It's Roberts!

50 year-old Judge John G. Roberts, an appelate jurist on the DC Circuit is President Bush's choice to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court.

The networks all rushed the info to air in order to beat President Bush's 9P ET announcement.

Roberts is considered to be very conservative on most issues, including the major litmus test, abortion.

Network anchors across the dial have been bemoaning the appointment, emphasizing that Roberts would replace O'Connor as the swing vote on the court in many 5-4 decisions, and that with his young age, that he would likely sit on the Supreme Court for 30 years or more.

Though the moonbats on Capitol Hill have yet to weigh in, you know they will as the night progresses. And I'm certain that they're upset beyond belief. Needless to say, the confirmation battle promises to be epic.

B5 fans will understand when I say "And so...it begins..."
