Judge Mukasey’s confirmation hearing for Attorney General gets underway today at 10:00 a.m. The arrogance of special interest groups and the notion that somehow THEY determine the proper bounds of questions and who deserves confirmation is on display in this account. (“The nominee is not allowed to leave the [Judiciary] committee without making clear commitments,” said Chris Anders, the ACLU’s senior legislative counsel. “We are looking for yes-or-no answers.”) On a brighter note, it appears that even Sen. Leahy couldn’t find anything wrong with the Judge and is prepared to confirm him promptly.
