ALITO: I personally would not get into categorizing precedents as super precedents, or super-duper precedents ...
SPECTER: Did you say 'super-duper'?
ALITO: Right.
SPECTER: Good, I like that.
ALITO: Any sort of categorization like that sort of reminds me of the size of laundry detergent in the supermarket. I agree with the underlying thought that when a precedent is reaffirmed, it strengthens the precedent ...
SPECTER: What about being reaffirmed 38 times?
ALITO: When a precedent is reaffirmed, each time it is reaffirmed, that is a factor that should be taken into account in making a judgment about stare decisis.
