"Keep it pithy..."

Someone ought to tell that to the Senators "questioning" John Roberts. Democrats and Republicans seemed more interested in hearing themselves bashing/ praising Roberts than in actually questioning him. Fox News has been running constant coverage of the Roberts hearings, so from time to time I'll check in. Not to ruin it for you, but this is most of what you'll hear:
10 - 20 minute questions consisting of Democrats asking Roberts in a million different ways "do you agree with us on abortion?"(and desperately trying to give themselves a viable reason to vote against him) and Republicans heaping praise and sounding for all the world like the RNC website. Sure, there were some real questions asked. But it sounded mostly like bloviating.
