Samuel Alito


Supreme Court Fortune-Telling

Read the comic on Patreon.

The Supreme Court is going to do more bad things this session. Lots of people whose careers depend on covering the court will pretend the outcomes aren’t predictable, telegraphed, outcomes from the right-wing majority, but the results of complicated legal reasonings only law-knowers can understand.

This court sucks, has been wreaking havoc on the nation for the better part of a quarter century, and until the Democrats actually try mitigating the power the courts have accumulated, the rest of the century’s not looking any better. But don’t be uncivil about it. The important thing is that they’re all friends.

Camp Corruption

Another session of the Federalist Society’s judicial junta struck down affirmative action, the racial equality kind, at least. Rich legacy white failsons are still able to get admitted.

I’m not sure how many years of being screamed at to “VOTE!” I can take when these fascists strike down anything nerds like Leonard Leo and his billionaire donors don’t like. The courts have to be packed before it’s too late, if it’s not already.

Forgot to post this here over the holiday. Apologies!

Short week for Thanksgiving, even though I’m not traveling. COVID, flu, RSV, and even our dear old pal the common cold will be. Stay healthy out there.

The Monster Fash

Read the comic on Patreon.

The Criterion Channel launched some great Halloween collections this week, the same week the Supreme Court began a new session. So I’ve been enjoying the escapism from real horrors with fictional ones.

Until the court’s expanded, or ignoring their unenforceable rulings becomes commonplace, these six freaks are going to do a lot of damage. (Unless two of them croak while a Democrat is President, before they say that’s unconstitutional.)

There are many, and far superior Halloween novelty songs than the Monster Mash, but it’s hard to top Werewolf Bar Mitzvah and Monster Fuck.

The Power of Reactionary Thinking

The Supreme Court dropped some more steaming fascist turds since the last time I did a cartoon about them. Unless the court gets packed, or an [REDACTED] or two happens before the November midterms, I don’t see how our rights can be clawed back within my lifetime without some super-legal actions.

Forever Stamping Out Democracy

Read the comic on Patreon.

There was an unveiling ceremony for a new Nancy Reagan stamp at the White House this week. Combined with Biden’s claims of McConnell and other Republicans being reasonable, I’m not too confident that tonight’s insurrection hearing will have much effect on stopping our slide into fascism.

Happy to be wrong, though!

Quick Fixes for the Supreme Court

Read the comic on Patreon.

The repealing of Roe v. Wade was inevitable when Anthony Kennedy mysteriously retired. I’d love for the reason for that, or the identity of Kavanaugh’s debt-absolving benefactors to be leaked, too. Leaving Merrick Garland’s nomination to die on the vine and RBG dying for real were just gravy for the forced-birth freaks.

If this further overreach by Republicans goes without massive protests, the next coup’s going to make Bush v. Gore look like a sound legal opinion.

I didn’t draw or write anything illegal in the redacted panels, by the way. They are “Pray the Court Away,” and “A Vote Makes the Court Go Away!” if any FBI agent is asking.
