'Name a Supreme Court Decision' Question Really Confusing Candidates
At her debate, Christine O'Donnell couldn't come up with the name of a recent Supreme Court decision with which she disagreed, so why not ask this question of the dumb Republican candidate in your race, everyone? That's what Congressman John Adler did against his opponent, former Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jon Runyan. Hey, at least this guy could come up with a name of a Supreme Court decision! But no, that Dred Scott thing wasn't too recent.
When that was pointed out, Runyan couldn't come up with a Supreme Court case. But c'mon, what else has the Supreme Court ruled on besides Dred Scott? Basically nothing. That's one of two or three things they've ever ruled on. This is a gotcha question that has no place in our politics.
If they have a Heisman Trophy for good participation in trying to remember the name of a Supreme Court case, this guy should get it. [TPM]
