We can’t count liberal Roberts as a conservative anymore.
Check it out:
Here’s the problem: John Roberts is now officially the weakest link. If Roberts softened his stance on Obamacare, there’s a strong chance Proposition 8 will be overturned and same sex couples will be eligible for the benefits traditional married couples currently enjoy. After John ‘Judas’ Roberts voted ‘yea’ for Obamacare, his stamp of approval being put on same sex marriage isn’t hard to envision.
Moreover now, in addition to protecting his reputation and that of the court, Roberts has to make sure he doesn’t offend his lesbian cousin Jean Podrasky, who will be in the audience to add authenticity to the proceedings. Cousin Jean lives in San Francisco with her partner, Grace Fasano. Seated in the area reserved for the family and guests of the honorable Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. will be the hopefully future Mrs. and Mrs. Podrasky-Fasano (or Fasano-Podrasky), Jean’s sister, and her niece.
In the gay community Jean is becoming a celebrity in her own right. Podrasky even wrote a guest column about being related to the chief justice for the San Francisco-based National Center for Lesbian Rights. In the piece Jean wrote, “Everyone in this country has a family member who is part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community,” so that should count for something. Jean also said, “As a Californian, I want nothing more than to marry my wonderful girlfriend. And as a tax-paying citizen, I seek basic fairness.”
