The Robert Bork hearings were easy

Here's a story about the nomination of Judge John Roberts. And here is the text of Roberts' smile-for-the-cameras remarks.

Three things:

1) Never let it be said that George W. Bush is one to back down from a fight.

2) There will be a fight.

3) And this nomination goes to show that, in William Goldman's words, "Nobody knows nothin'." Who predicted the Roberts pick? I did a fair bit of reading leading up to this nomination and never once ran across his name.

And to all a good night.
