Poor John Roberts--he gets a nomination to the Supreme Court, the pinnacle of his very successful career, and the next thing you know people are commenting on his dancing kid and his anti-abortion wife and anything they can dig up from his quite uncheckered past. But this from Wonkette takes the cake:
Wonkette operatives have alerted us to some details in John G. Roberts background. We're not making any conclusions here -- we wouldn't want to comment on an ongoing investigation -- we're just laying out the facts: He is a graduate of an all-boys Catholic school where, as a member of the wrestling team, he regularly grappled with other sweaty, repressed boys. That is when he wasn't the drama club playing Peppermint Patty, for God's sake. He was also an editor of the school newspaper, "The Torch."Wonkette fails to mention that his wife looks chilly and their children are adopted...
And yet the Right still asserts that "he's no flame-thrower."
We like him more and more.
Is the Far Right sure he isn't going to be an even bigger disappointment than Souter?
