Best Reaction So Far

Award for best John Roberts reaction goes to Vodkapundit, hands down. First, there is this monumental piece of honesty that came last night:
Yeah, I'll have something on John Roberts here before long.

In the meantime, here's the short version: Who?

You gotta love a blogger who just admits they have no idea who someone in the news is. I admit it was definitely my first reaction. Then Mr. Green continues today on his vodka-fueled commentary:
There's no fun to be had with John Roberts. Look at his picture, and he could be an orthodontist giving a commencement speech. Hell, even his name is dull. But what about his legal stuff? You got me.


Blogs for Bush has a roundup of conservative blogger reaction to Roberts. The response is almost uniformly positive. Correction – almost uniformly ecstatic. What's all the excitement about? Meanwhile, the usual crackpots are cracking the usual pots. What are they so upset about? Meanwhile, saner people are taking a wait-and-see attitude.

There's also a lot about how John Roberts is a cipher, a flip-flopper, GWB got what he said he was going to get, etc., etc. All in all, Green proves himself again to be one of the most independent don't-give-a-shit-about partisan koolaid, what color it is, or what it tastes like. Stick with the vodka.
