    I agree. Kudos to the Tweeter from SCOTUSBlog.

  2. Pinky says:

    I dunno. There is so much ignorance and ill will in politics that this stuff is going to live forever in some distorted form as if the Supreme Court did it.

  3. James Pearce says:

    And they wonder why they can’t get credentials…..

  4. Tillman says:

    @Pinky: We’ve hit the Internet Age — everything embarrassing lives forever. We might as well laugh at it.

    Upvote for the magnanimity though. These are dumb liberals we’re talking about.

  5. Give them a break; they’re still on edge because @TIME never responded to their angry tweets about Daylight Savings Time.

    @Jenos Idanian #13: they’re not as bad as some others- they want to burn down hobby-lobby. tolerance in it’s rawest form i guess?!

  8. Pinky says:

    @Tillman: Not magnanimity. Things are confusing enough as-is.

    OK, off my high horse, this one’s funny:

    Really? Let’s let twitter decide. Ok? MT @The_Itch: @SCOTUSblog How do I become a justice? Pretty sure I’m smarter than 5 of you.
