Hear hear.

At least with politicians, smooth demeanor is a job-related asset. Part of diplomacy.

Judges should be judged on their judging. I imagine an orchestra-audition-style senate meeting where interrogators can ask tough questions to a curtain and then wait for replies from the printer at the podium.

Imagine the gasps when the curtain rises on the confirmed nominee: S/he's---(gasp)---ugly/obese/short/handicapped/unkempt/ill-mannered/etc./etc.

ugh. i heard this first on npr last night, and nina totenberg, who i used to adore, gushed about the "nice man."

blech. gimme a jerk who respects my civil liberties any day.
