U.S. Senate, Sotomayor turn into Ahmad Rashad and Michael Jordan ‘interview’

If you ever want to see examples of terrible interviewing skills, go onto Youtube and see if you can find footage of Ahmad Rashad interviewing Michael Jordan. The two were good friends, and Rashad’s questions to Jordan were nice, floating softball questions. It was as if Rashad gave Jordan the questions ahead of time, Jordan crossed off all the ones he didn’t want to answer and Rashad asked the rest. You know, questions like: How frustrating was it to have to pull off a win with the referees calling fouls on you, Michael?

Rick Reilly, whom I’ve disagreed with in the past, once had great thoughts on this subject.

Makes one think Rashad should’ve sticked to football commentary.

Now, we have the newest version of the Rashad and Jordan show, courtesy of Supreme Court justice nominee Senate Democrats and Sonia Sotomayor.

I still can’t believe Al Franken, during the hearings, actually asked Sotomayor about a Perry Mason episode. Granted, the legal drama supposedly inspired Sotomayor to get into law, but here’s something Al and Ms. S might not realize: it was a fictional show!

With ridiculous questions like that, it sounds like Franken, et al in the Donkey Party, have already made up their mind to vote for Sotomayor.

Back in the 1980s, one of Ronald Reagan’s Supreme Court nominees (not Robert Bork, by the way) withdrew himself after he admitted to having smoked marijuana as a youth. How times have changed: Sotomayor was caught making a racist comment about how Latino women would make better judges than white men and she’s allowed to become a historical revisionist.

I wonder why more Democrats don’t seem to ask Her Honor about her majority opinions that were reversed by the Supreme Court. Or if she really was taken out of context, based on her court rulings that seem to favor minorities.

That being said, I suspect she’ll get confirmed. The Democrats seem eager to appoint her (Michigan Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow will probably both vote for her). Let’s face it, the Republican Party really doesn’t have any balls. I hope that in my home state of Texas, Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn vote no.

Frustrating how the Democrats keep firing sharp missiles while the Republicans keep lobbing soft returns back.
