    It appears to me she calls out their decision as unintelligent, which makes them unfit to serve on the court.
    Aren't these justices supposed to be the most intellegent of persons capable of interpeting the arguments? And Laws?And that pesky thing known as common sense?
    WTF?

    Thomas, Scallia, Roberts, Alito have to go

    •  She calls their decision out as unintelligent, yes (3+ / 0-)

      indeed.  I admit I don't read Supreme Court decisions often, so maybe I'm off base here, but isn't this a remarkably in-your-face, "What were you SMOKING?" kind of desent?  I was both laughing and shocked.

      But maybe that's just me.

      But I like Kagen better all the time.

      I see a huge chasm in competence between the parties, which extends to their nominees.  A few parallels:

      - Whatever Rahm Emmanuel's flaws, if he were asked about the timing of an administration's building a rationale for preemptive invasion, do you see him answering "from a marketing standpoint, you don't roll out new products in August"?

      - Would Madeleine Albright say something as fantastical and irresponsible as "we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud"?

      - Are the post-presidential achievements of Republican vs. Democratic presidents in any way comparable.  Heck, can their losing nominees even hold a candle to any of ours when in comes to achievements outside of politics?

      There should be no surprise that they nominate resentful lightweights, corporate stooges and egomaniacal jackasses.  The Republican party hasn't valued intellectual heft in decades.
