What does Roberts' wife do?
I thought I heard someone say that she heads some anti-abortion group, but can't remember where. I think it might have been on Randi's show today but can't recall...can anyone confirm this?

(my apologies if this has already been discussed)

2. Feminists for Life?
WTF is that supposed to mean? Is "feminist" like their new code-word for Stepford Wife?

Supreme Court nominee Roberts' lawyer wife facilitates global satellite system projects and her firm is targeting Iraq reconstruction

By Margie Burns
Online Journal Contributing Writer


July 21, 2005Yet another first for our boundary-breaching White House: for the first time in American history, we're going to have a justice on the high court whose spouse facilitates financing and putting together global satellite systems.

Also, the firm in which she is a partner, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, emphasizes among other things its expertise in facilitating business in Iraq:

"We offer one-stop service to clients pursuing projects in Iraq, from solicitation and RFP counseling to working with key government and multilateral agencies, and from initially penetrating the Iraqi marketplace to final project implementation. Our attorneys are recognized as leaders in their fields, and at the cutting-edge in a variety of disciplines relevant to Iraq reconstruction. A number have served in senior government positions in key agenciesincluding the Departments of Transportation, Navy, Justice and Commerce, as well as the Agency for International Development (USAID) and the World Bank."

9. She cooks.
She makes babies.
She cleans.
She irons.
She raises her children.
She teaches her children.

I don't know her name.
But all the people close to her call her Ofjohn.

15. Ha! Ha! John Stewart did a piece on "Dancing Jack"
showing photos of little Jack dancing at the SOTU address, the debates, etc., and said that's why Bush was such a poor orator- he was distracted by "Dancing Jack".
