in a ruling of monumental insignificance, on the second day of the new obamanation calendar, the supreme court this morning denied without comment a request for a stay of yesterday's historic coronation of barry "the usurper" hussein obama-soetoro:

anyone mind telling us what all that means in layman's terms? does it mean they're not going to hear the suit? does it mean obama must present his COLB? something else?

i never learned how to speak lawyer.

it does positively boggle the mind, doesn't it? just what exactly does it mean, in terms even a natural-born™ citizen of free republic can understand, to dismiss a request to postpone an event that's already occurred?

anyone? bueller ... ? bueller ... ?

"get this nonsense out of my courtroom."

lol don't feel bad, most lawyers can't speak lawyer.

it means that the request for the "stay", i.e. the request to stop obama from being inaugurated, was denied. it means that they are not going to ever accept any of these cases. sad but true. if scalia is denying the stays, this will never get anywhere absent something like an old 8mm of obama being born in kenya.

the cases are still "alive" as some are still scheduled for conference so the court can decide whether or not to accept the appeal. but, being a long time atty, i can tell you it's dead. they could surprise me and take them, but i would be astounded if they did.

the focus needs to be on more evidence.

evidence ... we don't need no stinkin' schmevidence ... we've finally got barry right where we want him!

doesn’t matter really, barry flubbed the oath, he still may not be president.

no stopping until the marxist fraud is booted from office.

obama will be brought down, appointee by appointee.

agreed - setbacks are lessons...onward now!

yep, no stopping. at some point there is going to be enough publicity of how many [cases] are being thrown out and why.

and at some point he is going to tick off the wrong person and they will come forward with the goods.

well, alrighty then ... it's full speed ahead! for a second there i thought i'd landed in troll republic, but real freepers don't let the absence of fact, logic. evidence or progress spoil a righteous crusade.

... meanwhile, in other news, much to the vicarious distress of perennially sexually-insecure freepers everywhere, msnbc news host norah o'donnell, while covering the senate vote of newly-confirmed secretary of state hillary clinton, went where few village slights have gone before — that is, across the aisle:

norah o'donnell: i want to play what senator cornyn said today about these concerns about hillary clinton, and her husband still able to take money into his foundation. let's listen:

john cornyn: i was encouraged by my conversation with senator clinton yesterday in the rotunda following the inaugural ceremonies. she said that she would be open to a requirement that is an across-the-board disclosure requirement, that isn't just her and the clinton foundation.

so they want more information; they want instant disclosure, essentially, not the disclosure at the end of the year. if this is a serious issue — which seems like a serious issue, why then two seconds later says "but i'm still going to vote for her"?

i mean, have they kind of lost their cojones, the republicans?

tucker carlson: [chuckling] oh ... ? kind of ... !

ooooooh ... that's gonna leave a mark.

Hillary - Nutcracker

if she was looking at tucker carlson at the time, I can understand why that thought came to mind

proof that the media are slow learners.

once upon a time they did. newt and the contract with america gang had them. still a few with cajones but the rest like mccain and his gang are eunuchs.

the republican brand has been deteriorating ever since the senate republicans folded at the impeachment trial of wj clinton.

what's with the leftist female cajones fascination?

to leftist females its meant as a compliment, meaning a guy finally 'gets it'.

of course they immediately go on to ridicule the newly emasculated males lack of cajones.

technically she is wrong. they never had them to lose.

it's been quite evident for some time. where has this twit been?

the answer is yes, thou norah does have a great rack.

"lost" makes it sound like an accident....


offered them up for removal more like.

sigh ... not a good day to be a republican. and may there be many more like it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
