Six dudes and three hot babesHOT NEWS, HOT NEWS! The Supreme Court is hearing a Montana case with direct bearing on its infamous decision in Citizens United, which may have done more to scar the Court’s reputation than anything besides Bush v. Play-Acting Dilettante. Their biggest detractor? “Straight-Talk” John McCain, just cold threatening the Supreme Court’s lives and such, with such terrrrrible thuggery as the following:

“What the Supreme Court did is a combination of arrogance, naivete and stupidity the likes of which I have never seen,” McCain said. “I promise you, there will be huge scandals because there’s too much money washing around, too much of it we don’t know who’s behind it and too much corruption associated with that kind of money.”

Will someone fetch our smelling salts? We are fairly sure that kind of potty talk is not allowed around the great and inerrant Court.

But even some among the robed think the Court is errant (don’t worry John Roberts will send them to Gitmo), and are hoping that hearing the Montana case — a total ban on corporate money affirmed by their state Supreme Court after Citizens United — will give them a chance to revisit the matter.

In March, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer argued the Montana case would give the Supreme Court a chance to rethink Citizens United.

“A petition for certiorari will give the Court an opportunity to consider whether, in light of the huge sums currently deployed to buy candidates’ allegiance, Citizens United should continue to hold sway,” the statement said.

OK enough “information” for all you low-info voters. Now vote!

    To overturn it would be the right thing to do. My vote is that they won't do it. Clarence Thomas will have his usual conservation of words about this case.

    • flamingpdog

      And Mrs. Slappy will have her usual pocketbooks full of cash as a result.

    • To overturn it would be the right thing to do.

      And that's why the 5 little shitstains won't do it.

    • Terry

      Old Clarence can't afford to be talkative until he hears how he should think from the folks who pay his wife.

      • Barb

        Good one, Terry!

    • OT, but I just had to tell you, (cause I knew you'd care).
      I just got another rescue dog yesterday!!
      "Casey," is a silver poodle mix. My little Passover/Easter miracle!
      Pulled from a high-kill shelter in the nick of time.

      (I thought I was a crazy dog-lady until I met Lindsey. About 15 dogs everywhere, cats on the roof and 2 goats in a "time out" cage, for messing up the house(!))

      • Barb

        Demme, that is such wonderful news! I am proud of you for taking in an animal who really needs you and not going to a puppy mill. I'm can't wait to see pictures of your new baby.

        • Thank goodness for people like Lindsey, who can walk into a shelter and pull dogs. I know I could NEVER do it!

    • tessiee

      Really, how do they get that scuzzy pig to do anything whatsoever at work, assuming he even does? If he has to go more than 15 minutes without pron, doesn't he get bored and go home and watch pron?

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Good grief! I almost voted. It's like one of those Fox polls.

    • banana_bread

      I automatically went to vote "no" and then had a pretty good guffaw when I actually read the choices.

      • Biff

        Good thing my vote got counted, I hate when I get disenfranchised.

    • flamingpdog

      No, at least so far, the totals on this one are far less than 179%.

      • Texan_Bulldog

        I was thinking more along these lines.

        Q: Does Obama hate America?


    • Gleem McShineys

      I had to pick the second "no" as it was obviously the True Conservative "no," unlike the first "no" that is totally a NINO.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Clearly, they're shortened versions of "Well, No." and "Hell, No!"

    Walnuts, you and your fellow Keating 5ers can speak from experience.

  • hagajim

    Problem for Walnuts is that the Supreme's are supremely arrogant assholes. If you think there is a snowballs chance in hell of a reversal, just remember old Sammy Alito flat-out dissing Barry during the SOTU address. They will reaffirm and even strengthen the ruling…on a 5-4 vote.

    • Jim, maybe Fat Tony the Fascist will die of a heart attack before the vote.

      • NewtsChicknNeck

        Fat Tony the Fascist is going to live to be 142. he's eye-talian for chrissakes.

      "With all due deference to separation of powers, last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections." is the statement Obama made that had Scalia Lite shaking his head and mumbling. I think it also shows the depth of which the Obama administration reviews these issues. The Montana case was cooking when Citizens United was decided.

      • Boojum

        What Walnuts forgot is that the corruption is a feature, not a bug.

    • tessiee

      "They will reaffirm and even strengthen the ruling…on a 5-4 vote."

        Someone has bested me.Published in 1988,ThePeter Lawford Story: Life With the Kennedys,Monroeand the Rat Packchronicles the life of the low-magnitude movie star, Kennedy in-law and sometime Rat Packer. Among his many acquaintances was young Nancy Davis. Just how well they were acquainted Patricia didn't know until after Reagan was elected president. The Widow Lawford recalls, “Peter was watching the news right after Reagan was elected. He went over to the set, laughing and calling Mrs. Reagan a vulgar name. I was shocked and wanted to know what was bothering him. He laughed again and said that when she was single, Nancy Davis was known for giving the best head inHollywood. Then Peter told of driving to the Phoenix area with Nancy andBob Walker[whom Lawford claims was her lover at the time]. Nancy would visit her parents, Dr. andMrs. Loyal Davis, while Peter and Walker picked up girls atArizona State University in Tempe, a Phoenix suburb. He claimed that she entertained them orally on those trips, apparently playing with whichever man was not driving at the moment. I have no idea if Peter was telling the truth, though I have to assume he was because Peter was not one to gossip.”

      of course, since then 3 more vago-americans have been put on the court and kennedy's afraid of consorting with the ladies. again, i guess the flip-flop proves your point. kennedy's got no nuts…and scalia will treat him like a prison wife if he doesn't get his way.

    • Oh let's just hope and pray that it happens! That's what Grover Norquist did, he just hoped and prayed!

    • Negropolis

      Yes, yes…retire…

      BTW, Obama needs the Congress for other things, but he wouldn't need it to get on a left-leaning justice. The only thing the make-up of the Congress matters for the Supreme court is the difference between getting a flaming liberal or conservative on the court, or having to settle for a moderate. But simply by virtue of being the president, you get your pick, if even he or she is your fourth of fifth on the list.

      • Yes, but noms need Senate confirmation, and That Boy will not get the common courtesy afforded other Presidents without a Democratic majority.

        • Negropolis

          A Democratic or Republican Senate, no Senate would not give a president a Supreme Court nominee, if even said president had to go through a few candidates. I'm just saying, realistically, no Supreme Court seat is going to go unfilled for an entire presidency. That's not to say that the Senate isn't important, at all, for nominations, but rather that it's far more important for other things and we need to keep it…and we will.

          • Well, at least this gives a possible Republican-majority Senate a new depth to aspire to!

  • Strange that John McCain would open his pie hole about the Supreme Court's "Citizens United" decision authorizing corporate purchase of politicians so close to April 9th, the25th ANNIVERSARY of the "Keating Five meeting since McCain took big bucks from Charles Keating to help him get away with looting the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association. Does anyone seriously believe that the Supreme Kangaroo Court gives a crap about anything other than increasing government power and justifying torture, humiliation and perversions? Recently it made news that "Supreme Court Says Jails Can Strip Search You – Even for Traffic Violations". Surprise surprise surprise. Clarence Thomas probably wants videos of it to send to Anita Hill. Scalia had already argued that torture is not "Cruel and unusual punishment" under the Eighth Amendment because questions are being asked so he figures it's reasonable questioning methods. The private prison industry is big business and therefore has the right to bribe Congressmen. Of course Rebecca, that kind of McCain potty mouth is "not allowed around the great inerrant Court" – only discussions about whether there are pubic hairs on one's Coke can, Long Dong Silver, and how to keep us, the peasantry, groveling and thanking them for getting reamed. That's why the Washington Monument reminds so many of the Washington Shaft. Ouch. Do I think the not very Supreme Court will overturn part of it's Citizen's United ruling ruling using the Montana case "American Tradition Partnership, et al., vs. Bullock, et al." ? Well, pigs do fly, but we'll stil get crapped on.

  • Negropolis


    So what you are saying is that John McCain is going to crash "land" a jet fighter in the chambers?

  • Negropolis

    In March, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer argued the Montana case would give the Supreme Court a chance to rethink Citizens United.

      S&L scandal? For a moment I thought I remembered it. That there was some S&L called Silverado involving the brother of a recent Republican president and son of another recent Republican president. Cost taxpayers 1.3 billion, brother found to have engaged in multiple breaches of fiduciary duty. Never charged. Fined a piddling $50,000 in a civil action, and the Republicans set up a fundraiser for him to pay it. But then I realized it must have been a dream, because there have been no recent Republican presidents. We'd be hearing about them if there had been.
