Interesting Development

If the editors of the Los Angeles Times are telling Democrats to confirm Roberts, our favorite liberal senators have a bit of a problem on their hands.

As last week's confirmation hearings made clear, Roberts is an exceptionally qualified nominee, well within the mainstream of American legal thought, who deserves broad bipartisan support. If a majority of Democrats in the Senate vote against Roberts, they will reveal themselves as nothing more than self-defeating obstructionists.

Senator Feinstein and the like, please take a hint from your media allies and confirm the man. You don't want the LA Times turning on you now, do you?

It would appear that Fred writes with a lisp, so let's not be too harsh on the poor fellow...
