I open up my inbox today, and happened to glace at the Sacramento Bee’s email update… and what are they leading with?
Feinstein complimentary after meeting nominee Roberts
WASHINGTON (AP) – Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., met one-on-one with Supreme Court nominee John Roberts on Monday, emerging to compliment him as modest, thoughtful and impressive.
… do I need to read anything more? What the hell is she doing?!? (please give me your best guess in the comment section)
Feinstein [is] the only woman on the 18-member Senate Judiciary Committee that will hold hearings on the nomination. (empahsis mine, TL)
Doesn’t it seem as if there is something wrong here? The first woman appointed to the Supreme Court, still only one of two women on it in a profession where women have acheived near parity in numbers, is retiring and the U.S. Senate can only muster one single solitary woman to assist in the evaluation of her proposed male replacement?!? 17 men and 1 single woman.
… and not a very “good” woman at that, it appears. 🙁
