Is Supreme Nominee Roberts a Cross-Dresser?


The NY Times and elsewhere reports that the man played Peppermint Patty in a school production of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. Note: He was a junior in high school at the time.

More details here.

If nothing else (and assuming he gets confirmed), Roberts could lend his pipes to Antonin Scalia's frequent show-tune singing.

  1. Should cross-dressing as a butch lesbian really count?

  2. He was at an all-boys school, so Lucy and Sally were probably also guys. I heard a rumor that Rick Santorum played Snoopy though…

  3. Not that it matters much, but is Roberts’ middle name “Edgar?”

  4. When he is confirmed and up on the bench, I want to see him fall asleep, bang his head, and then yell “I’m AWAKE!!”

  5. Senator Kennedy’s first question to Roberts: “Wah wah, wah wah-wah-wah?”

  6. Hey, I was a cross-dressing movie producer in my senior class play! Lay off!!!

    (I played him as a cross between Ed Wood and Dino De Laurentis.)

  7. At our all-boys school, we brought in girls from the all-female school up the road. But hey..whatever floats the man’s boat.

  8. At least he played a girl who was called “Sir” a lot.

  9. “Is Supreme Nominee Roberts a Cross-Dresser?”

    Isn’t “transvestite” the appropriate term?

    …That’s another point for the Bush Administration’s record on diversity.

  10. At least he didn’t play Lucy.

  11. Hey, Roberts could pistol-whip an old lady in broad daylight and it wouldn’t matter to the mighty righties; he’s their boy.

    (Don’t get me wrong: at this time I’m inclined to support Roberts for the bench myself, but it’s a conclusion I came to on my own, in spite of, not because of, the endorsements from the Sean Hannitys of the world…)

  12. Should cross-dressing as a butch lesbian really count?

    Peppermint Patty had a crush on Charlie Brown (a.k.a. “Chuck”); ergo, not a lesbian.

  13. I think she was supposed to be sort of a beatnik.
