Good Grammar, Bad Political Ideology

Judge Roberts may not be a liberal's dream for Supreme Court Justice, but at least he knows his grammar. Now that's a relief. I can tolerate Conservatives (heck, most of my best friends are Republicans), but I cannot tolerate someone with bad grammar.

I guess you can only ask so much from a Supreme Court nominee, right? And good grammar is far more important than political ideology in my book.

The good thing about Supreme Court decisions is that they're always crafted by intelligent people who are excellent writers so while they might be boring, technical, jargon-laden, and/or verbose, they're not as painful to read as, say, the congressional record.

Would you support him? What do you make of his 'position' (only because we can't really tell what it is from his writings alone) on church/state issues?

Well, my judicial politics professor insisted that Scalia was a terrible writer, but that might just be reflective of his political views...

On Roberts in general, it's hard to know exactly where he stands, but I would support his nomination and appointment. Listen, he's a conservative and that's not exactly the ideology I would like to see on the court, but he's pretty non-controversial.

I think the Democrats should wait to put up the fight for Rehnquist's replacement.
