They interviewed locals here about their reaction on the Chicago news. They had some guy who was a 'Conservative Activist' and he said he was proud of the appointment. That first and foremost would now like to see an overturn of Roe vs. Wade, then prayer put back in school, and then gay rights to be overturned.

Wow, is all I can say...

Even if this nutter likes him now, Roberts couldn't get away with doing all that. Could he? COULD HE?

The Christian Taliban gives me nightmares. I wish the Supreme Court would ban them instead.

They need to dig through his past to find out the important issues such as, "Did he employ an illegal immigrant as a nanny?" "Did he smoke weed?" Maybe comb through his computer and see if he has some porn on it.

I say we need to wait. Many nominees to the Supreme Court who were expected to lean one way, often ended up surprising people on the bench.

I don't like this. I hope the "activist" is going overboard on the whole thing.

I hope we can get beyond simply posting inflammatory comments from activists (left or right).

Justice O'Connor Wishes Her Replacement Was Woman


WASHINGTON -- Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has mixed feelings about President George W. Bush's choice of John Roberts to replace her.

O'Connor said the federal appeals court judge is "first rate," but she's disappointed that the nominee isn't a woman.

O'Connor said she's had an eye on Roberts since he was an advocate before the high court. She said she and the other justices were "enormously impressed with his scholarship and his skills."

But while she thinks he's "well qualified," she said she hates to see the percentage of women on the Supreme Court "drop by 50 percent."

1 woman alone is pretty damn sad.

Compare with Canada, which has 4/9 women on our Supreme Court, including a female Chief Justice.

I don't she said anything about quotas, but just that she was dissapointed.

I think everyone should, our courts should be a representative of this country as a whole and it's not even close.

He is also an extremist in that he recently voted to allow military tribunals for gitmo prisoners and that the Geneva Conventions don't apply for Gitmo prisoners. I think this issue supersedes the others as the Court knocked down several Executive power grabs when O'Connor was on the bench.
