From comments at Joe.My.God.:

Schrodinger's douchebag: A guy who says offensive things & decides whether he was joking based upon the reaction of people around himOriginally in reference to tRump's second recent "joke" about assassinating Hillary Clinton, but applicable to a lot of situations!

Many misogynists claim that their outrageous putdowns of women are "just joking"... but jokes in fact serve a social function. People in the in-group, who share the joke-teller's worldview, will find a joke funny (and thinkable at some level); if you find it offensive, you're not in the intended in-group.

More, including Jason Steed's Twitter lecture, at the Vox article http://www.vox.com/2016/8/9/12417100/donald-trump-assassinate-hilla... .

Oh yeah, that fucking district.  I don't know how it slipped my mind, but of course that district is the one that includes Texas.  Duh.

Yeah, that's the federal district court that forced a Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, since every other district court ruled in favor of gay marriage.

Comment by Loren Miller on June 28, 2016 at 5:03am

Joseph, if I understand correctly, the lower court ruling UPHELD the law, so a 4-4 decision would have been disastrous.  Justice Kennedy was the key factor here, and I can't help but notice that Larry, Curly and Moe wrote some rather "sour-grapes" dissents!

Still, this is a VERY BIG DEAL and I for one and glad of it!

I'm going to start volunteering for this sort of thing soon, actually.

Amazing news! All the more reason to help like-minded friends who haven't already done so register, get proper ID if they need it, and VOTE!

Judges for federal district courts and appeals courts are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate as well.

Comment by Joseph P on June 27, 2016 at 9:30pm

Nice ... and a 5-3, not just a 4-4 upholding of a lower court's ruling.  For all of the crap that Kennedy votes for, which you would think would be a blatant violation of the first amendment, at least he's firmly behind reproductive rights.

Of course, since there's never a religious argument made in favor of an anti-choice law — at least not officially — since most (but not all) of the zealots behind the legislation aren't stupid enough to stick something like that onto it, there's no reason for Kennedy to flip.

Hopefully we can get a more consistent replacement for Kennedy, when he goes.  Sadly, Roberts and Alito are probably going to be around for a long time.  Thomas is a bit older, but I think he's in pretty good shape.

In the "you can't make this stuff up" category, PayPal holds a panel to discuss workplace gender equality, and all male panel.

Like over here? I never wore a bra until the weight made me buy one, somewhere between 30 and 40.
