Althouse and Wonkette can read between the lines.

And I think professor Althouse and Wonkette might be on to something regarding this NY Times article:

Court Nominee's Life Is Rooted in Faith and Respect for Law


John Roberts went to private school, first next door to his family's parish at Notre Dame, and then to an all-boys boarding school, La Lumiere, a bucolic retreat on a pond in nearby LaPorte.

No girls around. That's okay. It's good for a young man. Right?

Guys rolling around on mats. No big deal.

John Roberts was also on the student council executive committee (he lost the race for senior class president to his best friend), the student activities committee, the editorial board of The Torch student newspaper and the drama club.

Drama club? THE TORCH? Flame on. Wait, there's more:

The school yearbook from 1972, his junior year, shows he played Peppermint Patty in the production of "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown."

Peppermint Patty? So he played a girl in a play who may or may not have been a pre-lesbian. Nothing weird about that.

Check out the pictures in the article too. Althouse also notes that he married his wife when they were in their forties and adopted their children. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • Wow, sounds like he turned forty and said to himself "Jeez, Waterlilly..." (because that's what he calls himself) "...Waterlilly, you best get yourself a woman, some kids, and a seat on the DC Circuit or people are gonna start thinking your queer!"
