Justice Milian rules after this

So the senate has a bill pending that would require supreme court proceedings to be televised. Um, why? It’ll just confirm our belief that the justices don’t even care about the law, they just ask a few questions and then decide based on their political views. (on a side note, it’s appalling that you can usually tell in advance the voting patterns of the court just based on the politics of a case).

Plus, have you ever seen C-Span? Or been to a trial? It’s boring as fuck! What they really should do is set up a system like they had with the Michael Jackson trial. Bring in some actors, reenact what happened each day, but only the juicy bits, with some commentary on the side. Maybe have James Gandolfini as Scalia, Kevin Spacey as Roberts, Denzel as Thomas. Now that would be good television. Otherwise, leave me with my People’s Court and Judges Judy, Alex, Joe Brown, and Hatchett, and get the hell outta my TV.

i think i would like it if they televised it...for a few days. i'd get very sick of it, but at first i think it would be interesting to see the justices in action. then i'd probably just get mad and break my tv.

I LOVE Judge Milian. Have you noticed that when she gets mad, her Cuban accent comes out more and more? I love that.... :)
