Roberts Slides Through
Judge John Roberts, in a very smooth presentation, despite the idiocy of completely unintellectual and unprincipled buffoons like Joe Biden, Dick Durbin, and Ted Kennedy is on his way to confirmation as our next chief justice. The Judiciary Committee will hear testimony from witnesses over two more days, many who will praise the Senator's qualifications, many who will express concern because he has not pledged to defend their pet political causes.
But in the end, this is a done deal. Per Schumer on O'Reilly last night, he's possibly going to vote for Roberts. But the left wing interest groups need the chance to get up and talk about "turning back the clock" and other such nonsense, which may provide just enough cover for a no vote from the entire Democratic caucus, save just a couple.
