Jackass du Jour

It's really not hard to believe that a Supreme Court "Justice," who was ridiculous enough to rule against Lilly Ledbetter in her discrimination suit, would also be ass enough to rule in favor of the Massey Coal Co., who basically paid out $3 million in campaign financing to get a judge on West Virginia's Supreme Court just to avoid paying $50 million in damages to a former competitor. Of course, it makes total sense to buy your own judge to rule in your favor. That is capitalism! That's the American way!

What chaffs my chaps is Assinine Scalia's "dissent":

"The court today continues its quixotic quest to right all wrongs and repair all imperfections through the Constitution"

Yeah, those silly liberals on the Court. Who are they to even think that someone might go to court to "right a wrong"? What would that poor slob be thinking of, filing a law suit like that? What the hell could he expect?

I know it's asking too much, but maybe Scalia should pull his ideology out his ass and look up what the hell his job title means!

So what does he think the Constitution is for?

That case was so egregious, I can hardly believe the vote was 5-4.

For shame.

Yeah, I know. But these are the same idiots who ruled against Ledbetter, saying that an employee must file a pay discrimination suit as soon as the discrimination occurs--as though you can just stroll into the office, open confidential employee files, and see what everybody makes.

I mean, ideology is one thing, but these fools' decisions just don't make any sense.

And it's said that our form of government, even with all its flaws, is the best form in the world. Kinda' makes you mourn for mankind.
