And hopefully, Cate Blanchett will start returning my calls

Olympia Snowe wins a spot in the top drawer of the Wingnut Tool Box by agreeing to not disagree with John Roberts:

What little the White House has decided to make available to the Senate shows that Roberts took extreme partisan positions, on issues ranging from privacy, to civil rights, to equal pay for women. Roberts wrote that a federal court decision that sought to guarantee equal pay for women was "a radical redistributive concept." He strongly objected to and even ridiculed three Republicans members of Congress, including current U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME), who favored the decision, noting that "their slogan may as well be 'From each according to his ability, to each according to her gender.'" Snowe recently remarked that, "Hopefully, 21 years later, Judge Roberts possesses an openness with respect to issues of gender-based wage discrimination." (Washington Post, 8/16/05; USA Today, 8/16/05; Associated Press, 8/16/05)

Shorter Snowe: "I'm going to ignore this for as long as I can, and when he starts pissing on my shoes we'll have a nice discussion about how hard it's raining."
