Watching and listening to the grilling of Judge Roberts yesterday reminded me of something that occurred about one year ago.

Remember John O'Neill and Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's Scarborough Country? A question would be put to Mr. O'Neill and O'Donnell would immediately start screaming, yelling, ranting, raving at Mr. O'Neill. I recall hearing a bit of it, O'Donnell would keep yelling you can't answer that can you? Well, no he was unable because O'Donnell would keep yelling at him. Hard to answer a question when someone is screaming "can't answer that can you?" constantly.

That is exactly how it seemed yesterday with Biden and Kennedy question Judge Roberts. They would put a question to him and as soon as Judge Robert tried to answer they would start butting in with objections and complaints about how they didn't like the answer. It got so bad Senator Specter had to enforce decency and ask the senator's to allow Judge Roberts to answer.
