Political Cartoon Captures Roberts Hearing Perfectly

I'm not normally a big fan of Honolulu Advertiser's political cartoonist Dick Adair. I have on several occasions threatened to drop my subscription in response to some of his mean and partisan attacks on President Bush and the war in Iraq.

Even so, he is a good cartoonist and, more often than I would like to give him credit for, comes up with a winning visual encapsulation of a news story.

Today was one of his good days. This cartoon captures the essence of the Senate Judicial Committee hearing on his appointment to the US Supreme Court as Chief Justice. As the cartoon shows, the Democrats keep throwing but they rarely, if ever, hit anything.
