Job of the Week: Supremes Looking for Mouthpiece

Supremecourt_1The Highest Court in the Land is looking for a new member of its PR team, presumably to work under the Court's Supreme Flacktress Kathy Arberg.  True, the justices are notoriously press-shy, but then again John Roberts is giving press conferences and releasing oral argument transcripts just hours afterwards...so perhaps the Court needs an additional body to help manage all this newfound openness.  Courtesy of K Street Project:
