U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is joking that hell be spending some time in an impregnable fortress after casting the decisive vote upholding President Barack Obamas health care law. Responding to a question about his summer plans, Roberts quipped that he thought his planned trip to Malta to teach a class was a good idea. He delivered the joke Friday at a federal court conference at a posh Pennsylvania resort. Roberts declined to answer a question about the landmark opinion issued Thursday. But he says he hopes the court will be remembered for protecting equal justice under the law. Roberts was speaking in Farmington, Pa., at a conference hosted by the Judicial Conference of the District of Columbia Circuit.

Roberts should resign in shame.
:: protecting equal justice under the law. ::
Ah that great ideal of communism, “equal justice”; where everyone shares the same miserable conditions of poverty and servitude.
You aren’t funny, Roberts, you POS!!
He killed his “legacy” and he knows it.
Shun the bastard at public events. Persona non grata. A total failure.
His "legacy" will be the "Roberts Tax."
Oh yah....he’s a real comedian.
What does this monstrosity have to do with equal justice?
Congress has exempted themselves from this equal justice. Do the justices have to go before death panels? How about SEIU members or illegals who get it all without having to pay for it? Tell me more about equal justice.
Losing one's liberty isn't funny, Justice Roberts.
But keep cracking wise - you don't have to live in the world you and the progressives are creating for the rest of us.
Michael Savage is right...This guy’s epilepsy meds were warping his mind and still are. This POS thinks its all a goof
Very funny, you miserable traitor.
To add insult to injury, he apparently considers this a joking matter.
Yuckin’ it up with other federal judges...
Roberts shot his legitimacy in the butt pretty good too.
He thinks creating institutionalized slavery is protecting equal justice under the law. A law where not all citizens are expected to pay equally and some not at all? He truly is insane and twisted.
He is not even brave enough to be honest. Anyone who actually thought he was coerced or trying to do some underhanded favor to the cause of freedom should think twice now. He has gone in front of the press with this drivel which means he is proud of what he has done.
Bingo! What it really means is not justice, but oppression.
Its hard to hide when you will be attending all those cocktail parties that you willn now be invited to Jonny.
Can you hide from Karma?
T’ain’t funny, McGee.
Damn, all along I thought they were supposed to interpret and uphold the Constitution of the United States. Must have been those ancient history classes I took in high school.
