Leaky Lahey Reverts To Schoolyard Taunts When Questioned About Kagan’s Clinton Memos

Leaky Lahey gives this childish response when pressed over whether he will push the White House to turn over Kagan’s memos from her days as counsel to Bill Clinton:

“I haven’t even thought about what I’m going to do,” Leahy said at first.

When pressed about the importance of mining memos from her four years at the White House to gain insight into her thinking on judicial philosophy and policy matters, Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont, became testy.

“I’ll tell you what. I think what is important is for you to let me run the hearing and we’ll let you know,” he said.

“I think it would be grandstanding on my part to try to tell you what I want to do before I even talk to the nominee,” Leahy added.

When questioned a third time, Leahy shot back: “Maybe you ought to chair the hearing,” before turning and walking into an elevator.

I know you are, but what am I?
