Roe v. Wade is the least of our problems...

Y'all might want to refrain from super-sizing from now on.

So I just did my "PowerPoint-deep" background check on our Supreme Court nominee, and I'm already scared! It turns out that, during his short tenure as a judge on the DC circuit, the newly announced Supreme Court associate justice nominee, John Roberts, voted to uphold the arrest and detention of that girl who got plexi-cuffed at the Tenleytown Metro for eating a french fry. It's true! For those unfamiliar with this news of the absurd, here's a passable primer I've found on the episode.

So I guess we know how the McDonalds lobby will swing on this one.

Stupid law but not unconstitutional. Roberts' decision was constitutionally correct.

I find it odd that eating fries on the Metro ended up in some hig-up Circuit Court.

Let's hope he's the David Souter of our time and the conservatives get tooled on a pick they thought would always be in their camp :)
(See Drudge: Ann Coulter is already freaked out by this pick.)

WAIT! I forgot the girl was 12 years old. 12 year old do not need to get cuffed for eating fries. Now, Mickey D's hot cherry pies...that's a different story.
