Chief Supreme Court Justice John Roberts apparently gave the Notre Dame Fighting Irish a behind closed doors pep talk before the Notre Dame/ Michigan battle, says the Wall Street Journal.
Since Notre Dame amazingly won, I’m just wondering if Roberts should give more pep talks, maybe even going in and giving Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito a real stirring one. “Our opponent today, they say, is pretty good. The Roe V Waders have been on top us Originalists for over thirty years. But today is a new day. We’re gonna go constructionist on them and they won’t know what hit them. They’re gonna’ throw precedent at us! They’re gonna scream ‘stare decisis.’ They’ll invent the right to privacy. But nobody and I mean nobody pushes around our Constitution. Let’s go out there and take our country back! Let’s go!” They all run out the door screaming and Scalia starts a pushing and shoving match with Kennedy in the tunnel. Thomas stares down Ginsburg. John Paul Stevens is too frightened and runs back to his office, refusing to come out for hours.
