does anyone seriously wonder how the pledge of allegiance can be thought unconsitutional when the Supreme Court oath itself ends with, "So help me God"?

There is absolutely NO reason to believe he is anything similar to Souter, let alone a Souter clone.

"Geez, I barely got it up in time....LOL."

I saw your thread and then didn't see any responses, so I thought maybe somebody else had beat you to it. I scrolled through the page and didn't see another thread, so came back to ol' reliable Howlin.

I wonder if Justice Roberts will retain the "gold strips" on his robe that Renquist wore?

Anyway, they are a BEAUTIFUL family! I'm so proud of them.

Even Ann Coulter has started to back off the Souter comparison. Roberts appears to be rock solid. In the same mold as Rhenquist, if not slightly to his right. Time will tell, but I think Roberts will be outstanding.
