"Rank, cynical, infuriating, mindless hypocrisy."

That's how one Bench Memos reader sums up this awful editorial today in the New York Times. Several bloggers have already commented on it - here's Matthew Franck's take and Andrew Hyman has a few words of comment as well.

Personally, my favorite line from the editorial is this one: "In any case, the Senate has no business rifling through materials the A.B.A. does not want to provide." Yeah, just who do these U.S. Senators think they are? Michael Greco?

Here is my earlier post reviewing some of the commentary on the Wallace nomination.
