Roberts Outed!!

Gasp! John Roberts may have been a member of the Federalist Society, reports the Washington Post in an agitated front page article. The Progress and Freedom Foundation's Randy May does the take-down here.

This is the type of ridiculous substitution for debate that I think is slowly driving most centrist Americans - and I think most Americans are centrists - to give up on politics. And it is also the type of stupid, politically motivated reporting that is slowly making most centrist Americans give up on traditional press entities like the Post as well.

Neither trend bodes well for our Republic.
