Dave Henry "Hearts" John Roberts

In this morning's Globe-Republican, Dave Henry the "Ghost Writer" comes right out and speaks truth.

"We aren't necessarily interested in the extensive digging into the background of U.S. Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, which includes everything but a DNA test."

"However, there is one aspect of Roberts' past that makes him a qualified candidate for the highest court in the land. Back in the 1980s, Roberts told Michael Jackson to beat it."


Yes, Democracy lovers everywhere, where to begin with this utter insult to the intelligence of Panhandlans?

Shorter Dave Henry:

'We' (Whoever the hell that is) don't really have an interest in any questions (Hey, isn't the AG-R a paper? anyhoo . . .) involving a potential nominee to the highest court in the land for a lifetime appointment, which apparently DOES means FOR LIFE or at least until someone notices the decaying form behind the bench.

No questions allowed about his disregard for your right to privacy. HERE

No questions allowed about affirmative action files missing from the national archives AFTER the Bushistas reviewed 'em. HERE

No big deal that he was a deputy for uber political asassin Ken Starr. HERE

No big deal that he told congress that he does not know if he is a member of the Federalist Society, but the Wash. Post found him on the leadership directory?! HERE

No biggie that he is a supporter of Operation Rescue? HERE

Never mind that he has said that Roe vs. Wade was "Wrongly Decided". HERE

Never mind that Roberts told tortured Iraq war vets (first one) who sued for reparations to kiss off. HERE

Nope, Roberts suggested that Reagan not write a letter in support of Michael Jackson. DING! DING! QUALIFIED!

But I have a question . . . is the AG-R still a frikkin' "Newspaper"? Why not lay out the facts and let the good people of the panhandle decide DAVE?

The above took me about 1 hour TOTAL to find on the internets, (Thanks to dkosopeidia, NYTimes, Wash Post, etc.)
