But I don't remember temper tantrums on the scale I'm seeing over marriage equality this morning. And yes, the accurate term is temper tantrums. Temper tantrums of epic proportions.
Is little Jackie reading the hissy fits and conniption fits this morning and feeling a trifle cranky? Hell yes, and it's more than a trifle.
Like it or not. Agree with it or not. The Supreme Court was established by the constitution. Yes, that constitution. The judiciary is the third branch of government you twits. You can't shut it down because you don't like the results and are throwing temper tantrums of epic proportions. And there's a reason federal judges are appointed not elected. The same reason the house is reelected every two years and the senate one third at a time. Insulation you blithering idiots, insulation. Insulation from the temper tantrums, hissy fits and conniption fits littering the air waves today.
However it's really scary when a sitting justice doesn't seem to understand why his highly educated derriere can't be kicked off the the court by anything less than death or impeachment. Yes, I mean you Tony and Tommy.
The court has been the final arbiter of what is and is not constitutional since John Marshall was chief justice. And this daughter of long time immigrants is getting sick and tired of first generation immigrant offspring from countries with little or no history of representative government telling the rest of us (earliest settlers in my family 1630's) how we got it wrong. Hell the English have been working on the concept for nearly a thousand years. we've rebelled over it. We killed a king for it.
You don't like the results? Work to amend the constitution. News flash it only takes thirteen states to sink you so good luck.
