Political And Other Miscellany From A Stout Democrat In Dallas Texas.

FREUDIAN SLIP?: Does the AP's Douglass Daniel know something we don't? This article at Yahoo News may be corrected later, but right now it still says
Leahy and the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, Dick Durbin of Illinois, said Roberts' elevation to the Supreme Court called for a high standard of evaluation — higher than that when the Senate agreed to out Roberts on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in May 2003.
Meanwhile, the Bu'ushists have obviously learned nothing from their failure to ram Bolton through for the UN because they wouldn't reveal his info requests. Now they seem determined to hand over to the Democrats on a silver platter the same kind of wonderful "meta-issue" to oppose him over. Let's hope they dig their own grave with this, but be warned: more than once this administration has dug in its heels and backed down later when there was no real problem being covered up. This may be a similar trap.

    Or perhaps there is nothing to hide regarding Roberts, but the GOP is establishing a precedent for a future nominee, for example, Rehnquist's replacement, who will be so horrible that we can only imagine his/her background and document trail. Roberts is a sort of dry run, a testing of the limits.

    Or maybe it's simpler than all that. Maybe Bush just feels that crying need to plant his sharp stick in the collective Democratic eye one more time...
