Roberts Takes
He's probably not as funny as Kozinski, but here Roberts said "The panel's approach in this case leads to the result that regulating the taking of a hapless toad that, for reasons of its own, lives its entire life in California constitutes regulating 'Commerce ... among the several States.'"

That's not too bad. Plus, it looks like he takes the commerce clause seriously.

However, I think he might be a Souter -- little judicial trackrecord, but just enough that he seems able to cross to the other side. For instance, "Roberts, as an advocate, also represented liberal positions, arguing in favor of affirmative action, against broad protections for property rights, and on behalf of prisoners' rights." (from quote on Insta that I can't get into directly). If so, he would just be another in a long line of messed up nominations by Reps.

UPDATE: Ann Coulter seems to agree with me, but she's as caustic as usual: "The only way a supreme court nominee could win the approval of NARAL and Planned Parenthood would be to actually perform an abortion during his confirmation hearing, live, on camera, and preferably a partial birth one."
