Wingers Demand Ginsburg, Kagan Recuse Selves From Gay Marriage Case, Go Play Softball

Dangerous radicals
The American Patriarchy Association, fronted by spokescreep Bryan Fischer, is calling for Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan to recuse themselves from the Supreme Court’s upcoming case on same-sex marriage because they’re entirely too biased on the issue. And who better to opine on this than a man who believes the First Amendment only applies to Christians and that the only laws that are truly Constitutional are those which God would agree with?

Supreme Court Says You Can’t Lie About Gun Purchases. How Is That Even Fair?

Did you hear that? It’s the sound of Ted Nugent and Wayne LaPierre’s and zombie Charlton Heston’s heads, all exploding in glorious concert, because the Supremes ruled against a Gun Thing yesterday, which is weird because we totally figured that the Fab Five conservatives on the Court loved them some rolling back gun regulations as much as they loved rolling back regulations on every other goddamn thing in the world. However, at least in this case, Anthony Kennedy trod?? treaded?? all over freedom and the Bill of Rights by joining the Court’s somewhat liberal wing to uphold the straw purchaser law, which prohibits you from saying you’re buying the gun for yourself when you’re really buying it for someone else. What is this? Soviet Russia??? Read more on Supreme Court Says You Can’t Lie About Gun Purchases. How Is That Even Fair?…

Larry Klayman Was Very Excellent At Being Larry Klayman In 2013: A Retrospective

Did you know that when Yr Wonket counts its blessings, we count Larry Klayman first and always? You probably did not know this, but it is god’s own truth, because if there were no Larry Klayman, there would be so much less Wonket. For real, we wrote about Larry Klayman like a dozen times this year, and that only includes the times that Larry Klayman was the subject of the post rather than a bit of derp in passing. He’s a one-man litigation tornado whirlwind hurricane force of nature, and he has the great good fortune to behave remarkably stupidly even when he is not lawyering. Let’s take a fond look back at the year in Larry, shall we? Read more on Larry Klayman Was Very Excellent At Being Larry Klayman In 2013: A Retrospective…

Female SCOTUS Justices Gettin’ Mighty Uppity With Their ‘Questions’ And Such

In 1978, future Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and most awesome woman in the entire galaxy Ruth Bader Ginsburg was giving a presentation to that same esteemed body for a case dealing with how gender should be treated by the equal protection clause (an issue which has always been kind of been a bugaboo for RGB). The last question from the bench came from preeminent fascist pill head William H. Rehnquist, who took the opportunity to ask his future colleague a “joke” by saying “You won’t settle for putting Susan B. Anthony on the new dollar..?”. Bader Ginsburg said nothing, because she knew her damn place. Sadly, it seems that this important lesson on how best to be a lady lawyer is lost on this new generation of female justices, who are daring to speak their mind and are totally fucking up the vibe of what was once Washington’s best robed-themed drinking club with all their talk about “equality” and “jurisprudence.” To make matters worse, the awful Goddess Coven of Bader-Ginsburg, Kagan, and (especially) Sotomayor are feminizing and “personalizing” the law, which is making it really difficult for adorable megalomaniacs like Anton Scalia to reassert the court’s traditional role of quashing hope and destroying progress for anyone other than white men and corporations. Luckily Sandy Rios of American Family Radio is addressing this important issue in the law before bitches ruin everything.

In Unfamiliar Role, Wonkette Scours Internet for Good News

Yr Wonkette, just like everybody else, still stuck in one of the first four stages of the five stages of grief. (“Acceptance” is not on the table. Not now, not ever). In order to get through the day, we’ve been searching the internets for things that are not awful. We have also been drinking but that is nothing new now is it.

Scalia & Thomas Have Anti-Obamacare Dinner (Kagan Should Recuse)

Notorious fringe-right “originalist” boobs Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas were so happy with the announcement that the Supreme Court will be hearing a challenge to the health care reform law that they celebrated immediately afterward by boozing it up with the legal team that will be arguing against the law. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Scalia/Thomas duo hit a Federalist Society dinner to pretend to listen to what other people think about the Obamacare law before they eventually and inevitably knock it down.

