I love it: John Roberts hates Michael Jackson as much as I do!

Since the Washington Post doesn't have anything else to do, and since they are desperate to get some dirt on Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, they have published an article about 3 of his memos while working for the Reagan administration that condemn the presidential act of giving an award to Michael Jackson for his work against drunk driving. I love this part in particular:
"If one wants the youth of America and the world sashaying around in garish sequined costumes, hair dripping with pomade, body shot full of female hormones to prevent voice change, mono-gloved, well, then, I suppose 'Michael,' as he is affectionately known in the trade, is in fact a good example. Quite apart from the problem of appearing to endorse Jackson's androgynous life style, a Presidential award would be perceived as a shallow effort by the President to share in the constant publicity surrounding Jackson. . . . The whole episode would, in my view, be demeaning to the President."
