Conservative bloggers for gay Judge Roberts

It's time someone spoke up against vast "Leftist" conspiracy to tar the good judge as a flaming queen:


The recent news is that Judge Roberts helped his law firm's attorneys prepare for a case in 1996 that went before the Supreme Court of the United States that involved the equal protection clause's application to homosexuals. Judge Roberts didn't participate in the litigation itself, but it is reported that he reviewed briefs and assisted in preparation for oral argument. The New York Times and CBS also was provided the above picture by a credible source who just happens to be an officer in MoveOn.org.
The purpose for reporting this story was obvious. The goal was to undermine Judge Roberts support among social conservatives. It has even been implied at by Leftists and places like Democratic Underground that Judge Roberts may be gay. This, the hypothesis goes, may explain his adoption of children. We believe that these speculations and tactics are despicable. Still, assuming for the sake of argument that they are right, and Judge Roberts has performed legal work that helped homosexuals or, heaven forbid, he is even gay, we respond with a resounding: SO WHAT!

Judge Roberts -- putting the "Supreme" back in Supreme Court. No homosexual-loving liberal could argue with that.
