Neener Neener. Told You So.

So who the fuck is John Roberts Jr.? Exactly who I said he would be yesterday. I just didn't mention him by name. Because I didn't know his name, I just knew what he would be.

Alliance for Justice has the scoop on him, from a couple of years ago when he was nominated -- and confirmed -- to the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.

According to their report, Roberts has "a record of hostility to the rights of women and minorities" and he also is "in favor of weakening the separation of church and state and limiting the role of federal courts in protecting the environment".


"While working under Presidents Reagan and Bush, Mr. Roberts supported a hard-line, anti-civil rights policy that opposed affirmative action, would have made it nearly impossible for minorities to prove a violation of the Voting Rights Act and would have 'resegregated' America's public schools. He also took strongly anti-choice positions in two Supreme Court cases, one that severely restricted the ability of poor women to gain information about abortion services, and another that took away a key means for women and clinics to combat anti-abortion zealots."
And here's what Independent Judiciary had to say about him -- it ain't so good, either. Nor is this report from People for the American Way.

Bushco thinks that because Roberts has such a slim record on the DC Curcuit, he will be a stealth candidate for the right the way Souter turned out to be a stealth candidate for humanity. And they are probably right, because the Dems will cave in once again and give the bastard a free pass onto the highest court in the land.

Now, as I also predicted, just watch the lapdog media go slavering after left-wing quotes against Roberts, countered with right-wing quotes to "fair and balance" the left-wing quotes, and pretty soon it's going to be "Karl who?"

Bizness as usual for the Bush Crime Family, BOHICA for the rest of us.
