Supreme Strip Search

In other news, Ipsos is now projecting that President Obama will have an 85 to 99 percent chance of winning re-election if his current approval rating holds or improves between now and November. It should be noted the rating they're using for their forecast is actually low-balled by 3 to 4 percent.

    Ah, but the evil five on the Supreme Court – who plan to scrap the ACA in June, just because – will do their goddamn hardest to make sure that never happens.

    That cartoon is worthy of a Pulitzer Prize. Great looking out as always.

    Recall Clarence Thomas was the single dissenting justice in Safford v. Redding where he came out very much in favor of “constitutional dead zones” and school officials strip searching 13 year old girls because they might be in possession of ibuprofen(origami paper fortune tellers, perhaps?), but now we see the current court is undermining the foundation of their own fucking stare decisis as the majority in that case– now deciding when and how the fourth amendment wins and loses in America. It really is a wingnut-huddle of judicial schizophrenia over there with Clarence Thomas actually setting the tone for the low bar standard of justice. They all come around to Clarence Thomas in the end. The conservative justices on the court are out of their minds. Thomas should be held in contempt of the universe and court ordered to greet gamblers in Atlantic City, or sip juice boxes without a straw in a state asylum, where the whole country can watch on the 24 hour government subsidized Clarence Thomas Channel.

    I can’t believe more people aren’t raising hell about this. I’m fucking stunned, myself, because apparently, for at least 5 Supreme Court justices, being able to read and comprehend the Constitution was not a prerequisite for their job.

      I’m starting to get the feeling about this Court as something similar to the last lines of the movie “Chinatown”. “Forget about it Jake; it’s Chinatown”. Just replace the words Chinatown with the Supreme Court and it fits perfectly.
