Roberts' Rules of Order

So, that John Roberts? Not so much on the civil rights. Despite how questionable I find affirmative action, you can't actually ask me to side with someone who takes the side of Southie when it comes to busing and wanted to limit the scope of the Voters' Rights Act.

Oh, and then there's this:

The following year, Roberts argued against intervening in a sex discrimination case involving alleged disparities between training programs available to male and female prisoners in Kentucky. "If equal treatment is required, the end result in this time of tight state prison budgets may be no programs for anyone," he wrote.

"He basically implies that it would be too expensive to ensure equal treatment for women prisoners," said Debra Ness, president of the advocacy group Partnership for Women & Families. "The idea that financial interest would trump equality -- that's the same kind of thinking that reinforced a system of entrenched discrimination over decades."

Surrenderism in action, folks. Fuck John Roberts.
