Krymson Tyde: I've had several debates with a teatard cousin regarding the SCOTUS and constitutionality of laws.

Of course the same guy claims to have been a life-long democrat until some mysterious event in 2008 made him change parties.


That must have been a dark day

RexTalionis: Actually, a lot of Tea Party people I know subscribe to the belief that the Supreme Court can't decide on the constitutionality of laws because the Constitution never explicitly gave the Supreme Court that power.

You know what else was never explicitly in the Constitution? RON PAUL.

Just wait until the Supreme Court decides a matter in favor of the Republicans and it will all suddenly change to the Supreme Court being unchangeable and the law must be upheld because they said so.

Well, seeing as about half of congresscritters can't name the three branches of government that's not all that surprising of a fail...

ManateeGag: don't these people take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution?  how can they uphold and defend something they didn't actually read or comprehend.


Since most of them are Evangelical Fundamentalists, They've had a lot of practice in upholding and defending books they didn't actually read.

Krymson Tyde: Suoteme? WTF?


Suoteme is the cream that Scalia and Thomas use to soothe their burning butthurt over Obama's existence every night.

As much as I detest this guy's politics, I don't have a problem with drawing a distinction between "held constitutional"--or constitutional in the sense of being enforceable as a practical matter--and "constitutional" in the sense of actually conforming to the standards set out in the Constitution.


The courts are also tasked with determining criminal guilt, but I would certainly distinguish between a person who has been "found guilty" and a person who  is "guilty." And the same goes for any number of other questions--whether a shooting is "justified," whether behavior is "unethical," whether material is "obscene," and so on.

PreMortem: When a member of congress, or state legislature, says something like this so profoundly ignorant, they should be escorted out of the Capitol and forbidden from holding public office ever again.


In general, I like living in OKC, but our politicians keep getting dumber and more extreme. That's one of my biggest frustrations. That, and that people who I thought were intelligent keep electing these idiots.

Instead, it guarantees them election by the GOP for life.