New Pals Scalia and Kagan Hang Out At Gun Range

Antonin Scalia was spotted giving Elena Kagan “a lesson” about shootin’ crap at a shooting “club” last week, according to The Daily Caller, which has set up a tin-can telephone at the bottom of Tucker Carlson’s treehouse to receive such tips. Clarence Thomas is gonna be so pissed when he finds out his blood brother was hanging out with that new girl without him! According to eyewitnesses who had their rifle scopes trained on the liberal intruder woman, Scalia was “bending down in order to teach Kagan how to hold the shotgun,” and “the pair were shooting skeet.” Sexy! For their second date, Scalia will do Kagan’s favorite activity, recreationally aborting a fetus and then gay-marrying it to another aborted fetus.

NRA Declines To Endorse Harry Reid Despite $61 Million Monument To Gun Crimes He Built Them

Remember when RedState put up a Drudge Siren about how the NRA was going to endorse Harry Reid? Yeah, not happening. They say they won’t support him because he voted for Justices Sotomayor and Kagan. So why did taxpayers fund a $61 million earmark for a gun range in the middle of the Nevada desert?

Mitch McConnell Doesn’t Find Al Franken’s Senate Comedy Sketch Very Funny

“When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell laid out his opposition to Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination, someone in the chamber appeared to be moving around in his chair, gasping and rolling his eyes.” Oh no! Who would do such a thing?! Turns out it was Sen. Al Franken, who was presiding over the Senate and was elected in 2008 by Minnesota felons to make comedy sketches for America in its legislature. Mitch McConnell’s eyes turned red, cartoon steam shot out his ears, and he confronted Franken. “This isn’t Saturday Night Live,” he said, which is the best comeback of the century.

America Swoons As Elena Kagan Is Voted By Senate Onto Supreme Court

There she is, Miss Supreme Court. There she is, your ideal. At long last, Elena Kagan has gone from the cocoon of Senate confirmation hearings and emerged a beautiful judicial butterfly. In what is now a great American tradition, Kagan made sure not to answer a single question during the entire marathon, and now the Senate has voted to confirm her, and now she is your new John Paul Stevens. The vote was 63-37. Lindsey Graham yelped and lept in the air in excitement when the final votes were tallied. “Ham biscuits!” he squealed, probably, but we aren’t completely sure because we wrote this post in May.

The Kagan Confirmation Process: Still Happening, We Guess

You probably just assumed that Elana Kagan has been on the Supreme Court for months, stone cold legislating from the bench and making everyone have gay abortions without their guns or whatever, but in fact she still has to be confirmed by the full Senate. Is this a thing that will happen? Probably! The New York Times has a convenient chart of Senators, and what they think of our future Judge-Dictator.

Elena Kagan Confirmed, Surprising Everyone

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate today. The score was 13 to 6, entirely along party lines except for Lindsey Graham, who voted “YOU GO, GIRL.” Graham said Kagan was “not someone he would have chosen,” according to the Times, as she is not his type, but he weirdly voted based on her being qualified to hold the position, not based on the party of the man who nominated her. Ha, he is going to lose his next primary now. Read more on Elena Kagan Confirmed, Surprising Everyone…

Hillbillies To Rescue America’s Unemployed

With handsome devil Carte Goodwin scheduled to be sworn in as Robert Byrd’s seat-warming replacement sometime today, Democrats (plus the reliable communist ladies from Maine) should be able to break the Republican filibuster and get that lucrative government money flowing to the unemployed again, huzzah! Plus they plan to spend the whole midterm campaigning telling the millions of jobless that John Boehner personally kept their checks in his office so that they couldn’t be mailed out.

Arlen Specter In News Headline For Last Time Before He Dies

Arlen Specter has an editorial in USA Today today (today) telling the world that he will vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. The world, of course, does not care. Arlen Specter holds no power over Supreme Court nominations anymore, but even if he did, the news media has finally stopped covering Supreme Court hearings as they are nothing more than a boring marathon of trying to not say anything that means anything for days on end. But that doesn’t stop Arlen from trying to wow us with the amazing suspense of whether he will support his new party’s Supreme Court nominee or not.

