But most importantly, the Associated Press took care to photograph a catcher's-eye view of Justice Alito's delivery, which allows baseball fans to do what we do best: compare him to his competition. And he actually fares pretty well, at least when compared with the current and former commander-in-chief. 

Of course, President Bush is a ringer. If Dubya is Cole Hamels, Alito's probably John Lannan: Hamels is an ace, Lannan has been good enough to stick around in the big leagues. 

That may not sound like much, but as President Obama knows, it could be worse. Much, much worse.
