First Saturday in October

Here is an interblog discussion between Amba and Althouse on Barack Obama's vote against confirming John Roberts as Chief Justice.

My personal (admittedly under-informed) idea is that Roberts seems quite professional and qualified, and doesn't seem like a political hatchet man or crackpot at all. Even though he hasn't been on the bench for years and years, he's quite obviously not a patronage-ish appointment like some people we could mention. So, let let me wish Mr. Roberts good luck on his new appointment, on this, the birthday of his late predecessor. Looks like he's just in time to meet Anna Nicole Smith.

I think the first thing Roberts ought to do is to replace this...

...with this.
