It Could Happen

Bush Appoints Roberts As Supreme Court Justice

President Bush sidestepped the Senate and installed hardly embattled nominee John Roberts as Supreme Court Justice on Monday, ending a three-week not-really-an-impasse with Democrats who might have accused Roberts of something and perhaps being guilty of conservative ideology.

"This post is too important to leave vacant any longer, especially when I need to get to the ranch at Crawford and clear brush. Besides, Justice O'Connor said she wouldn't step down until the post was filled, so she might get to show she's not a complete right-wing whacko on a couple more decisions--we can't have that," Bush said. He said Roberts had his complete confidence, just as he was confident Barbara and Jenna would know where to get abortions if they needed them no matter what happened to Roe v. Wade.
