Opening doors for the memory-challenged
Evidently, being in a leadership role is not a very memorable experience. Or maybe Shrub felt that it was important to open up Supreme Court positions to those with disabilities such as being memory-challenged. Because it seems that Mr. "I-can't-remember" John G. Roberts Jr. not only belonged to the Federalist Society, but was in the conservative legal organization's 1997-1998 leadership directory (WaPo). Now I know nothing about this secretive organization, but doesn't it count as a strike against the nominee's character that he use such a lame fib when asked about it? Is this the type of person who will uphold the Constitution with integrity, unaffected by his personal views? Or will he also find it difficult to remember certain passages of the Constitution and other legal precedents as he hears cases?
