Ann Coulter and Justice John Roberts

Here is a link to Ann Coulter's column about John Roberts when was nominated to the Supreme Court in 2005:

Here is a quote from that column:

But unfortunately, other than that, we don’t know much about John Roberts. Stealth nominees have never turned out to be a pleasant surprise for conservatives. Never. Not ever.

Here are some quotes from my own blogpost from July 20, 2005:

If we end up with another Souter, Kennedy or O'Connor (or Stevens, Blackmun, Powell, Brennan, Warren, etc. - all Republican appointments) we should recognize that the fault lies with the blogosphere in the first place. We had the means to influence the nomination prior to the nominee being selected. Instead, we waited and discussed various choices as if we were betting on a horse. We should have turned our blogs into megaphones for a few selected strict constructionist candidates. We should have advocated and discussed strict constructionism the way we are discussing it today.

[Useless trivia - the last time we had a Supreme Court Justice named Roberts, things didn't turn out so well. If you don't know what I am talking about, figure it out before the next nominee is announced. I think you have at least one year to look it up.]
