I'm going with Roberts, just because he's the closest thing to a moderate (I think ???) on the Court...and I'm a moderate so ummm yeah ;)

yeah, he's moderate


and watson - you better do some detective work


i think maybe your answers and your ideas aren't quite in line

i dunno about that.  i like to think of myself as a strict constructionist, and i'm in favor of limiting the power of government.  i also don't like deriving rights from the constitution that are not explicitly stated. 

to be fair, roberts probably IS closer to where i am, but i put ideological similarity as a second reason.  i still think that scalia has more fun on the bench than roberts ever will.  ;)

Scalia does have more fun, ever read any of his opinions?  They're hilarious - every other paragraph he refers to the "opposing" justices as doofs,etc  :P

STOP FENCE SITTING!  :D

Alright, alright...SOUTER!  He doesn't seem to give a *&^% about what anyone thinks (and he usually votes liberal ;) ).

i predict that thomas will get zero votes.

LOL, I'm not sure, but I hope so! :D

he doesn't even give a sh*t about what the Founders think




What I understand is that ANYONE can find a founder with their beliefs.

Kennedy is a Souter-lite. I like how he said there was a right to your own bed and that children should not be sacrificed....that was funny.

Lol, okay, looking back at it that was pretty funny.  I didn't see what it was in response to, so I took it more seriously.  You're pardoned (this time)! ;)
