I Am A Pro-Choice Pacifist Presbyterian

I mean, if Sonya Sotomayor can tell us with a straight face that she's a by-the-books jurist who's never meant a thing she's said outside of the courtroom, I don't see why I can't assert my Leftist bona fides.

My New York Cousin emails:
It's not only that she dodges every important question, but that after she's finished (and in fact while she's giving) her long stumbling bloodless and (supposedly, we're to think) academic answers.... I have no idea what she said! I commented to a friend that it's sort of like listening to someone with aphasia. A barrage of random words.

That the Senators then nod as tho they've been given an answer is a wonder in itself. Somehow Al Franken makes the vaudeville routine complete.
