From Twitter:

Congress being asked to fix the VRA = that cop in "The Big Lebowski" being asked to look for "leads"

So, just what is an activist judge?

Is it the 5 or is it the 4?

I guess it's a lot like war crimes. If you win, it's not activism.

So gay marriage tomorrow? I'll bring the popcorn.

We need a few more like Alito. Who decided that justices are supposed to sit motionless when psychopaths like Ginsburg or Obama say something psychotic?

wow, what a petulant little prick.

Mentat: USCLaw2010: Holding continued:  The Court makes clear that: "Our decision in no way affects the permanent, nationwide ban on racial discrimination in voting found in [Section] 2. We issue no holding on [Section] 5 itself, only on the coverage formula. Congress may draft another formula based on current conditions"

Yeah, I'm sure Congress will get right on that.


Laserlike focus.

I remain convinced that the Court will decide the DOMA case on procedural grounds and avoid the merits entirely. The same may be true of the Prop 8 case as well.

Her words are as worthy of respectful attention as were his. Link

What? We can't make fun of batty old ladies?

You refer to Ruth Bader Ginsburg as "batty" at your peril. She could stare holes in adamantium-coated diamonds.


Plus, her cats would scratch your eyes out.

Well if he was high it would make his behavior more understandable, and if memory serves me Doritos are great when you are high, I mean I heard that dopers like Doritos, yeah that is what I meant.
 
2013-06-25 11:14:16 AM  
Alito is quite open in his opinion that women are not as fully human as men. We've known that since before he was confirmed. What we did not know is that he is also a big baby with no impulse control.

Clarence Thomas is happy that there is finally a worse justice on the bench.
 
2013-06-25 11:16:40 AM  

Hollie Maea: Thank you so much, George Bush, for giving us this young asshole who, much like your policies, will plague our nation for years after you are gone.


Alito ain't THAT young, and all that rage and hate does bad things to a man, twists up the vitals and taxes the heart, he's either going to have to mellow or he's be a fairly early replacement.   Scalia, for all his flaws, has mellowed CONSIDERBALY in the past decade which ois probably the only reason he;s still alive.
 
2013-06-25 11:20:50 AM  
I find him to be the most interesting person on the court. He doesn't take himself or those around him too seriously.
 
2013-06-25 11:21:48 AM  
Scalia may be a wrongheaded jerk, but he can be a funny wrongheaded jerk, and he and Ginsburg are good friends. It's good for the country if the members of the court can be polite/civil/friendly with each other, especially in a public setting.

I'm half expecting it to be kicked back to a lower court for re-evaluating on a different standards level or something along those lines.

If they do make an up or down decision on it, no matter what they decide the butthurt will be very strong for some time.

Yet this is exactly my criticism of her. In general, I agree with her and when she leaves I will miss her just like I miss Souter, who was often her ally. But the truth is that as soon as she starts thinking with her vagina her common sense flies right out the window. Normally, she is a "balls and strikes" kind of person but then all of a sudden becomes a "balls and vagina" person. It's disappointing.

Alito isn't gay. He's a card-carrying member of the He-Man Woman-Haters Cub.

Jesus.

I'm not super happy with that outcome, but it's not a disaster. It just means Congress has to step in and write a new preclearance formula.

Oh, wait. Congress has to do something now.

Congress couldn't agree that the sky is blue these days.


It's only blue on the Left side.

There's a difference between tempering your "idolization" of someone and being an outright asshole. You need to learn that distinction.

Yep, pretty sure we're farked.

While I acknowledge that the senator from where-ever-he's-from-istan may be correct in saying that the sky often has some blue in it, I believe that a careful study of the windows will show that today it is, in fact, a uniform gray. This unpredictability clearly would make his bill regarding the Hue of the Heavens a lethal vulnerability in our national defense.

/That bill will clearly require us to sleep in a tauntaun.

2013-06-25 02:08:57 PM  
Why do we not replace these f*cking idiots once every few years, again?  No one should ever receive a lifetime appointment to ANYTHING, much less something as critical to the country as SCOTUS.

Also, has anyone mentioned that Alito being a total dick shouldn't be a surprise to anyone?

You see, we have these things called social norms and respect for the office that mean that you don't roll your eyes and make faces like Chevy Chase when your colleague is speaking.  These behaviors allow us to function as a civilization despite our differences.

If you weren't such an aspie you might know that already.
 
2013-06-25 02:30:58 PM  
Prediction: DOMA and Prop. 8 get upheld. Their reasoning for Prop. 8 will be that it doesn't retroactively make gay marriages that happened previous to it invalid, so no one lost anything (?!). DOMA will be some "state rights" argument.
