Today's Roberts round-up

There's a myriad of Roberts news to choose from, but here's a few selections for this morning. BuzzFlash discusses the relationship of Roberts' nomination to the Rove scandal, vis a vis presidential pardons. Roberts' connections to groups such as Operation Rescue and Concerned Women for America have put progressive groups on guard, and Pseudo-Adrienne reports that NARAL Pro-Choice America has sent a letter to the White House requesting information on his ties to 14 different right-wing groups. Scott Shields talks about Roberts' racist history, while Bradford Plumer spells out the "Roberts effect" -- how his nomination might not overturn Roe v. Wade, but could endanger reproductive rights on a state level. (BuzzFlash; Echidne of the Snakes; MyDD; Mojo Blog)
