2005_07_davidbrooks.jpgThanks for the morning giggles, David Brooks! The NY Times Op-Ed columnist's valentine (literally!) to Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is dripping with hearts and little cupids with arrows and birds singing... If Brooks could have composed it in Shakespearan verse, Gothamist suspects he might have. Here's the opening:

Roberts nomination, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee with the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee because this is the way government is supposed to work.

Judge Roberts, David Brooks would totally choo-choo-choose you! We also laugh because we're sure some conservatives would say loving a nomination is not in the Bible.

Did anyone else find it funny that the President admonished a possible Supreme Court Justice nominee for not cross-training? Gothamist shouldn't find it so funny, but we do.
