Politics

Well, I’m Impressed

Traveling today, I got lots of chances to see the John Roberts’ senate confirmation hearing. I normally wouldn’t have time. But the hearing played all over Dulles airport, while I waited for my plane, and I flew jetBlue, which had satellite news on the plane.

Having lived in the Washington area off and on for more than 20 years, I’ve come to recognize political posturing, and I got a load of it today. Some of these pompous senators really crack me up. But no laughing matter: John Roberts’ speech. If he really means what he said, I’d confirm him. He impressed me. The partisans can line up around parties and politics. I never do.
