Klobuchar Challenges Judge Barrett on Roe v. Wade. My What a Face Plant.
Judge Amy Coney Barrett seems like the smartest person in the senate. She's probably the smartest person in whatever room she occupies. If you'll recall, yesterday the Splendiferous ACB (make it a thing, people) was asked to show the notes she referred to during the Democrat stump and campaign speeches, otherwise known as the "confirmation hearing." Instead of showing all her paperwork, ACB held aloft a blank notepad and cemented herself in history as a meme, a badass, and a damn queen. Or as the kids would say "kween." If I got that wrong, oh well, I'm in my mid-thirties and that's what happens. But the ACB train wasn't done splattering all that stood in the tracks. On Tuesday, Senator Amy Klobachur, who sometimes eats salad from a hair comb, tried putting ACB in a corner with a series of questions about the beloved Roe v. Wade. But rather than scoring a gotcha, Klobachur was treated to a little schooling of the embarrassing variety.
Here's Courtney's creative interpretation of how this exchange played out, with many liberties taken:
Dumb Amy: "Is Roe a 'super precedent'?"
Smart Amy: "How are you defining 'super precedent'?"
Dumb Amy: "I don't know, so let me look awkward and put it back on you."
Smart Amy: "Fair enough. In the article you're reading from, 'super precedents' are cases that are so widely agreed to be settled, no political actors and legal beagles who have even basic understandings of how laws work, think the case should be over-ruled. And since y'all have asked questions about your precious Roe v. Wade nearly all darn day today and yesterday, methinks it's not a secure a case at all. You know, just based on all your paranoia about me possibly overturning it at some point in the distant future."
Dumb Amy: "Lemme stall. So you say Brown vs. Board of Education is a super precedent, but what about Roe again, only with different words in hopes you give me a different answer."
Smart Amy: "As Richard Fallon from Harvard said, 'Roe is not a super precedent because calls for its over-ruling have never ceased.' But that doesn't mean it should be over-ruled. It just means that it doesn't fall in the small handful of cases like Marbury vs. Madison and Brown vs. The Board of Education that no one questions any more."
Dumb Amy: "What about this other case, is it a super precedent?"
Smart Amy: "Did your mother sniff glue while she was pregnant with you? How many times do I need to define super precedent for you before your brain registers the answer? Also, combs are for hair, forks are for food. In the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, you're more Ursula than Ariel."
A lot of creative liberties, so spare me the fact-check Facebook.
