We Surf So You Don't Have To


Couric Stumps Palin with Supreme Court Question: Personally, I would have come back all smart-assed with “Y’know, Katie, I’ve never been fond of Plessy. SCOTUS really screwed the pooch on those.” I definitely think there’s something to this “gotcha journalism” charge. But I can name eleven decisions off the top of my head, after the jump, to varying degrees of judicial precision.

  1. Marbury v. Madison
  2. Lochner v. New York
  3. Plessy v. Ferguson
  4. Brown v. Board of Education
  5. Miranda v. Arizoan
  6. Pacifica
  7. Roe v. Wade
  8. Dred Scott
  9. Northern Pacific
  10. That one that struck down the NRA
  11. Kelo

After reviewing this list, I of course slapped my forehead repeatedly.
