For the past week a nation has speculated as to who President Obama should appoint to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. If they haven’t be speculating on that, they’ve likely been speculating on what exactly the constitution means by “[the president] shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court.” Here at The Annual, we believe “The President” is defined as “The actual-goddamn-sitting president” and with that in mind, we hope this list of potential Supreme Court Justices makes its way to the oval office.
Supreme Justice Judy
10% of Americans already believe Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court and they seem pretty content with that. Why not let America’s lower 10% be right for a change, it’ll be a big win for the little guy.
Supreme Justice RGB2
Perhaps the most country and certainly Tumblr’s most popular judge, Ruth Bader Ginsberg deserves an extra seat in the court. We’re not suggesting that she be given two votes, but use the cloning technology readily available to create a second RGB. Given the accelerated rate of clone growth, RGB2 will reach her legal maturity much quicker than the original. If we start cloning tomorrow we can have RGB2 in a robe before general election.
Supreme Justice Advisory Counsel to Martin Shkreli
While we would never recommend placing Douchebag Supreme on the Supreme Court, his legal counsel has a solid hold on the constitution. Particularly the fifth amendment, but with so much emphasis placed on the first and second it’s important that lesser amendments get some attention as well.
Supreme Justice The Affluenza Teen’s Lawyer
The GOP’s biggest fear is that President Obama will appoint a judge with a progressive interpretation of the constitution. If that’s what Obama is truly aiming for, why not appoint a lawyer who understands the law so well that they can twist it and pervert it into meaning whatever they want?
Supreme Justice Lil’ Bub
Throughout her career Lil’ Bub has kept political affiliation close to her chest. No one’s entirely sure where she stands on any particular issue and that’s just how a Supreme Court Justice ought to be. Just look at that face, Supreme Justice Lil’ Bub could bring about a much needed return of innocence to our legal system.
