More on John Roberts

The Pensito Review blog took note of a retraction from the conservative talk show host Joe Scarborough. He reported that John Roberts was against Roe v. Wade and would vote to overturn it. Apparently, Karl Rove did not like to hear this and within minutes the White House was on the phone with the show. Scarborough ran this half-hearted retraction:

Well, last night, we reported that on the show. And our banner actually said “Roberts: Overturn Roe v. Wade.’ Well, the White House called us up during the show. They didn’t like the banner. They said, we owe—we should—we should offer a correction. That is what I am going to do tonight.

So, conservatives, Republicans, members of Focus on the Family, Dr. James Dobson, Pat Robertson, pro-life advocates across America, I offer you this correction. According to the White House, Judge Roberts does not oppose Roe vs. Wade. Whew. Glad I got that off my chest.

Robert Doesn't know why he was listed as a member of the ultra-conservative group The Federalist Society.
