Supreme Court nominee John Roberts donated his legal services, when he was a corporate attorney, to gay rights activists challenging a voter-approved Colorado initiative that permitted employers and landlords to discriminate against gays and lesbians. So what are all the Supreme Court brawlers going to say about this? One small social conservative outfit -- Public Advocate -- has already called on Roberts to "correct the record or withdraw" as the nominee. But I wonder if the more significant social conservative organizations will swallow hard and stick with Bush's man. If they do, that ought to be fun to watch.
