Can We Be Decent About This, Please?



Text  



Reporters digging through Roberts adoption records is similar to the same kind of unfair, intrusive, irrelevant nonsense that surrounded the Bill Pryor nomination–the Disney Smear and the Miguel Estrada nomination–he’s not Hispanic enough (what does that even mean?).

They’re Estrada-ing Roberts already–using his wife and his children if that’s what it takes.

Nevermind decency. Let’s talk shop. Dems: You better condemn that line of inquiry, and fast. 2006 is election year, and don’t play with the kids. On a Supreme Court nomination? People aren’t going to miss that.
