Judge accused of... conservativism

*dun dun DUN!*

The association of John G. Roberts with a staunchly right-wing legal group is at issue

WASHINGTON -- The first hiccup in the carefully crafted rollout of Supreme Court nominee John Roberts emerged yesterday over whether he ever joined an obscure Washington-based legal society - one where members often are known for strongly held conservative views.

*breath catches in throat*

Not... not... strongly held conservative views? Dubya, say it ain't so! For the love of God, I thought you were going to pick a uniter, not a divider!

Membership in the Federalist Society would almost indisputably label a lawyer conservative, as the group's founding mission in 1982 was to combat what it viewed as creeping liberal activism in the nation's courts.

*sobs wildly*
