SCOTUS Immigration ruling & Healthcare decision

Update 10 AM: Word is no HCR decision today, probably Thursday. No way to know if that’s true, it’s just a plausible sounding rumor being passed around the new media community in the last few minutes. If so I’ll be nailed to my chair blogging the injustice of the Justices here. And I’ll be wearing something nice, this time, because I like to look nice when I get $*#%&-ed by creepy old men in black hoods …

Update 9:21 AM Central: Mixed decision on the Immigration Law but sounds like the Papers Please part was upheld, at least partially. I’ll leave the rest to the legal eagle bloggers like Ed Brayton.

Just think of how long we are having to pay for George Bush’s Presidency. A handful of votes and another SCOTUS decision led to a disastrous trillion-dollar war, disastrous multi-trillion dollar tax cuts that didn’t work, and a catastrophic economic meltdown that is still wreaking havoc. It’s arguable most or all of that would not have happened had Bush lost in 2000.

MSNBC — As early as today and as late as Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court will issue its ruling on the federal health-care law. And there are essentially three outcomes: 1) everything gets upheld, 2) everything gets struck down, or 3) something in between. But the politics — especially as it relates to November — aren’t as clear cut. But our guess is that a full uphold or a full repeal energizes the winning side and knocks the losers for an unexpected loop.

Now we’re on pins and needles waiting for Bush’s judicial spawn to screw us. And here I am wearing an old pair of shorts. I should put on something nicer. I like to look good when I get fucked by creepy old men in black robes.

    They also declined to hear the Soledad Cross case, which means it’s coming down…

    Or, I guess, the land could be given to private hands, since this is an election year.

    As a tradesman I’ve been screwed over so many times that if they had any decency, a reach around and smoke each time are the minimum expression of common decency, I would be getting a hand job for a decade and tractor-trailers would be backed up for blocks waiting to deliver the smokes.

    I don’t want those monsters touching me, and I don’t smoke. But they could, at the very least, make the offer. Cretins.

    I thought he did. Or was it the next one where he “won”?
