Roberts Makes it to the Senate

Whee. Ain't we having fun now?

Five Democrats -- Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California, Joseph Biden of Delaware, Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, Charles Schumer of New York and Dick Durbin of Illinois -- opposed Roberts.

I suppose I can understand the thought processes of those Democrats who voted for him. He's fairly bland, seemingly moderate (though looks, of course, can be deceiving, and, well, with Katrina and, very soon, the Rita disaster, the Rove machine might be able to use the media to beat the Democrats if they successfully oppose/filibuster Roberts and claim the old "if he isn't good enough, none of them will be!" crap. I'm not too angry with them. I want to see what happens if he appoints one of those real nutballs.

He's satisified the moderates with Roberts so I think the "nut-ball" is coming up next to satisfy his "wing-nut" right base.
