Grilling Judge Roberts

Disappointed that John Roberts is well-prepared for his confirmation hearings and likely much smarter than his interrogators, New York Times columnist John Tierney has a suggested line of questioning which could be used to trip up the nominee.
After seeing a judge's robes in a Gilbert and Sullivan production, Chief Justice Rehnquist added gold stripes to his robe. If confirmed, will you keep the stripes, or do you have a whole new look in mind?

From your analysis of constitutional history, would you classify James Madison as a dog person or a cat person?

Suppose you'd been in Solomon's place when he proposed cutting the baby in two. And suppose neither woman objected. Would you have cut the baby? Flipped a coin? Or opted for foster care?

Would it be a violation of Lois Lane's so-called right to privacy if Superman used his X-ray vision to look through her clothes?

During the announcement of your nomination at the White House, your son distracted the president with an impromptu dance. When you got home that night, what happened to him?

When justices have birthday parties, should they invite all the other justices, or can they invite just the ones they like?

Ashley or Mary-Kate?

Your passion for correct grammar and syntax is well known, but you have yet to inform the American people of your position on the serial comma. In the phrase "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," should there be a comma after "liberty"?

How would you edit this sentence to make it grammatically correct?: "I swear I ain't never gonna overturn Roe v. Wade."
With the roster of clowns doing the questioning of Roberts, Tierney's line of questioning wouldn't be any worse than what he'll get and would probably be more entertaining. The above was just a sample, go read the rest.

Separately, when did the question "Mary Ann or Ginger?" get replaced by "Ashley or Mary-Kate?"
