However Roberts-like a disappointment she may or may not turn out to be eventually, I do like the cut of her jib so far.
Senator: Can you show us if you are reading from any notes or are you doing this all from memory?

Update! Okay, I admit did NOT see this coming.
Senate Democrats said earlier this week that they hoped to defeat the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court by focusing “on the issues and the merits.”
Now, on day two of her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dems are telling reporters are impressed with what they see.
While Barrett was still being grilled Tuesday, even liberal reporters on CNN and NBC had to admit that she was doing a good job answering the Senators’ questions.
Sen. John Cornyn, (R-Texas) had earlier asked Barrett about how she had prepared for the hearing.
All morning long, Barrett effortlessly answered questions on a wide range of judicial matters, and was able to summon from memory her own past judgments and those of other courts.
“You know most of us have multiple notebooks and notes and books and things like that in front of us,” Cornyn said. “Can you hold up what you’ve been referring to in answering our questions?”
Barrett smiled and held up a blank notepad that was sitting in front of her.
“Is there anything on it?” Cornyn asked.
“The letterhead that says ‘United States Senate,’” she responded.
“That’s impressive,” Cornyn said.
Won’t stop all the Demonrats from voting against her confirmation, I’m sure.
