    --the right or left sinks her,this appointment is an insult to the institution of the court and to the American people as well.  There apparently no low low enough for these people.

    At some level, just as you say, there is no pay off to either party for having an unqualified person on the court. On a human level, I can't think how self conscious she will feel compared to her exalted peers or how they will feel about HER. With the possible exception of Thomas, she arrives on the court with the least credibility of any justice maybe EVER.

    I also cannot see these hearings actually providing us with any useful information for any other investigation - despite the information that Georgia10 nicely summarizes.  I just think that its going to be an embarrassment to his administration and to our country - again - during the tenure of this miserable and horrible president.

      Well, if she feels too self-conscious about her lack of credibility, then she, Thomas, and Roberts can form a mutual support group.
