News flash: Ted Kennedy is a blowhard

I just got done listening to half an hour of questions from Sen. Ted Kennedy to Judge John Roberts. He so loves to hear himself talk, is so caught up in his own importance, that he refuses to listen to anyone but himself.

He spoke for at least as long as Roberts did (I'm willing to bet it was 60-40 in favor of Kennedy), and interrupted Roberts' answers numerous times. By my count, Committee Chairman Arlen Specter chastised Kennedy at least four times, telling him to "Let him finish his answer, Senator Kennedy."

It's also obvious that if any "controversial" memo from Roberts' time in the Reagan administration is raised, Roberts will distance himself from it by noting that he was simply advancing the policy position of his employer.
