Wait, isn't it unconstitutional for Senator Kennedy, as a U.S. Senator, to refer to us as "one nation under God"?

You know, your Chris Rock quote signature could be deemed, well, never mind.

he is rather insufferable, get over yourself Chuck

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...200916_pf.html

"Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) made 49 first-person references in a 10-minute statement that was, ostensibly, not about himself."

For a minute I thought Senator Coburn was talking about FYM

i voted for chuck schumer the last time he was up for re-election because for the most part he shyed away from the national spotlight and enhancing his own political career and concentrated on actually :gasp: helping the people of new york.

i see those days are gone.

he's now just another ideological douche who cares only about advancing his own political agenda. he's no better than hillary.

all my senators blow... please, rudy... hold off on the presidency and run for senate.

I've got one of my co-workers listening to the hearings with me and I got to tell her what "stare decisis" means.

from what i can tell, Roberts poses no threats to either privacy or Roe v Wade.

can't wait to hear the outcries from Dobson, Robertson, and Falwell. i also fully expect Brownback, Santorum, and Ivanhoe to vote against his confirmation.

oh, wait ...

I really have to say that he's handled the pressure very well. I've listened to much of today's question on the NPR stream, and he seems incredibly cool and quick on his feet. Not to mention pretty darn intelligent and well-spoken.

Maybe Dubya should hang out with him more?

Regardless of his specific stances, Roberts' appearance of being intelligent and logically consistent will likely ensure his confirmation. Considering some past Republican nominees like Scalia, Thomas, and (of course) Bork, I find it interesting that Bush *didn't* pick some hysterical fanatic like some of the people on his original short list of justices.

"Hysterical fanatic" is just how I would describe Scalia, Thomas and Bork....

It seems clear that certain members of the judiciary committee are the ones that come across as "hysterical fanatics"
