SCOTUS on TV: “They Might Not Be Such Bastards” (March 26, 2012)
. . .
C1 “The Supremes are hearing oral argument on ‘Romney – O’Bama Care’ this week. The Supremes get free health care for life and get to decide whether ordinary Americans get health care. They don’t get it.”
C2 “Are they listening or just sitting there allowing the barristers to babble. Thomas is asleep.”
C1 “Or are they just blow harding to hear themselves blow hard. ‘Romney – O’Bama Care’ is about personal responsibility and now the blow hards are contending that it impinges on personal freedom. Cameras in the court room would provide some insight.”
C2 “Everyone might play for the camera.”
C1 “The lawyers and the Justices. They can be so churlish and childish.”
C2 “Or arrogant bastards. I was in the lawyer’s line last December minding my own business and listening to the other conversations. She observed that the cameras likely would change everyone’s behavior. And she matter-of-factly observed that the cameras might make the Justices behave more civilly. ‘They might not be such bastards,’ she opined politely.”