Wonkette To Accept Chinese Buyout, Become ‘People’s Glorious Political Sexytime Humor Blog’

Oh, Elena Kagan confirmation hearings, you finished before you could even really get started! Where were your memorable moments, your lunatic grandstanding, your insights into softball strategy? All we have is some outraged testimony from some military guys saying that at Harvard Law Kagan made them “use the back door by the garbage” (i.e., by the gays). Looks like she’ll be confirmed, but with not many Republican votes, and maybe not with Specter’s vote either, since he thought her answers were “pure prepared pabulum” and not substantive like hearings used to be back in the day.

Evil Senate Refuses To Let C-SPAN Stick Camera In Robert Byrd’s Dead Face

People from the Radio-Television Correspondents Association have sent a “formal complaint” to Senate Rules Committee Chairman Chuck Schumer because the Senate has denied C-SPAN the permission to provide round-the-clock coverage of people looking at Robert Byrd’s wrinkly old corpse as it lies in state in the Senate Chamber. It is implied that Byrd’s family doesn’t want cameras there. Come on Senate, can you please just let C-SPAN point a camera at Robert Byrd’s dead body for hours on end? The alternative is them airing the Elena Kagan hearings. WHICH ONE IS MORE ENTERTAINING? [Erika Lovely] Read more on Evil Senate Refuses To Let C-SPAN Stick Camera In Robert Byrd’s Dead Face…

Kagan Hates Jesus As Well As Mormon Vampires

The video after the jump is from yesterday, but, eh, nobody here was live-blogging it, so you chumps probably haven’t heard about it, so we could tell you it was from today and you’d never know! Anyway, watch an exquisitely bored Lindsey Graham ask Elena Kagan “where [she] was at on Christmas Day,” then watch her stutter her way through the beginning of some answer about whether or not people attempting to blow up their underwear over American soil should be sent straight to Gitmo or slapped around a little first, but then it turns out Lindsey just wants to know what her actual physical location last Christmas was. The answer may surprise you, if you think Jews worship Jesus! Read more on Kagan Hates Jesus As Well As Mormon Vampires…

How Did Al Franken Become ‘America’s Artist-Senator’?

Yesterday Sen. Al Franken drew “the portrait blogged around the world” when he pencilled a little sketch of Alabama Senator/Grand Wizard Jeff Sessions during the Elena Kagan confirmation hearing. (He also napped, but you can’t auction that off at Sotheby’s.) Everybody seems to agree that Franken has mad drawing skills. Where on earth did they come from?

BREAKING: KAGAN REFUSES TO TAKE POSITION ON MORMON VAMPIRE-WEREWOLF SEXING CONTROVERSY: Your morning editor is too cheap to buy cable and too terrified of spontaneous eye-bleeding to try to seek out the Kagan hearings on the Internets, but hero tipster “WindbagCity” has caught what will surely be the most important exchange of the day: “Amy Klobuchar just asked Kagan about Twilight, and whether she is ‘Team Edward’ or ‘Team Jacob’. Happened around 9:30 am. Kagan wisely deflected the question, saying she’d ‘rather not’ answer.” What sort of modern heterosexual 21st century American woman doesn’t have a quick and immediate response as to whether she’d like to bed a dull-eyed teenage vampire or a freakishly muscled teenage werewolf? OH DID WE JUST ANSWER OUR OWN QUESTION? UPDATE: Video evidence here; Kagan actually said “I wish you wouldn’t” when Klobuchar threatened to ask her opinion on this very important matter. CONFIRM HER IMMEDIATELY. Read more on …

Vile Racist Jeff Sessions: It’s His Day To Shine!

Who is this vile, lisping piglet known as the “top ranking Republican” on the Senate Judiciary Committee calling everybody and everything (mostly Elena Kagan) Communist and Anti-American? Why it’s Alabama heartthrob Jeff Sessions, the Reagan-era U.S. attorney in Mobile who, when nominated by the Gipper to be U.S. District Court judge in southern Alabama, was revealed to be a complete racist and Bircher-style paranoid — the kind of trash who would tell black colleagues that he thought the Ku Klux Klan were “okay” until he discovered some of them were “pot smokers.” Read more on Vile Racist Jeff Sessions: It’s His Day To Shine!…
