On New Year’s Eve, following a performance by Miley Cyrus, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will push the button to drop the ball in Times Square in New York City. It sounds as if party organizers want to make 2013 “the year we officially saw everything.”

“Celebrity” Supreme Court justices? Probably not the best of ideas.

Here’s a buzzkill:

Hopes = Dashed.



  • Juan Pablo

    What a surprise that an Obama appointee would be so common

  • Fairfax51

    Every day I am more and more ashamed of America. Now we have a SCOTUS that changes laws to be able to uphold them, a POTUS named liar of the year and now a Supreme Court Judge in Times Sq with a twerker. Is she going to twerk? I’m sick.

    • GotMyLoveGlassesOn

      I would actually be more comfortable with Sotomayor twerking and Miley on the Supreme Court.

      • Fairfax51

        As scary as that is, I think you are right. Sotomayor knows right from wrong and how to get around it. Miley….nuf said.

    • ThaddeusQuackenbush

      So move elsewhere.

      • Fairfax51

        NO…I am going to be a big part of getting people like you, with morals like yours and attitudes like yours OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE. Hide you somewhere. Shove the constitution in a closet with you and not let you come out until you READ it. Cowards move. No I intend to be in the way of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA going any farther down your liberal hill. America is a place we should be able to be proud of and as soon as we oust you Progressives, it will be again.

  • mhojai

    Salute the New Year with Socialism and crass stupidity!
    (And CNN’s returning the classless tramp with Cooper) clearly not worth staying up for.

    • Fairfax51

      When I lived on the west coast, i never missed it. It came at 9pm, midnight eastern.

  • Calcat36

    Miley is the tramp that will ride the big ball down. Who is sodomizer again?

    • Fairfax51

      New guy. His name is Gomorrah

  • arttie

    Is Miley going to ride this ball too?

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Two people equally qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice…

  • Guest

    Miley swings on balls, Sotomayor doesn’t touch balls.

    • DixieAngel_76

      She probably has a set of her own to fondle all she wants.

    • Calcat36

      Not a very Christian thing to type, no?

      • Electradivine

        You didn’t know that the right loves to throw the good book at others instead of actually opening it?

      • QueenB ✓

        How so?

        • Zach Brewer

          Didn’t you know? You can’t even crack jokes about liberals any more. You can’t do anything. Just accept it, agree with everything they say and move on like good little sheep. Anything else is pure, unadulterated, un-Christian hatred.

          • ThaddeusQuackenbush

            What’s it like to live in your sad, paranoid world, Zach Brewer?

          • Zach Brewer

            You must have the wrong Zach, my brother. My world is anything but sad or paranoid.

            Sorry you didn’t like, or get, my joke.

            But keep trolling if it makes you happy!

          • ThaddeusQuackenbush

            Were you using the sarcastic font? If so, then good one.

          • Zach Brewer

            As the dog returns to it’s vomit, so a fool returns to his folly. Or, in this case, so a troll returns to Twitchy. Welcome back.

  • Perry

    Sotomayor and balls in the same sentence just isn’t right, unless she brings Kagan and her strap on with her.

    • Paige Jackson

      LA LA LA LALAAAAA, I am thinking now of fat happy puppies, frolicking in sunny meadows with very old nuns. LA LA LAAA

    • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Thumbs down! OMG lol

  • DixieAngel_76

    Eeeew. Just, eeew.

  • Paige Jackson

    Somewhere Robin Thicke is hanging his Beetlejuice costume in the closet and heaving a sigh of relief.

    Could we get a ruling from the wise Latina on forcing that hillbilly Petri dish to keep her filthy coated tongue INSIDE her mouth for ten minutes?

  • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Isn’t that one of the signs of the apocalypse?

    • Jay Stevens

      Miley’s tongue or Sonia Sotomajor appearing in Times Square on New Year’s Eve?

      • Paige Jackson

        Probably the latter; Methy O’Twerk’s tongue hanging out just means she’s awake.

        Well, it also means everyone in NYC better have stocked up on Purell.

      • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        The both being in proximity. 😀

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Dick Clark, where are you now that we need you?
    Hell, I’ll even settle for TheRealGuyLombardo.

    • Emily B

      He’s rolling over in his grave.

    • Paige Jackson

      He had the good sense to vacate the planet before this all went down. Some things are just too nasty to countenance.

  • Maxx

    A colossal waste of time…

    …someone else in Washington has already dropped the ball.

