The Roberts nomination

I don't know much about John Roberts, yet, and won't comment on the nomination until I've had a chance to do a little reading and research.

I was vastly amused, however, to see that the electronic shit-flinging campaigns, from both sides, have already begun. If you Google "John Roberts," here are the sponsored links that show up. (Clearly, both sides bought up all the relevant URLs for everybody on the short list long in advance.)
