Sink or Swim?

I see reports that Senator Dianne Feinstein met with Samuel Alito to discuss his judicial philosophy:

Feinstein said she believed Alito was sincere.

She said they discussed Row v. Wade, the landmark case that legalized abortion . . .

Yeah, Row versus Wade. A couple of times I’ve actually had to make that decision in a swamped canoe.

That’s probably the intern’s doing, but it’s not the first time Senator Feinstein has been associated with a little Roe goofiness. A couple of months ago she had this to say:

“It would be very difficult for me to vote to confirm someone to the Supreme Court whom I knew would overturn Roe and return our country to the days of the 1950s,” the 72-year-old Democratic senator said.

I think the reporter tacked on her age to remind us that when you’re in your seventies, the decades all blend together.
