The Questioning Continues

Kevin McKague was kind enough to send a link to the transcript of the confirmation proceedings. I will update below over the course of the day.

Senator Brownback: Some questioning on abortion, some might say the mirror image of the questioning from Demorcatic senators from yesterday on the issue. Segues into Brown v. Board of Education and Plessy v. Ferguson. The senator really needs to stop referring to Kansas as the "host state" of Brown. Does he not get that Brown was hardly a proud moment for Kansas since the state was segregating its schools and only stopped when the Court ruled the practice unconstitutional? Playing up the role of his home state is probably not a good thing to do in this case.
