Bush strolls through the flowered streets of Heaven with Roberts
“When a president chooses a justice, he’s placing in human hands the authority and majesty of the law.”
This was the second sentence out of Bush’s mouth last night as he announced his decision to appoint Justice John Roberts. Who even uses a word like “majesty?” Christians, of course. “Majesty” is a key buzzword tossed around by Christians and it was obviously Bush’s acknowledgement to Evangelicals that Roberts was going to interpret the law the Jesusy way. In other words, gays deserve zero constitutional rights and Roe V Wade is toilet paper.
Here’s what Bush’s other architect, James Dobson, had to say:
“President Bush is to be commended for keeping his promise to the American people by selecting such an impartial, accomplished jurist to fill this crucial seat on the high court. Judge Roberts is an unquestionably qualified attorney and judge with impressive experience in government and the private sector. He has demonstrated at every stop on his career path the legal acumen, judicial temperament and personal integrity necessary to be a Supreme Court justice… We trust that, in light of these rock-solid credentials, the U.S. Senate will work together over the next several weeks to ensure Judge Roberts gets the up-or-down confirmation vote he is entitled to under the Constitution.”
Can’t you just smell the precum on Dobson’s gay-hating cock? He couldn’t be more excited about the selection. Pundits keep saying Roberts is a “wise” choice. Truth is, Bush wanted a staunch conservative with a limited paper trail. As always, the evangelicals are Bush’s true architects.
