So, the neighbor used an accurate descriptor for Alito's Christo-fascist wife. Perfectly understandable. If she has to interact with the Alitos again, here's a song she can use. It seems to follow UK/Australia/New Zealand rules, so can apply to her husband as well.

I bet Sammy and Martha-Ann had hot, consensual double dates with Mike Pence and Mother before the Alito’s shunned Mike for failing to single-handedly subvert democracy on J6. Now things are…awkward.

The levity is soothing, but the reality that we allow this kind of extremism on our scotus that shapes the laws we live by is horrifying. Plus, it’s evident that Mrs. Alito wears the same shade of MAGA red lipstick as Lauren QBert, the shade that would cause Mike Pence to lose all self-control if he were without a chaperone.

Emily Baden is a role model, along with Juli Briskman, the woman riding her bike who gave Trump the finger.

And I really hope this doesn't go away. The Senate Judiciary Committee needs to have Alito appear in front of them and explain how he is not compromised. I would expect his head to explode.

Totally agree if the Senate Judiciary Committee fails to act this summer and demand Alito appear to explain why on earth he shouldn’t recuse himself from 85% of the cases he hears, let alone resign from the scotus, it’s a dereliction of duty.

Sounds like a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

The old folks always complained that we went from big front porches where you could sit and watch the world go by and interact with your neighbors to little stoops designed to do little more than keep your packages out of the rain while everything's centered on backyards and decks.

All well and good until you live next to a Republican.

Samuel and Marsh-Ann Alito are Christian Ultra Nationalist Traitors.

Ta, Evan. It was not I; I did not call Martha-Ann a cunt. Her even more disgraceful husband, on the other hand ....

The Paradox of MAGA men…Catholic Dominionist/Christian Nationalist, whose worldview envisions male supremacy in the home and beyond, boldly asserts control over every womb in the nation while (and maybe because) he can’t get a handle on the little woman, even under his own roof.

He likes how nutty and feisty she is. It gives him a tiny, crooked boner in his Christian underpants.

An old story. Eve hands Adam the fruit, he takes a bit, realizes what deep shit they're in and immediately says, "She made me do it."

Prof Melissa Murray talked with Joy Reid about the extent to which Alito is basically giving two huge middle fingers to the country, but it's not up yet

Let's start with the photo up top. I can forgive the prudish expression; if I had to spread my legs for Sammy, I'd look like I'd just sucked off a lemon, too.

And you can literally smell the make-up from here.

I think I wrote a while back that the maga-red lipstick is made of ground up red Trump ties and a mixture of alcohol from Steve Bannon’s bathtub and adrenochrome, because why should Tom Hanks get to have all the fun?

Martha-Ann is the poster child for church-goin' women, with mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces.

i heard somebody somewhere today (i think tim miller) say alcohol was a (well known) thing and no one will talk about it.

makes me sad and also feels correct.

oh wow. That's just sad. Still doesn't account for or excuse her resting smug face.

or her stupid name. i just thought it was interesting that in this day and age, there might still be some things that don't immediately spread around the world.

If I leave my thumb -- either one, I still have both -- if I leave my thumb under water for a real long time so it gets pasty-white wrinkled and then take it out and draw a little face on it, well, it looks just like Alito! And then we have a quiet talk just before I dunk it under water again.

Did wonkette approve this use of the C word?

If someone had explained to me earlier that Mrs. Alito's first name was "Martha-Ann" this whole thing would have made a lot more sense

Expand full comment

Maybe Mrs Alito just got called the c-word because it was accurate. Occam’s razor, bitches

No. Let John Waters make a movie about this shitshow. THEN it will be hilarious.
