I am John Roberts, I am the Borg

At least now we know Roberts strategy. Sure he's advocated a number of morally repugnant positions, but none of them were his morally repugnant positions. Here's his rote response to a question about Title IX:

ROBERTS: Senator, I was a staff lawyer. I didn't have a position. The administration had a position, and the administration's position was the two-fold position that you set forth. First, Title IX applies. Second, it applies to the office, the admissions office...
BIDEN: Only to the office, right? It applies narrowly?
SPECTER: Now, wait a minute. Let him finish his answer, Senator Biden.
BIDEN: His answers are misleading, with all due respect.
SPECTER: Well...
SPECTER: Now, wait a minute, wait a minute. They may be misleading, but they are his answers.
BIDEN: OK, fine.
SPECTER: You may finish, Judge Roberts.
BIDEN: Fire away. Fire away. At least I'm misunderstanding your answer.
ROBERTS: With respect, they are my answers. And, with respect, they're not misleading, they're accurate. [TRANSCRIPT]
With respect, Judge Roberts, they are not answers at all, misleading or otherwise.
