The Wolf In Sheep's Clothing

There is an old Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian/who-knows-anymore saying that goes, "Vuk dlaku mjenja, ali ćud, nikada."

Literally translated, it says that a wolf sheds his fur, but never his true character (hey, once upon a time, sheep and shepherds were the shit in the old country...).

Figuratively translated, it says that Alito may be twenty years older, but he is none the wiser. And all his rhetoric about "oh, I was seeking a job [when I supported an overturn of Roe v. Wade], but now I'm a judge so my moral values are completely different" is complete bullshit.
