Roberts Banks on Good Looks, Not Past Decisions

A NY Times article reports that "Court Nominee Says Early Career Is No Guide." So, should the Senate affirm Roberts because of his boyish good looks? I mean, if his past decisions are no guide to what he will do in office, then what is?

(Disclaimer: this is what one would call sarcastic. I do understand what the judge was truly saying, and though Roberts is probably not who I'd nominate were I president - hey, I really like Judge Judy - I do think he should be affirmed.)

Not sure if you've been following but you have no idea how many senators said that he should be confirmed just for his good physical appearance and health. It's all a show; he's not answering anything substantial and presidential wannabees (Biden, Brownback etc) are playing tough-guy (girl, for DiFi) so they get some airtime on the nightly news.

The whole thing is a sham. A Senator actually asked him if Congress has the right to declare war. He responded, "well the Constitution give them that power...." What was that, a test?

This is just a dog and pony show.
