Pretty fly for a white guy

Judge John Roberts

It’s the last time I trust the Washington rumor mill. Ha! Only joking. As you may or may not know, President Bush nominated U.S. Court of Appeals, District of Columbia, Judge John Roberts to succeed Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court. Thus, all the speculation about a somewhat moderate woman candidate is obviously kaput. He’s definitely another white guy, but also being another white guy I don’t suppose I should hold that against him.

Where he stands with respect to interpreting the law versus party politics is something I guess we will just have to find out if he is confirmed by the Senate. What Senate Democrats will do is probably what Senate Republicans will do — bloviate. Anyway, the big day for GW has come. How many more justices he gets to nominate only time will tell.

I just hope there isn’t a repeat of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. I don’t think I drank Coca-Cola again after that for a long, long time.
