Roberts is an honorless political hack who has violated his oath and betrayed his country. One of the first orders of business after the election should be for the House to impeach him.

If we could impeach judges for bad decisions, there would be few judges.

If I thought Roberts was simply mistaken I wouldn't want him to be impeached. But as best I can tell, Roberts didn't rule as he did because he was wrong, but because he wanted that particular outcome and invented a reason to support it. *That* is what makes him an honorless political hack that betrayed his country.

WASHINGTON -- The Simpsons on unpredictable judges:

Marge: "Do you want your son to become chief justice of the Supreme Court, or a sleazy male stripper?"

Homer: "Can't he be both, like the late Earl Warren?"

Marge: "Earl Warren wasn't a stripper!"

Homer: "Now who's being nave."

Warren's actual vices tended more toward the ideological. Dwight Eisenhower came to regret the liberal activism of his choice for the Supreme Court, calling it the "biggest damned-fool mistake I ever made." Other presidents must also have been frustrated by their selections on the far side of life...
