« CBS' "Rock Star: INXS" | Main | NBC's "The Law Firm" »

July 27, 2005



One of the things that made those hearings so memorable for me was that they occurred during the Twins-Blue Jays ALCS, so CBS was forced to cover some of the evening games and the evening sessions of the confirmation hearings in a split screen. I seem to recall that Puckett homered during Thomas' high tech lynching speech. Fortuntely the hearings ended before the World Series and we were able to watch the most dramtic World Series ever unbothered. Puckett's home run in the 11th, Morris' shutout and Larkin's lazy little looper to left. I still get goose bumps.

Law Monkey

Don't forget that old pirate movie, Long John Silver. Wait, do I have that title right? ;)


Careful.... If try describing the Clarence Thomas hearings to a female law student, you may find yourself sued for sexual harassment, and wouldn't that be a real Bork in the pants!!


Talking of Clarence confirmation, remember that one time we discussed the sexual harrassment claim against him, it came out when he was going through the confirmation right?

I wonder what comes out of the Roberts confirmation. Awaiting allegations of scandals as we speak. Although he looks just like any white Catholic heterosexual male to me. Probably nothing in the realms of sexual impropriety to speak of.

btw, you probably wouldn't be looking into the clerkship listings, even though you are the designated faculty advisor in this process--Roberts is still listed on the system as hiring law clerks for next year. I think I am going to blog about that.
