Opening Arguments

Nonsense from the left and right

Concerning Supreme Court nominations, a couple of questions:

1. For President Bush: How tough is it really going to be to "take a good, long look" at a second nomination necessitated by the death of William Rehnquist, since you went through every single possibility thoroughly after Sandra Day O'Connor said she wanted to quit and before you selected John Roberts? You know whom you're going to name, so quit fooling around with us.

2. For Edward Kennedy: What planet do you live on? Do you really mean to use Hurricane Katrina to frame a question for Roberts? You said: ". . . this incredible disparity in which those people who had cars and money got out, and those who were impoverished died." How, exactly, do you think the Supreme Court should change human nature, reality as we know it and the whole history of the human race?
