No comment

NY Times columnist David Rosenbaum today reminds potential borkhappy senators that the words "no comment" by Supreme Court nominees on particular topics should expected in upcoming hearings and are historically based. Says Rosenbaum:

[A]s a practical matter, senators have no real recourse when a nominee declines to answer questions. They can hardly refuse to confirm the nominee on that ground alone, since so many other justices who have been noncommittal on the issues of the day have been approved.

And even as Dems threaten to act like donkeys on the Supreme nomination, a Washington Times editorial reminds them to adhere to their own standard on the timing of hearings.
