The Afternoon Quote

“Is it the government’s submission that citizens in the South are more racist than citizens not in the South?”

–SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts on the Voting Rights Act.

No, not everyone in the South is racist, that’s silly. However to need to ask if there is a problem with racism in The Confederacy is absurd.

    The ignorance of the Chief Justice is quite impressive.

  2. Hopefully Black John is just chumming the cesspool, and will toss his catch of two-headed brown trout back before voting like a grown-up…

    …who cares about how he will be remembered by future generations.

    It has to be amazing to be on the SCOTUS just for the sheer fact of knowing no matter what stupid ass thing comes out of your mouth, some poor bastard law student is going to have review that crap and try to parse some intelligent insight from it. Amazing.

    That’s probably just optics, Fat Tony, but it sometimes does appear that southern politicians pander overtly to the racists in their midst a tad more than elsewhere.

    Oops! That wasn’t Scalia, that was Roberts. Do you think they could arrange to speak on alternate days? Two moronic statements from SCOTUS on the same day is just too enervating.

    Chimpy McStagger and company stole the election to bless us with two albatrosses, John Roberts and good ole Sam Alito, hung around the neck of society for probably as long as most of us will live. These fuckers have to go somehow, someway. Their being there is just more perpetuation the original crime. Pleased let there be some accountability.
