Plausible Deniability

Just to put things in perspective, my website is older than the judicial career of the man George Bush chose to put on our highest court. Not that his inexperience means that the President has any doubts about how John Roberts is going to rule on issues like abortion. You don’t pluck somebody from the mailroom to be CEO unless you know what you’re getting. With a resume light on jobs that require a black robe, the Roberts pick is less about picking the right man for the job and more about screwing the American people out of the ability to adequately evaluate the President’s choice. I’ll keep my fingers crossed until the hearings, but I’m not gonna get my hopes up.

You also have to wonder how seriously the President takes this appointment when it’s been hastily announced in a transparent attempt to deflect attention away from the Plame matter.
