Most Americans can’t identify the chief justice

 

I would be willing to bet coin of the realm that many of people who don’t know that John Roberts is chief justice of the United States are also self-styled experts on what’s constitutional and what’s not.

The story on this chart is HERE.

  1. I bet many of them are card carrying democrats.

  2. doc: What the hell is a card-carrying Democrat? In some states — Illinois, for example — voters don’t register as members of a political party. Hence, their voter cards don’t identify them as either Republicans or Democrats.

    And frankly, I’d be surprised that you knew Roberts was chief justice before I told you. After all, your knowledge of court matters and the Constitution is notoriously lacking.

    I’m reminded of the time you said here that the shouting-down of political speakers is merely an exercise of First Amendment rights, rather than a violation of them. And you said that anyone who disagrees with you on that point must have gone to school in Moscow.

  3. To be recognized Roberts needs to go on DWTS.

    Sadly, Justice Roberts will likely get another thirty years to become infamous for his poor jurisprudence. He is a political idealogue unsuited for the role of Chief.

    The Chief Justice position should rotate every two years. One person wielding that much power for several generations is not a good idea, especially considering the clowns we put in the Senate Judiciary committee.

    If elected Romney will likely nominate his chief economic advisor Ann to the next open court seat, and she would still serve us better than Clarence Tom.

  5. Ah yes, classic liberal spew from Mr. C.

    For all you know, I have a picture of Chief Justice Roberts framed in my office, but of course you wouldn’t want to address my actual point.

    So I will ask you directly: What percentage of those who could not identify the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court do you think voted for Obama in the last election?

  6. doc: Let’s not be silly. I never guessed at what percentage “of people who don’t know that John Roberts is chief justice of the United States are also self-styled experts on what’s constitutional and what’s not.” I merely guessed that “many” were.

    If you want to think that many were Democrats, feel free.

  7. You guess, I guess, this is a fun and pointless game.

    And now we have clearly demonstrated that this post was nonsense.

    Unless you like to play games.
