John Roberts Confirmation Hearing

This cracks me up. Our illustrious Senate spent the entire first day of the hearings blowing hot air. TWENTY-ONE senators felt the need to give opening statements. That's ten minutes each for a grand total of three and a half hours of Senators who like the sound of their own voices. Poor Roberts. Can you imagine sitting through that? At least his opening comment was modest and eloquent and seemed to make a good impression on everyone. And at least all the senators were talking about the need to eliminate judicial activism. Though I wonder how the current Supreme Court justices felt about all the not-so-subtle digs on their endless breaches of their limitations as judges?
