I'll miss you, Ms. O'Connor

I liked Sandra Day O'Connor. I liked her a lot. I thought she was warm, fair, knowlegable, intelligent, and an all around good person. Plus, she was a skirt. I was sad when she decided to step down.
But now, I'm just angry.
Bush announced his candidate for the Supreme Court. Who? I'll give you a hint. White, male, conservative, Christian, and republican.
Oh, does that sound like most the men in power these days?
Anyhow, it's John Roberts.
I looked at the Washington Post's profile on him. I figured I should at least know something about him. I was never really happy about this choice becausee if he gets into the job, we can all kiss Roe vs. Wade goodbye. However, while looking through the profile, I saw this one piece at the end that kind of disturbed me. Not so much because it happenned, but because the Post somehow decided that of all the cases to mention, they wanted to mention this.
Let's read, shall we?

"As a judge on the D.C. Circuit, Roberts voted with two colleagues to uphold the arrest and detention of a 12-year-old girl for eating french fries on the Metro train,"

I mean, honestly, it wasn't like they were crack-fries. But I digress. Make your own assumptions.

only 2 are technically liberal, both appointed by clinton.

fortunately, a lot more have turned out moderate or leaned towards democratic ideals.
