Toby of bilious young fogey fisks an attempted Times hatchet job on John Roberts' record as a lawyer in 1981-1986.
The article in question finds that Roberts is a conservative. Sometimes even more conservative than "his prominent superiors." Indeed, author David E. Rosenbaum seems most put out by the fact that Roberts, a 26-year-old pipsqueak, disagreed with people "who clearly outranked" him. Impertinent little upstart!
