Yawn, Roberts

I gotta tellya, I'm having a hard time getting worked up about John Roberts.  Sure he's a slippery, evil conservative.  But so was Rehnquist, whom he's replacing.  He's not gonna tilt the court any further to the right.  It's the next nomination, to replace Sandra Day O'Connor's swing vote, that we gotta watch out for. 

On a semi-unrelated note: did you see the bootlicking from the Judiciary Committee Repubicans -- that was unbe-freakin'-lieavable.  Have they no pride?  No arrogance?  Aren't they Republicans?
