John Roberts

JOHN ROBERTS….I haven’t been blogging about the John Roberts hearings, and I feel like this makes me a bad blogger. The thing is, the hearings are so obviously a Kabuki dance that I just can’t get excited about any of the details. Is there anyone who seriously thinks that Roberts will sustain any damage during the hearings or that he won’t sail through confirmation?

At this point I think it’s all for show, but I’ll open it up for comments in case someone disagrees. Can anyone provide a plausible argument that there’s even a tiny chance of Roberts not getting confirmed?
