John Roberts, Dancing Machine.

Meet John Roberts, Dancing Machine:


Last night, John Roberts' son, also named John (Jack being his nickname), was apparently dancing during the beginning of the President's announcement, prompting Roberts' wife Jane to take the kids off the stage. The dance party also prompted President Bush to "smirk" a bit during the announcement, which, for whatever reason, really bothers certain people on both the left and right.

A funny picture. I am sure John III is a good kid, just a little excited, maybe up beyond his bed time. If I were John G. Roberts, Jr. (the one that was just nominated), I would frame this picture and put it on my wall. It's a true "Kodak moment."

They'll all probably get a good laugh out of it one day, if they already haven't done so.


GOP Vixen has another dance party picture.

As a father of 4 and 2 year old boys, that is greatness. I love that kids can be so oblivious to convention which plays out even better in Washington.

He's a dancing machine!

I never noticed before Bush moving his jaw kind of like John Wayne, after completing his sentences. It wasn't a smirk though.

My guess is that he knows he has a winner in Roberts. I hope he's right.

I'm sure I'm not the first to point this out, but does this remind anyone of Guiliani's kid's antics at one of his speeches - later immortalized by Chris Farley in an SNL skit?

That is adorable!

He's a good dancer!...

Anyone who has ever put a 4 year old into clean Sunday clothes after 9 at night could have told you what was going to happen...Especially if one of them is going to be where people were going to be watching him or her. John Sr. seemed to take it in good humor, even if Jane didn't at that moment.

For all we know, that expression could have come from being thisclose to a camera on national television. Stranger things have happened.

As for Bush? That smirk everyone's talking about says one thing, "I remember when ___________ (fill in the name of your favorite Bush twin) pulled that on me."

You just know about a million Republicans around the country were doing the exact same thing in front of their televisions. Ahhhha yeeeaaaaaa.

Yeah!... I feel like dancing too! He was just happy that his Dad was nominated... I think we all should get up and dance!

He looks like someone I know... Hmmmmm! Who could it be????

Funny as hell!
