Well, ick

Stroke the bunny? Even by the standards of "video games" could that be any stupider of an idea?

If you're hitting someone and calling them a "dirty negro" then how is it possible for a court to say you weren't demonstrating real hatred?

The supreme court is no stranger to controversial judgements.

In recent years it has ruled that "an isolated and impulsive" pat on a woman's bottom at work did not constitute sexual harassment, and returned a verdict that a woman could not have been raped because she was wearing skin-tight jeans.

I suppose the Bush Administration is salivating over these Italian decisions. It's probably the kind of court they'd like to have.

And, finally, it's pretty clear that Lieberman is slipping off his pants and getting ready to jump into Bush's bed.

(Raw Story had good stuff today.)

Wait, so now you're providing evidence in support of Justice Scalia's point about not using international courts' rulings in US cases?

Justice Breyer vs. Justice Scalia debate

JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA: Well, most of those questions should be addressed to Justice Breyer because -- (laughter) -- because I do not use foreign law in the interpretation of the United States Constitution.

(later on)

JUSTICE BREYER: What's more important to me is the use of foreign law in dozens and dozens of much less glamorous cases.

I hope he's not talking about hate law or rape cases..

I support using international law. Which really isn't the same as "foreign" law.
