Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, introduced the cloture vote on Cass Sunstein’s nomination by addressing some of the conservative movement-driven attacks on him and rebutting them with letters from conservative supporters. “This is one of those nomination,” said Lieberman, “that I think has become unnecessarily controversial.” Sunstein’s most eye-popping statements on gun and animal rights? Well, Sunstein is “brilliant and prolific,” and he’s written “some unconventional things.”
The only other senator using time to speak on Sunstein’s nomination was Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who stuck to a character sketch of her old law school teacher, who looked like a “boy in man’s clothes” when she met him at the University of Chicago. OIRA, said Klobuchar, “is a very difficult agency, and no one is quite sure what it does.” Lieberman thanked her and continued to talk about Sunstein’s endorsements from the Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.
