Forgetting What's Important

by Ruth

While everyone is discussing whether or not John G. Roberts is a good nominee, whether he's too far/not far enough to the Right, and whether President Bush should have appointed a female, they are losing sight of what's really important.

And that is that John G. Roberts would be the best looking Supreme Court Justice in quite some time. Right now all we have is Justice Breyer, and while the baldness is handsome in its own way, he simply doesn't compare to Roberts. Not that Roberts compares to, say, Brad Pitt. I'm not even saying that Roberts is objectively great looking. But he'll still be more fun to look at than Justice Stevens.

That is superficially all.

He's also way better looking than speculated nominee Alberto Gonzales. Which is something. :-)

I assume you picked out Justice Stevens because of his bow tie. Why don't you pick on Tucker Carlson? Now, are you prepared to critique Justice Stevens' opinions? He at least has a record, and he can be proud of it. Now let's take a look at Judge Roberts' record, which comparatively is a tabula rasa, except for the blackboard screeching about his connection with the Federalist Society.

Actually I picked Justice Stevens because his face looked blotchy in that picture. Didn't even notice the bowtie, to tell you the truth.

The rest of your comment was sort of lost on me. I can't really be bothered to compare records. I couldn't tell you the record of either. Hence my "that is superficially all" at the end of my post.

The whole point of my post was that we should NOT look at their records, but look at their faces. And Roberts' looks best. *shrugs*
