Oh, Those Fighting Democrats
The Guardian assures us that, as the 'battle' over John Roberts's Supreme Court nomination approaches,
Democrats on the senate judiciary committee made clear that they did not intend to give him an easy ride, and would put him on the spot over his beliefs on abortion and other polarising issues over which a Roberts court could have a decisive say in years to come.How not easy of a ride would that be? Apparently, this not easy:
"If you're confirmed, you serve not just for the remaining three years of the Bush administration, you could serve through the administrations of the next seven or eight presidents," Senator Patrick Leahy said.I dunno. To me that sounds less like 'You're in for it now, mister' and more like 'Bob, tell him what he's won!'
