WashPost: Confirm Roberts

In a somewhat surprising move yesterday, the Washington Post made a (half assed) case for confirming Roberts. Here are the highlights (the rest is mostly gobbledygook):

JOHN G. ROBERTS JR. should be confirmed as chief justice of the United States. He is overwhelmingly well-qualified, possesses an unusually keen legal mind and practices a collegiality of the type an effective chief justice must have. He shows every sign of commitment to restraint and impartiality. Nominees of comparable quality have, after rigorous hearings, been confirmed nearly unanimously. We hope Judge Roberts will similarly be approved by a large bipartisan vote.

If a paper with a liberal bent, like the Washington Post, can see the wisdom in confirming Roberts, you’d think Sen. Mark Dayton would as well. Make sure that you contact Dayton’s office and urge him to support Roberts.

Oh yes, this is MORE evidence that the damn media has huge liberal bias! The liberal Washington Post sees the wisdom!!!!
