In Which I get Justice John G. Roberts’ Number Pegged

I was reading on another blog a post asking if readers’ kids had watched the inauguration and events at school. The most common reply was yes, they’d taken a 1/2 hour out of studies and they saw nothing wrong with it as it’s history.

A half hour? Hell, we took the whole day. We started watching at 9:20 a.m., all three of us squished together in the bed. And we talked about everything.

As Justice Roberts took the stage, before he began I considered how he must feel about this, how he might feel about swearing in Obama, and I said out loud, “Choke on it, Roberts.”

Then I felt immediately kind of bad that I’d said it and wished I hadn’t.

And then he did choke on it.
