Inconvenient Truths, plus Blah Blah Blah
In the spirit of equal time - which I generally don't believe in here at Article 19 - it's worth giving all of you this warning of truth, as we go forth properly bashing Pat Robertson's Regent University Law School. A team from Regent will participate in the International Negotiation competition in July. Why? Because they won first place in the ABA national competition (last year's winner was from Harvard). Go figure.
Also, I have to not recommend watching hearings like the one Monica Goodling is in currently. Could there be a worse format for asking serious questions? Each member gets just enough time to maybe hint at an area of questioning, but are then cut off by the clock. Then every other questioner is a Republican who makes glowing speeches until their time runs out. No momentum, no continuity, it's kind of pointless. If you want to know the highlight - watch this brief clip. [UPDATE: and, better yet, this one.]
One thing is for sure - her lack of experience was on display in the execution of her job...but which Bush appointee would we *not* say that about?
