This is the second funniest thing I have read all day:
John Kerry may not be president, but his powers of observation are unrivaled:
From: John Kerry [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Wednesday, July 20, 2005 1:37 PM
Subject: No Sandra Day O'Connor!
This much is clear already. Judge Roberts is no Sandra Day O'Connor.
True enough — if he were Sandra Day O’Connor, it wouldn’t have made much sense to pick him for the Supreme Court, since she’s, you know, retiring.
But maybe they’ve got more in common than Kerry thinks. After all, O’Connor dated Chief Justice William Rehnquist at Stanford law school. And Roberts? Well, he worked on Rehnquist’s briefs back in the ’80s.
People are feeling punchy today.
Sorry to have to state the obvious, but perhaps the relevant point here is that Bush replaced a woman justice with a man (pardon my obvious sense of irony).
Anyway, this is tantamount to you being offered a sugar substitute in a restaurant that actually turns out to be salt. We can only hope that if you complained about this poor “substitution”, that the restaurant staff wouldn’t be snickering away in the back over you being “punchy”.
No silly, this was the point:
A silly underwear joke. Which is why, of course, this was filed under HUMOR.
Hehe. Renquist’s briefs. Roberts likes touching men’s underpants. hehe.
It was a long way to go for the punchline — but worth it!! Classic.
Thanks for sharing.

Not only did he work on Rehnquist’s briefs, but I heard he also was JOCKEYING for a position on the Court.
