Roberts does silent photo op.

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

For a whole week we had to endure the stupidest, most craven chorus of right wing Mainstream Media pap about Roberts, rank right winger candidate for the Supreme Court. With nearly no information, they declared that there was nothing bad about this jerk and that there was no way we could fillibuster him or oppose him in any way.

Well, now we have a good reason. Remember Clinton? He was supposed to be impeached for lying. Yes, lying. Lying was very very bad, the Republicans assured us of this. Of course, today, lying is not only OK, it is de rigure.

From Associated Press:
Supreme Court nominee John Roberts declined Monday to explain why he was listed in a Federalist Society leadership directory when the White House says he doesn't recall being a member of the conservative legal organization.

Roberts, nominated by President Bush last week to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, was asked by a reporter about the discrepancy during a morning get-acquainted meeting with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (news, bio, voting record), D-Calif.

He smiled but didn't reply.

"I don't think he wants to take any questions," Feinstein interjected during the session with photographers and reporters that was part of the meeting in her office with the Supreme Court nominee.

"No, no, no thanks," Roberts added.

Several news organizations, including The Associated Press, reported immediately after his nomination that Roberts had been a member of the Federalist Society. The AP and others printed corrections after the White House said later that Roberts doesn't recall ever belonging to the group.
Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, you get hired by the media bosses.

I am happy AP isn't owned by the Moonies or isn't owned by Murdoch. They overlooked this one last refuge for some news. Frankly, I get more news about America from my Commie Chinese source, Xinhua. Heh. Anyway, the real news here is that either Roberts is more brain dead than Terri or he is a liar. Or both.

He was the head of the Federalist's steering committee in DC! And this was a mere seven years ago! And he can't recall? Bwahahaha. Perhaps he suffers from too much drinking and was their drunk driver? He steered them into the guardrails because he passed out behind the wheel? The way they act, they certainly could pass for drunks.

If I sat on a steering committee, I sure as heck would remember that fact for more than a week.

Already, like with the Bolton hearings and the Cheney Oil War meeting notes, the dictator called Bush is trying to prevent any paperwork from leaking out and revealing the true nature of this brain dead idiot. Obviously, if he can't remember a thing, we ought to dig around to refresh his pathetic brain and jolt him into recalling stuff he would rather hide.

This reminds me that this fight is over not only economic issues but my civil rights which, frankly, I hold very dear. I hope my Senators are diligent and hard headed as they tear into this brainless idiot.

We have enough brain dead people in the Supreme Court as it is.
