Sweet sassy molassey! There’s a huge scoop coming out of our nation’s capital right now, and amazingly it’s not being broken by Politico! According to celebrity rumor rag Radar Online, Chief Justice John Roberts — the guy with the adorable kids and really inconvenient epilepsy — is considering stepping down from the court. Yeah, we’ll believe this one when it actually happens, but, for what it’s worth, here’s the scoop:
John Roberts, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, is seriously considering stepping down from the nation’s highest court for personal reasons, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Roberts, known for his conservative judicial philosophy, has served on the Supreme Court since 2005, having been nominated by President George W. Bush after the death of former Chief William Rehnquist.
RadarOnline.com has been told that Roberts, 55, could announce his decision at any time.
Proving that they do more than cover celebrities, Radar throws this juicy nugget in at the end of the story:
The decision paves the way for President Barack Obama to make his second appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court following his first, Sonia Sotomayor.
That’s some good police work there, Lou.
Anyway, John Roberts is toast. Five dollars says Obama names a huge corporation to fill his seat…ya know, because he can now.
