The Tingle Pundit has done it again today’s Supreme Court decision regarding Arizona’s illegal immigration law that he started drooling stupid things:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let me finish tonight with the Supreme Court. Does anyone wonder, like I do, what this Supreme Court, the one personified by Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, would have done in the landmark decisions of the post-World War II era? I wonder whether this court would have backed desegregation in the Brown case? I doubt this pack of conservatives, which includes Chief Justice John Roberts, Sam Alito, and Anthony Kennedy, would have voted to knock down separate by equal back in the 1950s. I doubt this group would have removed organized prayer from schools back in the 1960s, that decision that ignited the Moral Majority. I doubt that this court would have recognized a woman’s right to decide on an abortion in the 1970s. Let me proffer a tougher judgment: Would this court, voting as it does today, have upheld the 1964 Civil Rights bill? The statute which declared it illegal to refuse access to someone because of race to a restaurant, hotel, gas station restroom? Would Scalia, Thomas, Alito, and Kennedy approved such a decision or would they have joined in the dissent? Well, maybe Kennedy would have. The fact is we have the most conservative court since the early 1930s and maybe more conservative than that. These justices, led by Scalia, believe in original intent. They want to judge cases the way the Founding Fathers would. Well, the Founding Fathers, need I remind us all, wrote slavery into the Constitution. It took a civil war and the 13th Amendment to get it out. That’s Hardball for now.
