Impeach Alito, Impeach Alito. Impeach Alito. Sorry I just don't have that much more to say on the issue. This isn't really a diary so much as an opportunity to say what really does need saying.
Supreme Court Justice heckles the President of the United States of America during the State of the Union address to the nation.
How much more does one have to do? How much further must one go before America stands up and says,"this right wing Republican extremist behavior - this deliberate, co-ordinated effort to show contempt for, and disrespect towards the office of the President of the United States of America and the current occupant of that esteemed position - has gone too far"? When will America have had enough? America is a set of ideals that is worth standing up for and defending, isn't it?
Or is the nation so devalued, is the idea that is/was America so defeated, that the rich, the powerful and their craven lackeys will be allowed to pour scorn upon it with the eyes of the world watching.
[EDIT: oh i see - i get a diary full of GFY comments and told i'm bringing down the tone, but when clammyc diaries the same f*ck*ng sentiment it's top rated]
Thanks for commenting :-)
One thing I'd also argue is that if an equivalent left wing justice to Alito's position on the right (there isn't one) doing something similar during Bush's State of the Union would be drummed off the bench by the Republicans and the media in unison.
And I am shocked that people genuinely don't believe that the Republicans and their right wing compatriots outside of Congress are executing on a deliberate strategy of public disrespect towards Obama to deligitimize him. That's what the whole birther movement is about. It's what so much of the refusal to give him any co-operation politically is about. Not quite sure why that merits the HR hammer. That's the kind of thing that disincentivizes people from participating in the conversation over here.
Oh, and to any Mobile App team volunteers that read this (see previous diary). Taken a few more days to get set up than planned, but you should get a co-ordinating email this week.
