The best part of politics: because they're all screwing us anyway.

David Brooks hearts John Roberts

Must we really be subjected to Brooks waxing poetic about judicial nominations?

Roberts nomination, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee with the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee because this is the way government is supposed to work. President Bush consulted widely, moved beyond the tokenism of identity politics and selected a nominee based on substance, brains, careful judgment and good character.

I love thee because John G. Roberts is the face of today's governing conservatism.

Hmmm...seems Brooksie has a wee bit of a crush on the pretty boy judge, eh? I bet he'd like that robed cutie to be the face of his governing conservatism any day.

But somehow, the thought of token-conservative-columnist- on-enigmatic-judicial-nominee doesn't quite do it for me.
