I Would Like To Be The Next Clerk of the Supreme Court

As all SCOTUS watchers know, General Suter, the long time Clerk of the Supreme Court, has announced that he will soon be retiring from the position.  The Court, presumably acting through Chief Justice Roberts, will have to appoint General Suter's successor.  Indeed, maybe it already has, I don't know.  But if it hasn't, I would like to officially put my name forward as a replacement.  I really like the Court, and I could give entertaining lectures about it to visitors and schoolchildren, and I'm a tremendous filer, and, most importantly, I look great in a morning coat.

Call me, Chief.

Given Mr. Suter's basketball skills, I think a natural successor, if not Jay Wexler, would be Clyde Drexler.

Hooray! And thank you. I can't wait!

And just so you know: You will never have to question my commitment to Sparkle Motion. Or to my role as Clerk's clerk. Ever.

Dear SparkleMotion, I like your style! And yes, under 28 USC 671, the Clerk does get to hire assistants. So, consider your application filed!

Does the Clerk have clerks?

If so, will you please treat this as an application to be your Clerk's clerk, (soon to be) Clerk Wexler?
