Roberts (Yawn) Day 3 and 4

I could review the continuing Senate hearings on John Roberts. But anyone to the right of Chairman Mao knows the confirmation's a lock. So read some satire by Tommy at Almost Average, Bill Dyer at Beldar, Jeff at Think Sink, Hubris, Ace and the NY Times' David Brooks.


RedState links to video of the Ginsburg precedent, previously discussed. Have Democrats shown Roberts the same respect?

Still More:

Ezra Klein time travels to a future Senate hearing on Glenn Reynolds' nomination to the Supremes:
SPECTER: In Casey, the key test on following precedents moved to the extent of reliance by the people on the precedent.

And Casey had this to say in a rather earthy way: "People have ordered their thinking and living around Roe. To eliminate the issue of reliance, one would need to limit cognizable reliance to specific instances of sexual activity. For two decades of economic and social developments, people have organized intimate relationships in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event contraception should fail."

That's the joint opinion; rather earthy in its context. Would you agree with that?


SPECTER: Excuse me? Could you elaborate?

More x 3:

Think Sink:
Gentlemen, we have a problem. Senator Kennedy has not been seen for over 24 hours. A fire in the Senator's office has destroyed the entire liquor cabinet.
And no one expects the Democrat Inquisition, 'cept Hatless in Hattiesburg and EitherOr.

David Brooks was really funny. I didn't know he had it in him.

> on Glenn Reynolds' nomination to the Supremes

I dunno. I'd place a low probability on this one for one reason:

I don't think he can hold the *high* notes on "Stop! In the Name of Love..."
