Justice Alito: A Fancier “You Lie”
Okay, maybe not a fancier “You Lie”, but more refined, shall we say. I wonder if Maureen Dowd will hear an “unspoken ‘boy’ in the air” at the end of this one, due to the “history of racism” in Alito’s home state of — New Jersey.
POLITICO’s Kasie Hunt, who’s in the House chamber, reports that Justice Samuel Alito mouthed the words “not true” when President Barack Obama criticized the Supreme Court’s campaign finance decision.
“Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections,” Obama said. “Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.”
The shot of the black-robed Supreme Court justices, stone-faced, was priceless.
As Allahpundit said, “When you hear the president of the United States demagoging the First Amendment, you sit there and you take it, son.”
Huh. Looks like Obama really has brought about that change thing; now even Supreme Court Justices aren’t immune to the Left’s demagoguing – even during the State of the Union address.

P.S. Joe Wilson: from South Carolina and I live there now. Justice Alito: from New Jersey, where I was born, raised and lived for 33 years. Thus, I get to claim credit for both of them. Sweet!
