Some conservatives are misplacing their anger at the Supreme Court’s ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act, which denied benefits to legally married same-sex couples, is unconstitutional.
The Twitter account for SCOTUSblog, a site run by a group of law professors and lawyers and sponsored by Bloomberg Law, has been taking some of the heat and having fun with it:
You realize we have life tenure, right? RT @Randall701: @SCOTUSblog haven’t you bastards finished f***ing up the world yet? :)— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 27, 2013
The Supreme Court doesn’t have an official presence on Twitter, but perhaps those angry at SCOTUS can commiserate with parody Antonin Scalia.
