion.”  To which Wallace said: “He’s a nice Catholic boy and he doesn’t believe in abortions.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded to Wallace’s remark as follows: “We at the Catholic League like nice Catholic boys who don’t believe in abortion.  For that matter, we even like not-so-nice non-Catholic girls who don’t want to kill the kids.  What we don’t like are condescending octogenarians who don’t know when to get out of the ring.  Or when to shut up.”
