I contemplated watching the confirmation hearing of John Roberts today. I even tuned in for all of 30 seconds and had the misfortune to hear Ted Kennedy's voice. I quickly realised that I just don't have the stomach to watch the grandstanding and cat fighting today. I've already voiced my opinion on the way Senate has been demanding to know what Roberts thinks about this, that, and the other thing. And I'm really not in the mood to watch someone's character be beat upon for political gain. Folding my laundry is far more appealing.
