Didn't he used to be the Right Wing of the Court?

Not bad enough to not DO it, mind you

Roberts was speaking?  I wondered what that smell was.

Rehnquist, he ain't.

i don't know what TPM is, but i love the tone of this article. there is no point anymore in pretending to be objective, let's all just say what we feel, directly, like newspapers did in the 1920s (or whenever, i'm not sure, but i know we didn't invent bias in the last decade)

Roberts is really kind of the right thigh and flappy ass meat of the court now.

It's his court.  This is his legacy.  Don't let anyone forget that.

Lol... he has lost complete control of "his" court.

He is a corporatist through and through and a very smart political tactician.

He knows this ruling gives the Democrats something to run on, which is why he never would have allowed it if he was still in control.

He has no more control. The lunatics run that asylum and he's just along for the ride.

If Roberts were a person of integrity he would resign over this - not just the decision, but the dishonesty of the justices who said that Roe v. Wade was settled law. It's his name that is going to be attached to this, the Roberts Court, in posterity.

Roberts was installed by the Fortune 500, he can't leave without their permission.

That is the correct answer.  The only way he can save even a shred of his legacy is to resign.

You felt bad, but you still threw in your vote. You might want to walk it back, because it's GOING to make a lot of family gatherings a whole lot tense, especially as it gives Democrats a whole NEW way of highlighting Republican hypocrisy when, as you know it will happen, members of the GOP and RNC and Fox News start booking trips to abortion legal states, for family 'visits.' Because you damn well know that someone is going to leak that sh*t.

And for what? The support of knuckledraggers who'd just as quickly turn on you and try to burn your homes to the ground? Theocrats don't care about your law. They answer to crazier higher power, and their God is crazy.

Pretty sure it would void his warranty.

i keep saying it, every liberal needs to buy an AR-15 and start marching with it at every local protest for their rights they can find.

If i find out he has been shot to death, i don't think i will mourn.

Some justices just want to watch the world burn.
 
2022-06-24 8:10:27 PM  
All I'll say is that when the time comes, I hope it is slow and I hope it hurts.

The Roberts Court could have gone down in history for Obergefell, and that would be a great legacy.  But now Thomas wants to take even that good work away from Roberts.  Thomas needs to retire, why won't he?  Is he that committed to fascism and white supremacy?
 
2022-06-24 8:10:36 PM  
I'll be equally crestfallen about pissing on his grave.
 
2022-06-24 8:11:11 PM

I can't say how I feel on most any platform without getting another disappointed call from my FBI agent, Mike.

A legacy that will live in infamy next to that of the Taney court and Dred Scott.

The damage this illegitimate, partisan, lawless court has done will take decades to fix.
 
2022-06-24 8:13:19 PM  
This is your court, John. This is your legacy now.

On the plus side, your grave will be the best fertilized in the cemetery.

The only changes Alito made to his draft was to mock Roberts for trying to split the baby in their moment of triumph. The final draft says that all Roberts' arguments are dumb, now is the time to pay off the 40+ year electoral promise to end Roe and stop with the half measures. And pouring salt on the wound that way got 5 votes.
 
2022-06-24 8:13:31 PM  
fark him. He should never have a moments peace again.
 
2022-06-24 8:14:45 PM  
fark that POS Asshole .. It was  a law protected for almost 50 years , now it's not a law , so treat the 2nd. the same way and do something worthwhile for a change ..
 
2022-06-24 8:15:22 PM  
If you really cared, you could have broken precedent, stripped Alito of the privilege, and wrote the opinion yourself.

"I personally disagree with how the other assholes are going to vote, but I'm the Chief Justice and I get to write this. The other 5 are free to make sh** up to justify their actions with dissenting essays"

oh no, you don't really support it? yeah, you farking voted for it, jackwagon. there's your god damned legacy.

The court became nothing more than a kangaroo court in obliterating Roe. Stare decisis is dead. Might makes right and your pathetic clown ass is in the middle ring.

Time to start picketing some fundie churches?
 
2022-06-24 8:19:46 PM  
So glad to live in a state that has no restrictions on abortion at all. If the Feds think they are going to take that away from us sometime down the road they might want to think again. We may be dirty socialist hippies, but we know how to fight back.
 
2022-06-24 8:19:48 PM  
Makes me wonder if there was some sort of behind the scenes of "OK, you can incarcerate some of our people for Jan 6th, but we gotta get rid of Roe".  "Deal".

I'll send a thank you card.

You almost gotta feel for the poor bastard. Ginsburg pushed her luck, stopped on a Whammy, and now he's going down with Taney.
