Chief Justice John Roberts’ Hurt Feelings — Part XVIII

“The pwesident said mean things about me, wight in fwont of evewybody. MOMMY!?!?!?!”

When the Supreme Court reverses a legal trend that started in the early 1900s, we’re all supposed to just keep quiet and not say a word. Bribery is now a constitutional right, but sssshhhhhhh

The Supreme Court’s “Bribery is just hunky dory” decision is possibly the Court’s most unpopular decision ever. To the vast, vast majority of Americans — and this cuts across all political lines — this decision sucks. Liberal, conservative, religious, atheist — practically everybody agrees that this absurd boneheaded — OOPS!

ssssshhhhhhhhh

Anyway, it’s all water under the bridge now. Bribery is now a constitutional right, and this summer the Supreme Court will probably create another new constitutional right:

Fraud.

Hey, fraud schmaud. Let the buyer beware. A Real American doesn’t need a big smothering nanny state to protect him/her from crooked businesses and politicians. It’s a rough and tumble Free Market out there. Man up and fend for yourself or die.

The fraud/corruption convictions of Jack Abramoff, William Jefferson, Jeff Skilling — among others — could be overturned when the Supreme Court hears their appeals later this year. The law they violated might be “too vague.”

And anyway, perhaps our Founding Fathers envisioned fraud — as well as bribery — as cherished American freedoms, to be enshrined forever in the Bill of Rights.

He no doubt has good mental health insurance to help him get to the root of his trauma at the mean old presidents words. I don't know why he got his big boy panties in a bunch though. This WAS an address to the nation and PO just said what they had done. Not like he called them all a bunch of republican boot lickers or anything is it? Maybe the next one, he can bring a binky along, if the meanies pwn him again. PUTZ

I want to hear hear that champion of no legislating from the bench, Sen. Orrin "Lying Through My Teeth" Hatch tell us again about how Roberts and Alito would be strict constructionists who would follow established law, always ruling narrowly on cases.

Yeah, right — radical right.

Jess: LOL. Or he could sit there and thrust out his lower lip and hold his breath 'til he turns blue.

SW: That court decision sure was some major "legislating from the bench," with nothing but dead silence from the Right.

Nothing pisses me off more than when my little niece does that, however if Roberts was to do it and forget to breathe, I would not say I would be opposed to that.

SW, Tom

You guys don't get it, First they have to REVERSE and CLEAN UP all those past abuses from the Warren and Burger Courts.

Ten they can be the passive non activist Court the right wants them to be.

This will take time

Erik: That's right, I forgot that important first step. After they wipe the slate clean of 100 years of commie influence, then they can preach about "strict constructionists" and "no judicial activism."

It was pretty damned funny to read about a semi-intelligent lifetime political hack crying about partisan politicians. What Roberts helped to sow in 2000 doesn't appeal to him anymore?

The Real Shame is that many of our greatest Justices were picked by either side to carry our an Agenda.

But once they get in there, they realize, unlike an elected position, they are no longer beholden to anybody or any party and finally use the wisdom god gave them.

Not to mention remember that they are the 3rd branch of Government made to check the other two.

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to, you'd cry too if Obama was mean to you!

If God gives out wisdom, he/she is a massive underachiever when it comes to politicians and sensitive souls like Judge Roberts.

Hey JR. I don't think he was on the court in 2000, it just feels like it has been that long. It was Renquist(sp) and commander cuckoo bananas is the one that nominated him. Thanks to tools like ?Schumer and Liebrman in a skirt (DiFi) they helped get over the hurdle in the senate.

JR: They only cry about partisan politics when the other side does it.

Erik: That certainly used to be true; it doesn't seem to be any more. A lot of these "activist judges" that conservatives are always ranting about were appointed by Republican presidents. But Scalia, Thomas and Dumbya's two appointees seem to be locked into a rightwing agenda.

Randal: Leslie Gore for the Supreme Court.

Holte: I don't see Roberts having much wisdom. Blind obedience to a Master, but no wisdom.

Jess: "Liebermann in a skirt" LOL.

this ruling makes me mad enough to spit. We are, once again, seriously considering moving to another country. I think we are entering another Dark Ages.
Stop the world: I want to get off!

kimc: This country certainly is heading in the wrong direction.
