(04-16) 19:45 PDT WASHINGTON -- Senate Republicans took turns flaying appeals court nominee Goodwin Liu at his confirmation hearing Friday, accusing the UC Berkeley law professor of planning to rewrite the Constitution to enlarge government, expand judicial power and invent new rights.

No bias in that headline.
My thoughts too.
that headline isn’t biased is it.
How about the headline saying unqualified appointee is questioned directly by the GOP doing their work
O wait this is san freako we’re talking to where perverts etc are looked as normal and normal is not normal
Read the comments under the article. Readers are not impressed with this judicial candidate.
“UC Berkeley law professor “
Says all I need to know.
"Liberal senators politely chide judge Thomas over his lewd behavior toward shocked underling."
Another one of Obama’s Marxist appointees. Is there any doubt Obama is a Marxist?
I recall having read that some people went to great lengths to dig up stuff on Bork, even to the point of asking a video store for his rental records and publishing the results!
My new tag line
>Read the comments under the article. Readers are not impressed with this judicial candidate.<
the country wasn’t and still is not impressed with Congress or Obama care and it isn’t stopping either of them is it?
We are so screwed.
As a loyal Conservative, I’m feeling thoroughly chastened. Hopefully, Conservative questioners will be inspired to look to Democrat manners to treat judicial nominees as they deserve to be treated. Perhaps we can start with Ted Kennedy and Chuck Schumer to guide our actions, yeah, that oughta do it.
