Like Butch said to Sundance - who are those guys?

How Appealing has this post and Southern Appeal has this post on the results of a survey asking Americans to name the nine members of the Supreme Court of the United States.

These stories bring to mind the joke told by Senator Wampler at the swearing-in of Judge Elizabeth McClanahan, something about the two brothers, one decided to become a missionary doctor in Africa and the other was elected Vice-President of the United States, and it was said of both when they left home to start their new jobs that they would never be heard from again. I'm not exactly sure what Senator Wampler was saying about the position of judge on the Virginia Court of Appeals, but he did say that he expected that Judge McClanahan would be heard from again.
