“The question Republicans need to ask is: Why do the Democrats want to keep judicial nominees like Janice Rogers Brown and Priscilla Owen off the federal bench?
As I understand it, the reason Democrats are in a blind rage about Priscilla Owen is that, as a state court judge in Texas, Owen interpreted a law passed by the Texas Legislature requiring parental consent for 14-year-old girls to have abortions to mean that parental consent was required for 14-year-old girls to have abortions.
I think Americans need to hear Democrats explain that.”
And when they DO explain it, such as when Cynthia Tucker makes the attempt  in the case of Judge Brown, to list specific objections, all that gets really done is to re-affirm she’s the person we need just now to get the job done.
Ann’s right. Drag ’em out, kicking and screaming.
Let them defend their positions… it’s an impossible task for them.
