Caught a bit of Neil Gorsuch inquiry on the news before leaving. He’s like those job candidates we hate to interview, wasting everybody’s time with endless verbiage aimed at pleasing everybody and committing to nothing.
“Which of these textbooks would you prefer to use in this course?”
“Well, an argument could be made for both of these excellent textbooks.”
“Yes, it could. Please make one for the book you would prefer to use.”
“Well, they are both excellent textbooks and one could argue convincingly in favor of either of them.”
“Is there maybe another textbook you’ve used that you like?”
“Well, an argument could be made in favor of any of the excellent textbooks on the market.”
And so on, interminably.
