I haven't written anything about the Roberts confirmation because:
1) I don't think that there is a damned thing the Democrats can do to stop his confirmation.
2) Although I don't like him, I think Bush could have chosen somebody worse, and probably WILL if Roberts DOESN'T get confirmed.
However, that doesn't mean that I'd prefer the Democrats spineless. I think they should fight against every single piece of ideological trash that the White House proposes, becuse it's just the principled thing to do, and consulting polls instead of principles has hurt the Democrats DRASTICALLY.
So it's nice to know that Harry Reid is going to oppose someone - and oppose him for good reason.
RAW STORY has Reid's speech. Go read it.
