Coburn Again

Repeating his fine performance in Round One, Coburn zeroed in on two issues. First, he emphasized her evasiveness on the Second Amendment, picking up where Lindsay Graham left off. Indeed, he provoked, if not anger, at least visible frustration from the nominee. On this one, Coburn has the better of the argument: he is not asking for a “how will I rule” answer, he is asking for a “how would you look at the issue” answer. She is unwilling to give even that and he is right to be peeved about her evasion.

Second, he went back to her error from yesterday when she suggested she would have to know state law to opine on the legality of aborting a 38-week unborn child. This time around she said she “didn’t know” whether state law was supplanted by Casey. Really? Again — not well versed or playing hide-the-ball? Score another one for the doctor.
