When you don't have any real ammo on a judicial nominee, it looks like "gaydar" and adoption conspiracy theories are what's left.
Here are a few quote and links to some nuts at Daily Kos who thinks that Judge Roberts may be gay because he married late and his children are adopted. Thankfully, it appears that many people commenting don't agree.
"Is he someone who has any serious problems in the closet. Is he a closeted gay guy who takes homophobic positions in public to make himself look more straight? Are there any serious complaints about how he's treated his wife or children?"
"I don't have a highly refined gaydar but what there is of it goes off when I see pictures of Roberts.
Allowing his son to be dressed like that on national television also strikes me as someone with an "out of the mainstream" fashion sense.
The late marriage and adopted kids also makes it look like he is putting on a show. He certainly isn't a breeder himself."
"Did you see Roberts' two little blonde children at his Bush introduction? They are adopted.
He married at 41 to a female attorney who works in an anti-choice group. They apparently couldn't have children on their own, so they got two picture-perfect ones somewhere.
Where did the children they adopted come from? Private adoption? A "save the babies" outfit associated with the anti-choice movement? An outfit that finds home for cute blond babies in good Catholic homes?
When did the adoptions take place? Was the arrangement "assisted" by his Republican friends in any way? There are more ways to get a payoff for services rendered than a briefcase full of cash. He did his work for the Bush 2000 campaign gratis - what did he get in return?"
"Married at 41
Two adopted kids
My gaydar is tingling"
"Both Children Adopted
I wonder how long he had to wait for blonds."
"open for discussion- is he gay?
most guys who are that political and that ambitious don't wait that long to get married. i also note his kids are adopted. yes, i know that doesn't prove anything. but, frankly, it caught my eye."
