Bush picks an "activist"?

Bush and conservatives go to great lengths to decry "activist" judges. So who does Bush pick to be the next justice on the Supreme Court? A conservative... activist. So say those who know him, personally and professionally.
Lawrence Lustberg, a New Jersey criminal defense lawyer who has known Alito since 1981 and tried cases before him on the Third Circuit, describes him as "an activist conservatist judge" who is tough on crime and narrowly construes prisoners' and criminals' rights. "He's very prosecutorial from the bench. He has looked to be creative in his conservatism, which is, I think, as much a Rehnquist as a Scalia trait," Lustberg says.
As I've mentioned in previous comments, I suppose it only matters what kind of "activist" you are.
