Goddamn. Ginsberg is trolling the right.

Where's my damn popcorn?

She's hands down the best mind on the bench.  Of course, she's also getting up there in years.  She might as well have some fun while she can.

Did she quit?

Nobody tells me anything.

feckingmorons: Did she quit?

No, there's just been talk about her maybe stepping down while Obama is in office and control of the senate is a sure thing so that an appropriate replacement can be confirmed without GOP meddling, but I doubt it will happen.  The Democrats should hold the Senate through midterms and unless something changes dramatically in the GOP they don't have a shot in taking the White House in '16.

Um, the headline said Ex-justice

/I think you're always a justice as long as you're alive, just a retired justice if you quit.

Anyone got the over/under how many sites are going to call this an outrage and over reach of Judicial power?

In the meantime: good on her. About gottverdammt time. All God's chill'uns gots to dance, kids. They just don't all dance to the same tune. Keep your dancing shoes on, and don't be afraid of the cha-cha just because you prefer to stroll...

Well this is just awesome! I'm totally straight, but I'd go gay just to say I had a supreme court justice officiate at my wedding!

These progressives are just consumed by the samer weddings. Nothing else matters. Many progressives have died of starvation recently because they forgot about food while thinking about the awesomeness of men marrying men and women marrying women.

Next up: Ginsburg officiates at the marriage of Mitch McConnell to one of his own.

Ginsberg is known as the ass-kicker in the SCOTUS gym. After beating cancer twice,

She should retire while Obama can nominate a successor and then sock Scalia in the face while kicking Roberts in the balls.

Not to be a right wing troll, but can federal justices officiate marriages seeing as how marriage isn't a federal offense?

People marrying others of the same gender doesn't bother me a bit, but I think you might be in need of some jive correction therapy.

Wow, Ginsburg just proved that she's the ultimate troll. It's RBG's world, we just live in it.
 
2013-08-31 01:29:22 AM
This is great. Maybe this will cause a couple of the more reactionary pigs on the Supreme Court to have strokes, and you can replace them with decent human beings.

It actually makes it look like the whole samer wedding thing is all about tweaking breeders and it sort of makes the case that it's more of a political ActUp thing than something more substantial . This is why Ginsburg would claim that it's just a coincidence about the name of the groom, or whatever you call a dude in a dude/dude wedding.

I guess it might sorta seem like that, if you were completely insane.

It would have been cooler if it had been the other John Roberts. Or the other John Roberts.
 
2013-08-31 01:59:25 AM
I guess it would have been a bit harder to find a couple with an "Antonin Scalia" to marry, but it'll do. 

Welcome to the 21st century, America!  =)

Breeders get married for God and Samers get married for lulz? You sure both don't get married for legal and tax reasons?

On the one hand, I want to say to you: stop trying to make the "samer" thing happen; it's not going to happen.

On the other, I like that "samer" sounds like "saner." Gives me warm fuzzies that you think gay marriages are saner marriages.

Go you, you FABULOUS man!

They couldn't get Scalia to take a break from his fishing trip to do it?

Given that Scalia and RBG are basically best friends, it seems unlikely that she would do this.

In some states, anyone can officiate a wedding.

It's a wedding, not a gay wedding. Get over it.

2013-08-31 02:52:43 AM
Also no one is laughing that a Supreme Court Justice is marrying a gay couple - one of whom shares a name with with another (Conservative) Supreme Court Justice?  How could that not click?

She probably was like "oh HELL NO I can't pass this chance up!"

Just imagine the next day in the office... she is giving him so much hell.

I was amazed it wasn't there already. Hard to find a good image of all three of them. That was the first one I saw.

Yes, well, this 'samer' word I invented is useful because it covers both male/male and female/female. The word 'gay' often is to apply only to men whereas women/women has the word 'lesbian'. Samer covers both instances of non hetero couplings.
