I saw a little bit of the opening statements in the Roberts hearings today, including Senator Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) damn near weeping as he asked his fellow Senators to bring back "civility" to the questioning. This is the same Coburn who, during his campaign, warned his prospective constituents that "lesbianism is so rampant in some of the schools in Southeast Oklahoma that they'll only let one girl go to the bathroom."
If that's the sort of civility he demands, no question about Roe v. Wade should be left unasked; what could be more offensive?
Seriously, I can be civil as all hell while asking pointed questions; I expect that most of the Democratic Senators can do the same. I think what he really means is "Confirm him already because we your Republican masters said so."Posted by Linkmeister at September 12, 2005 03:46 PM | TrackBack
