Kathryn Jean Lopez has a question
she wants posed to John Roberts (link via Glenn
"I'd like to know if Star Trek had an influence on John Roberts and, if so, what that influence was."
Here are some responses I don't want to hear:
- "It is a good day to die."
- "Strength is irrelevant. Resistance is futile. We wish to improve ourselves. We will add your distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service ours."
- "My position on Roe? How much latinum is it worth to you?"
- "Please state the nature of the legal emergency."
- "From hell's heart, I stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee."
- "Setting dissent on stun."
- "Don't push your luck, pinkskin!"
- "Engaging cloaking device." [dodging a question]
- "Red alert! Raise shields!" [more dodging]
- "Beam me out of here!" [yet more dodging]
- "Really, Mr. Senator, you emotions will become your undoing."
Okay, maybe I do want to hear that last one.
