The Debate On Roberts Continues

So far not 1 Republican Senator has expressed that he/she will oppose the nomination of Judge John G. Roberts for the appointment as Chief Justice of the United States. This being said, as of 3:30 pm on Tuesday, September 27, 2005;16 Democrats have expressed on the floor of the Senate that they are supporting the nominee. Senators Byrd, Leahy, Dodd, Pryor, Feingold, Lieberman, Kohl, Dorgan, Conrad, Johnson, Salazar, Nelson, Bingaman, Landrieu, and Baucus have openly expressed on the floor their intent to support. You will note that there are only 15 names there. CSPAN is claiming 16 Democratic supporters and only lists 15 of them. Conspiracy or oversight? CSPAN in my opinion leans a little left anyway. Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island is a moron. A flaming ACLU supporting liberal. From his first words this afternoon, it was obvious that he believes that the Constitution is a living document. He immediately used the words "uphold the 'spirit' of the Constitution". How can a state be ignorant enough to elect an individual to the United States Senate who cannot even speak English. This guy adds "R's" to all words ending in vowels. Idea to him is idear. I hate that. But I digress. So in short, at the present time the nominee has 66 votes in the affirmative with the vote scheduled for 11:30 am on Thursday.
