Roberts ain't stealth

Not to toot my own horn but... this is what I said right from the beginning. If we're honest with ourselves, John Roberts isn't a mystery for one BIG reason. The Rude One just uses more curse words than the VP and makes no bones about "proudly lowering the level of political discourse." That said:


"Fuck his writings, fuck his interviews, fuck the cases he's tried, fuck the cases he's decided. John Roberts is a known quantity for one simple reason: he was nominated by George W. Bush. And to trust these vicious bastards for a moment is to end up with a shiv in your ribs."
A-men.

Like a spray of windex to the cloudy debate:
"Is there anyone, Democrat or Republican, who thinks that Roberts got out of interviews with Rove and Cheney without them knowing exactly how he would rule on every goddamn issue that might come up, from Roe v. Wade to enemy combatant cases?"
