hubiestubert: 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...


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.

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.

No, 'samer' is just your handy way of lumping all those folks together for the convenience of saving on typing with your fat-sounding greasy sausage fingers.

In what jurisdiction do Supreme Court Justices have the authority to marry people?  Sure, they are judges, but wouldn't they have to be a judge or justice of the peace in a particular state in order to marry people?


Congress gives them that authority.  At the wedding I was at she specifically stated: "By the power that is invested in me by the Congress of the United States of America ..."

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!

Yes, well, this 'samer' word I invented is a cry for help and attention. I am not stupid but I pretend to be stupid on a website so that people will interact with me. 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.

tillerman35: Won't this now be used by opponents of gender/orientation/whatever equality to put a lot of pressure on her to recuse herself whenever a case related to this subject is argued before the court?  Seems to me by doing something so public, she's effectively stating that she has a bias toward one side of the argument.


did it matter when Scalia went hunting with a guy before hearing his case?

When I was a teen, "gay" covered lesbians too. I still use it as an all inclusive. Kinda like "the guys" and any of 1000 other words that are technically masculine but are commonly used to refer to mixed sex or even all female groups.

Anyway, I live in Alabama, and "samer" sounds like something Johnny-boy would sneer as he gets off his four wheeler after coming back from the Walmart with a case of Bud and some pork rinds. If your goal is try to create a label that already sounds vaguely like a slur, congratz. If you're trying to create a "safe" word for it, I got news: you're acting "special".


It must be a slur cos you are imagining johnny-boy at walmart and some other things. That must be the test.

armoredbulldozer: TuteTibiImperes: feckingmorons: Did she quit?

Nobody tells me anything.

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.

What a stupid coont.


Ahhh ... smells like failure and butthurt.

ciberido: Noam Chimpsky: bingethinker: 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.


Noam Chimpsky is a birther, which is itself demonstration of insanity.

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.
