  •  the part you put in blockquotes was my favorite :) (10+ / 0-)

    & scalia & roberts' faux concern over cameras in the supreme court . . . please, gimmeafuckingbreak. heaven forbid the supremes should ever be subjected to the vulgarity of cameras (gasp!) in their throne -- i mean, court -- room. that would mean everyone could see they're not the gods they believe they are (at least where scalia, roberts, alito, & thomas are concerned).

    •  I used to think the supremes should allow (0+ / 0-)

      cameras in the court room. I'm now wavering. Its bad enough to read about what went on in the court, after the fact. To watch live, as the nonsensical jibber-jabber spews from the pie holes of Scalia, Roberts and Thomas, is probably a bit too much for me -- especially with me trying to lay off the Valium.

      Can I get a Grey Goose on the rocks over here?!

        What they are desperate to avoid is simply the TV news and others being able to contrast what they are saying, live and in color, with opposing views.

        It makes powerful TV to juxtapose the arguments in simple, easy to understand segments.

        Plus ... Scalia and Alito can never quite keep the "sneer" out of their expressions when talking about ordinary Americans.

        I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
        but I fear we will remain Democrats.
