Here’s a story about the nomination of Judge John Roberts.
And here is the text of Roberts’ smile-for-the-cameras remarks.
1) Never let it be said that George W. Bush is one to back down from a fight.
2) There will be a fight.
3) And this nomination goes to show that, in William Goldman’s words, “Nobody knows nothin’.” Who predicted the Roberts pick? I did a fair bit of reading leading up to this nomination and never once ran across his name.
And to all a good night.
