déja vu

Hearkening back to the Bork confirmation hearings of 1987, many of us will remember the spectacle of Senator Kennedy -- when it was his turn to conduct the interrogation -- squinting at the notes passed to him by his young staffers and stumbling through technical legal questions he obviously didn't understand. At the time, Joe Sobran remarked that we were seeing a new kind of McCarthyism: Charlie McCarthyism.

It's contagious.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Feel no pity for Roberts. In his unguarded moments, he's shown himself to be a David Souter in the making. God Save this Honorable Court.
