Video: Landmark Supreme Court decision announced

posted at 11:28 am on June 24, 2008 by Allahpundit

No, not that one, but we need something to tide us over while we wait for the bombshell to burst. I’m getting fidgety here. What’s the hold up, Nino? You are the law. Content warning.

Haha, I love the Onion.

The Onion is truly entertaining!

Reaganite84 on June 24, 2008 at 11:40 AM

onion humor!

maverick muse on June 24, 2008 at 11:40 AM

Clearly I should have been nominated to the Supreme Court when I was in Junior High. I would havs so totally fit in. I could draw cool stuff like, way better than those guys. I seem to remember I even bought a Judge Dredd comic book once.

Hillarious, but triking me like that is not funny. I’d rather be rick rolled.

infidel2 on June 24, 2008 at 11:40 AM

I am very very busy right now changing my shorts!

james hooker on June 24, 2008 at 11:41 AM

Larf? I nearly shat.

LimeyGeek on June 24, 2008 at 11:41 AM

You are such a tease!

jmarcure on June 24, 2008 at 11:41 AM

Very funny. The clip really reminds me of the movie Idioracy.

I only WISH the SC had those kind of Nads.
we have become such wussies….

No.. I’m not saying kill those whose DNA evidence has overturned a conviction YEESH.

We used to hang horse thieves though… Just sayin’

THAT.WAS.AWESOME!!!!!!!

I watched that here at work and just burst out laughing. Needless to say I got the ‘looks’ from a couple of the libs in the office because they know what site I’m reading.

“I am the law.” Awesome. I liked the transcript look with all the Justices saying that multiple times.

Thanks for the early morning pick me up!

“Crazy Fuc*ing Dopeness Upheld”

Heh.

Hillarious, but triking me like that is not funny. infidel2 on June 24, 2008 at 11:40 AM

I hope you don’t get triked again.

Akzed on June 24, 2008 at 12:07 PM

Truly F***ing awesome!

abinitioadinfinitum on June 24, 2008 at 12:09 PM

The thing is, it’s really only half-joking when they have the Judges saying “I am the law.”

It’s funny because it’s true.

Sydney Carton on June 24, 2008 at 12:28 PM

How do they keep a straight face?

From the crawl:

Benicio Del Toro Signs Deal to Star in Benicio-del-Toro Language Film

HAHAHAHA Gotta love the Onion. And whoever wrote that news-channel music deserves a parody award.

inviolet on June 24, 2008 at 12:33 PM

How did they get Justice Ginsburg and Justice Souter to sign onto that opinion?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on June 24, 2008 at 12:34 PM

BEST ONION YET, BY FAR!

Ok, that’s a lie, the AQ/Truther fight was a pretty close second, but this one was just F’in awesome.

Much like the Roberts Supreme court, apparently. XD

Voidseeker on June 24, 2008 at 12:45 PM

How did they get Justice Ginsburg and Justice Souter to sign onto that opinion?

The convict was a republican.

TroubledMonkey on June 24, 2008 at 12:47 PM

F–kin’ A!

Ali-Bubba on June 24, 2008 at 12:48 PM

You know….you just know… that some nimrod will go to Kos or Huffington.. and reference the horror of this “true” report….lol

MNDavenotPC on June 24, 2008 at 12:56 PM

Sweet.

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on June 24, 2008 at 1:04 PM

I think that was my favorite onion yet.

BadgerHawk on June 24, 2008 at 1:06 PM

I am sending this clip to every lawyer I know (which is quite a lot actually). I loved it!!!!

HawaiiLwyr on June 24, 2008 at 1:24 PM

“…Democratic Party to change its mascot from donkey to snake eating its own tail…”

Dont forget to read the scrolling news ticker on the Onion reports.

AverageJoe on June 24, 2008 at 1:24 PM

The funny thing is, I didn’t make it all the way through. I don’t even consider myself particularly far-right, but it seems to me the Onion keeps sliding “lefter” all the time. The jokes get old, and profanity, in and of itself, isn’t funny.

It’s the same joke over and over and over and over….

Merovign on June 24, 2008 at 1:25 PM

The guys at The Onion must have been watching Idiocracy recently.

Don’t most SCOTUS rulings come out Tuesdays and Thursdays?

Entelechy on June 24, 2008 at 2:09 PM

BAHAHAHAH

Sir Andrew on June 24, 2008 at 3:09 PM

Best part is in the little ticker

“Washington Update: Dems to change party logo from Donkey to Snake eating its own tail”

Rbastid on June 24, 2008 at 3:27 PM

Excellent! If only the justices had each whipped out a large noisy pistol and fired it into the air during the DC Gun Ban case…we would have a court to be respected!

sabbott on June 24, 2008 at 4:05 PM

I think the Donkey is OK for the Dems, as long as it has it’s head firmly stuck up it’s ass…
