Palin Meme

Stolen from summer_queen:

The Meme: As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade.

The Rules: Post info about ONE Supreme Court decision, modern or historic, to your lj. (Any decision, as long as it's not Roe v. Wade.) For those who see this on your f-list, take the meme to your OWN lj to spread the fun.

How about Loving v. Virginia (1967)?

I always loved that the plaintiffs' name were so appropriate to the case.
ah! i had seen the meme going around without an explanation of why.

really, if she's really an evangelical and can name roe, she should be able to name griswold v connecticut -- that's what they're going after next.
Aaagh! She should have been able to state


off the top of her head!
Well, she was asked for another one she disagreed with. She probably agreed with that one.
Ah ha! I see the additional information I wasn't given. Thank you. That would then make a lot more sense than what I'd gotten. Whew.
Creationism struck down
Edwards v. Aguillard. But if she did that, every independent would certainly turn against her, although a vast majority already are due to her inarticulateness. I think she is doing dog whistle politics though, and is largely there to turn out the base for all the downticket Republican races.
ha! you picked my favorite case, for the same reason. Mildred just died, actually right around the time that CA made gay marriage legal.

I sure hope that some day we look back on same-sex weddings the same way we do with interracial ones. "Whu? People used to not be able to marry their partners because of a ... law?"

N and I would have been SOL not so long ago...
Exactly... *grins* I'm glad that I found a favorite of yours. *smiles*

*hugs* it'll be cool if the world is just that much better in 40 years the way it is better now than it was 40 years ago.
You know, I can't name one. I really can't. It's hard for me. I can describe some, though. Does that make me any good? XP

There's one case I studied where a man said "no" to a consent to search, and the wife said "yes."

I studied another one where police asked a woman if they could investigate an apartment, and she said yes. She had a key, and she let them in and showed them around. Only, she wasn't living there anymore, so the guy sued.

Then there was the religion one...about a girl, I think her name was Wanda, who was wearing a pentagram as her religion does. Only, gangs did, too, so the school freaked...

The Vietnam Black-Armbands of Peace case...

Tons of religious ones come to mind...

Sorry, I'm mostly going off topic so I can try to remember what I learned about Search and Seizure.
Heh. That's okay. It's kind of cool to see which ones you've studied, though. I definitely think it's good.
