Rumor no sooner heard than shot down.

So did you hear the one about John Roberts resigning from the Supreme Court?

(That link does not go to the sites that boosted their traffic by reporting this rumor. It goes to my Google search for the rumor.)

ADDED: David Lat traces the rumor to a lawprof.

With what's going on, I think you'd have to take him out on his shield.

That's the trouble with supermarket tabloids scooping the big city dailies -- thinking that that "radaronline.com" actually has a pipeline to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court doesn't seem so farfetched.

Meanwhile back at DNC headquarters, paramedics had to be called-in due to everyone passing out from gigantic-multiple orgasms!

Hopefully debunked in time before some commenters here autoerotic asphyxiated. It's been such a bad for them, who knows how they would have reacted.

What exactly does John Roberts want? Joaquin... Did you watch 300 on TV last night. The Spartan's King Leonidas told Xerxes that he would discover that a man claiming to be god could bleed. Then Xerxes threatened to attack the Spartan women , and Leonidas warned him that he was under estimating Spartan women too. Interesting leadership indeed. Where can that be found today?

'such a bad year for them,' he meant to say.

Not in the US, TradGuy! Maybe in some Israeli settlements?

It had something to do with Gov. Patterson.

Hey, I get them confused all the time. Easy mistake!

Joaquin...If not in the lower 48, maybe an Alaskan can challenge the Hawaiian god to an ultimate cage fight.

Never let a crisis go to waste as Rahm likes to say.

Correction to earlier comment:

It had something to do with Gov. Patterson.

Besides, it wasn't in the Enquirer so not trustworthy.

Well, that hateful, angry, bitter, mean conservative Republican refused to hear an emergency appeal of the Gay Rights Ordinance in DC.

I guess the libtards don't have the decency to commend him for it. They would rather start scurrilous rumors.

Well, the link doesn't come back to althouse, either, so I guess this is true ...

See what happens when you leave the WiFi on during class?

At least the kids were listening to the prof.

But we didn't discuss informant reliability till crim pro. Or was it evidence?
