Senatrix Feinstein Sees A Mouse, Jumps Up On A Table, Has Acute Attack of Vapors

So, as a Reagan aide, Roberts made a joke.

Regarding a plan to encourage (women) homemakers to leave their homes and pursue careers in law, he snarked, "Some might question whether encouraging homemakers to become lawyers contributes to the common good, but I suppose that is for the judges to decide."

She's very very disturbed by this remark. She doesn't buy the rightwing White House talking-points spin that this is a typical joke about the uselessness of lawyers, and ill-wisdom of minting more of them, and believes this was a retrograde troglodytic diktat that women be kept barefoot, pregnant, and silly-slapped every time the meat loaf disappoints.

She actually interrogated Roberts about this.

If Senatrix Feinstein wants to combat misogyny, she could try, as a first step, not being such a clueless moron all the time.

That could help.

In Related News... Senatrix Feinstein supports a $20 million study by the Federal Fish & Wildlife Service to determine, conclusively, if bears do in fact shit in the woods, or if this is yet another "neocon lie."

There's a Madness To Their Method Update: In a competition between Democratic Senators' vanity and stupidity, who wins? Why you do, conservative Republicans:

Assume --correctly-- that nothing any Democratic senator can say will in any way change the dynamic that is moving towards a huge yes vote on the nomination. The only thing that can change that dynamic is (1) an explosive revelation which is nowhere in sight nor likely to appear or (2) something that Judge Roberts himself says.

Given that the only hope the left has of defeating this man who will be Chief Justice --God willing-- for 30+ years is something that he himself says, the Democrats' long winded and almost endless set-ups to their questions are in fact great favors to Roberts, allowing the judge to in effect run out the clock while not appearing to do so. The Democrats should be asking short, simple, and open-ended questions --hundreds of them-- but they cannot bear to forfeit the television time so they chew up their only hope --the time that Judge Roberts spends talking-- and their opposition is thus perfunctory.

Culled from Traffic Non-Santa's MSNBC column.
