Judgment Gay

This is progress - major progress - but note that the vote was 5 to 4 (again). This time, Anthony Kennedy sided with the four Democrats on the Court.

But note that he joined the right-wing crazies just the day before in striking down the 1965 Voting Rights Act. And he was part of that terrible majority decision in Citizens United, too. It's that close at the Supreme Court.

The far right-wing justices tend to be young, too. They'll be with us for a long time. And all it would take is just one more Republican president picking one more justice. That's how close this remains for America - not just for this particular issue, but many others. It's scary.

There was more on the Daily Show last night that was pretty good (here and here), but I did want to post the following brief video clip. This is exactly the right response to Michele Bachmann:

Who cares what Michele Bachmann thinks? Only the media.

I was gonna ask how come you hadn't posted anything about Wendy Davis' Filibuster, but then I watched the Daily show clips about it.
