How much longer will red states send manifest idiots to represent them in the world’s greatest deliberative body?
They still haven’t forgiven him for winning Brown v. Board of Education.
Like Obama – they can’t tolerate a black man in any of the 3 branches of government.
@FlyingChainSaw: And again – they can’t admit Brown was right, McCarthy was wrong, and Nixon was a crook. But they never will – they are genetically programmed to obfuscate.
That look on Kagan’s face should be in the dictionary next to “contempt”–and rightly so.
Jon Stewart, just now: “Jezebel thinks I’m a sexist prick.”
Oh, StewBeef. Don’t dignify them with a shout out.
They’re flat out asking, “would you vote in favor of Brown v. Bd. Of Ed.?” They should be fucking honest, and tell the world, that their agenda is to take up the flag even Wallace claimed to give up, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”
That is what they are saying, as plain as day.
I was an English Literature major who concentrated on poetry. Then I went to law school. I recommend poetry as training for discerning the meaning of legal opinions. But, they are different disciplines, night and day.
Poetry taught me to find and recognize the meaning of the author of the most difficult texts (I am not much for the post-modernist beleif that the author’s intention is irrelevant). This prepared me well for discerning the intent and meaning of legal precedents, and to argue coherently and logically what that meaning is, and how it applies to the case at hand.
But law school is all postmodern, in the sense that law school teaches you to completely disregard the true intent and meaning of statutes and opinions, and instead, seize on any plausible perceived interpretation, and twist the words and language to your own purposes.
You know, sophistry.
Thats where we are, now, the triumph of legalism, noone means what they say, nothing says what it means, completely post-modern.
@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: We TiVo’d it. Jr thought The Jez sounded familiar, but he’s sick as a dog and thought he was hearing things. I’ll check it out later.
I held out from watching that clip because I thought it would piss me off. But now that I’ve seen it, it just strikes me as pathetic. This is what they’ve got? Ha! You just know that lil Jonny and lil Jeffy are pitchin’ a fit because Lady Kaga is about to get the sweet job they’ve always wanted and will never, ever have.
Oh, and props to Kagan for keeping a straight face. It’s difficult to listen to that without involuntary snarling or rolling of the eyes. I wonder if she was really listening or was thinking about something else.
@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: They are just such openly racist fascist bags of shit. I can hardly bear to remain alive, knowing I breathe the same air they do, knowing I am a member of the same species.
People wonder, how did the holocaust happen, how could such massive evil occur, well, look at these fucks, and know, that if they had the power, they would do all that Hitler did, and more.
people have been bashing the notion of “the banality of evil,” in a politically correct attempt to maintain the position of the Jewish Holocaust as a special and extraordinary and sacred example of mass evil.
This fucktard from Alabama puts the lie to that, and proves the thesis of the banality of evil. This fuck would gladly, happily, commit genocide, just like Hitler, if he only had the power to do it. he would proudly announce his agenda of ethnic cleansing, to create a pure US Amurrica, with no brown blood adulterating the pure USA white whiteness.
This is no hyperbole, there are a thousand Hitlers waiting out there in this US Amurrica, and they would out-do Hitler in hate and racism and death and genocide, if they could only get in power.
Hitler’s evil was not unique or special, except in that he was able to gain power, and make his evil the policy of a nation. We have hundreds of thousands of Hitlers now in our nation, some have attained positions of notice, like Sessions. Should one of these many, many Hitlers gain power, they will make Hitler look like a piker.
For some reason I’m reminded of this Thoreau quote:
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.
… the world’s greatest deliberative body. You’re using that ironically, right?
Yesterday: Sen. Graham asks Kagan: “Do I suck?”
Today: Sen. Graham: Yes indeedy I do! I’ll be right with you once I get this teabag out of my mouth.
As a bonus, you get Sen. Kyl whining about how there’s not the “will” to get immigration reform done. Of course there isn’t, you fuckstick – *you’re* the ones dragging your feet!
I registered as a commenter just to say that this post alone makes Stinque price of admission worth it.
@maitri: Welcome! Stick around, put on your cranky pants, make yourself a drink over in Cynica’s cocktail corner, and pull up a chair.
And what about the Stinque Dept of Lady Bits’ World Cup Hotties?? ;-) Do you have a “type” for the Hotties (i.e. tall/short, thin/thick, hirsuite/waxed, South American/European) that you feel is not being profiled enough? /I’m full service here.
@SanFranLefty: Just give them their drink tickets, show them the bar and let them enjoy some salty snax while they get their bearings.
@redmanlaw: I should advise Stinquers and Lurquers alike that there will be no World Cup Hottie until July 2, as there are no games scheduled until then.
Holy Fucking Shit, brand W posted the clip, yesterday Lindsay Graham asked Kagan “where were you at on Christmas day,” not just a little aside, its a 3-minute drawn out smarmy snide “look at me making her admit she’s a jew” piece of assholery of the highest order. Holy shit.
@Promnight: Did she say “At a Chinese restaurant, you twat” in response? Because I would have if I were her.
@Promnight: See? I can’t watch this crap without throwing stuff.
@SanFranLefty: +1 Dim sum FTW!
You could use that clip of Lindsay Graham as a training video in the HR department, to train people on how NOT to conduct a job interview. He’s interviewing a job applicant, essentially, and deliberately asking a question that would get his ass sued in the real world. That exchange is evidence of actionable bias.
@Promnight: Right. Is the Senate allowed to ask anything it wants?
@JNOV: Congressional immunity. I’m not sure that Title 7 applies to the federal courts anyway.
Hey, I thought the Tribe members went to the movies on Christmas, is that just earlier in the day?
I know where asians go on Christmas, they go to casinos, its gambling day.
@SanFranLefty: Hup Hup Holland, baby, if you know what I mean!
@maitri: Hey, I like the cut of your jib, newbie. Welcome!
On foreign shores (literally, the beach was awesome) the crowd was clearly a favor de Holanda. However, when I told the dancing Brasilen@s afterwards that I felt their pain, one smirked and said “you should, we would have taken our tops off if we had won!”.
