The Supreme


Everyone seems to think John Roberts is in like Flynn. If he can dodge questions about Roe v. Wade satisfactorily, we’ll be dealing with this guy for the rest of our lives. Or at least I will. I think Roberts should also have to answer for his son’s footwear. He should field at least a few questions like, “Do you think it’s fair to foist saddle shoes on a person who doesn’t have the resources to know better?” and “At what age is it appropriate for your child, or any child, to stop wearing saddle shoes?” Catching Roberts offguard with some saddle shoe questions may very well produce some pertinent revelations into his character.

Son Roberts looks like he might be rebelling a bit with the saddle shoes. Or dancing. Either way, he's far more interesting than anything W could be saying.

He is a cute little guy, but I feel sorry for him with the saddle shoes. Maybe the shoes and the dancing were planned, in order to distract from what was happening at the podium. It worked in my case, clearly.

I'd be happier if Quinn were on the court.

Did you see John Stewart's thing on the dancing Robert's kid? Hilarious. No, people who are in touch with the world around them do not put their kid in saddle shoes. He has to be a highly repressed person mentally living in another era. This is not a person we want on the supreme court.

i'm relieved to find consensus on the saddles. Teen daughter thought I was being a little harsh. But it's not the kid's fault, let's face it.

I saw the Jon Stewart bit on the Roberts kid last night online. Best line: "Looks like he's losing the case of family v. riddlin."

I'm still in therapy over the saddle shoes my mother forced me to wear when I was 4 yrs old. I knew even then how horrible it was.

I can't see you in the saddles. What about Kathy? Saddles?
