QOTD -- SCOTUS Value For The Dollar


"... There was a particularly striking exchange between Laura Ingraham and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) on Fox News, where Ingraham grew inexplicably enraged over the mere possibility that Roe might not be overturned.

“'If we have six Republican appointees on this court,” she said, "after all the money that’s been raised, the Federalist Society, all these big fat-cat dinners — I’m sorry, I’m pissed about this — if this court with six justices cannot do the right thing here,” then Republicans should “blow it up” and pass some kind of law limiting the court’s authority.

“'I would do that in a heartbeat,” Cruz responded.

"In other words: We bought this court, and we’d better get what we paid for." -- Paul Waldman, in a Washington Post op/ed about the lies the right- wing Republican justices told during their confirmation hearings about Roe and stare decisis.  Don't worry, Laura.  You'll get what you paid for.
