The media seem to have settled on one name, John Roberts, which means it will be him or the administration is playing a needlessly provocative game of gotcha with an ill-tempered press.

If it is Roberts, he looks to be a good choice for Bushistas insofar as he will be tough to beat; the first bios (here and here) describe him as a rock-ribbed conservative, but one that is seen as very smart and not particularly zealous by friends and foes alike. Not even close to the Antichrist that it would have taken to get Lindsey Graham to utter the word "extraordinary."

Which may not be a completely terrible thing for our side. The less controversy the pick generates, the faster we can get Unca Karl back to the front pages, where he belongs.