  • $29561723

    My favorite Wise Latina.

  • Joshua Embrey

    Where’s the sex tape?

    • Paige Jackson

      I hope you meant “duct tape”, but if not, just…carry on, then.

  • vino veritas

    Just what Times Square needs.. more trash. I guess this makes sense since they both share the same level of credibility. Maybe if someone angles the ball just right before it drops this could turn out to be the best New Year celebration of the century.

    • ThaddeusQuackenbush

      More trash in Times Square? Why, is the Canadian Ted Cruz going to be there?

  • Axelgreaser

    AND I THOUGHT KATHY GRIFFIN AND ANDERSON COOPER performing faux oral sex was a putrid way of welcoming in a New Year, but a Supreme Court Justice doing something this disturbing and degrading when part of an already very questionable court we no longer trust, is beyond the pale. Just grotesque. Two thumbs WAAAAY DOWN!

    • Love of Country

      That wasn’t Kathy Griffith, old friend. That was Carrot Top! Or at least that’s what Anderson Cooper was quoted as saying when he was later asked about why in the world he had been kissing some ugly girl that night.

      • Axelgreaser


  • Pat

    and snoop with our sos….Federal appointees really know how to make fools of themselves.

  • Love of Country

    It’s always a race to the bottom with these liberals/communist sympathizers/Muslum Brotherhood sympathizers. And it’s just so sad to see someone from the SCOTUS propping up and elevating one of the country’s worst role models. They’ll prolly twerk each other’s face on camera and then defend it the next day like it was nothing.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      The only thing I can add to your great comment is as the wise Latina elevates the country’s worst role model, she diminishes herself. So sad all around.

    • ThaddeusQuackenbush

      I’d say the Republicans already won the race to the bottom. Just ask any mouth-breathing troglodyte who watches Fox News.

  • Perry

    Went from annual Dick Clark to a Dick hater. There’s your fundamental change Obama was talking about.

  • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

    So another douche and a dipsh*t will be in New York on new years? Just add to Bloomberg and the rest of the DBs there.

    • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

      I vote for a St. Louis New Years celebration, get away from New York, DC and Hollywood.

  • $41378716

    We can all hope for a tragic out of control ball accident for these two “lovelies”.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      Nope. Over the line.

      • $41378716

        I disagree. Nothing like a King Kong vs. Mothra moment on New Year’s Eve. If Kathy Griffin is around, she can play Fay Wray, though she’ll probably have to fight Anderson Cooper for Kong’s attention. Either way, Sotomayor and Smiley whoopin’ it up during a failed drop would be nothing short of poetic.

        • ThaddeusQuackenbush

          Bet you call yourself a Christian too.

          • $41378716

            Then again, I bet you call yourself a human being. *shrug*

      • $41378716

        Again, no Karmic justice!
        Apparently, they are meant for bigger and better Karmic events!
        A girl can always hope. :)


  • FirstBoot

    The “wise Latina” is going to rub elbows with the plebes. She’ll probably be sporting her White House issued “I heart Obamacare” t-shirt and passing out key-chains that say “get covered” with the 1-800-FU number emblazoned on the front.

    • Perry

      She’s living proof Affirmative Action is a failure.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        Indeed. She is so incredibly racist and writes her opinion based on race and not a true or honest interpretation of the Constitution. But, ya know…..Heeeeeeeey homies, we have a Latina on the bench!

        • Perry

          It’s ridiculous. When Obama nominated her he just kept harping on her ethnicity. What difference does it make? She was unqualified. She even talked about her needing Affirmative Action in College. This is not good!

  • desicon

    It should come naturally to her. She has practice in dropping the constitution, law, jurisprudence and judicial etiquette.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    Ugh – is it too much to ask the any and all members from all three branches of our government to not act like wannabe celebrities and treat their roles with some grace and dignity?

    • capisce

      You’d think a ‘wise Latina woman’ would see the wisdom of maintaining the decorum her position warrants.

      • nc ✓s & balances

        You’d think a “wise Latina” in her position would be embarrassed to be known as that publicly.

      • ThaddeusQuackenbush

        Like Antonin Scalia, who has been grand marshal of the NY Columbus Day parade?

  • stuckinIL4now

    This is exactly NOT what the founders envisioned for Supreme Court justices.

  • Dandapani

    Heck, celebrity judge? Judge Sotomayor was on Sesame Street few years back. They kept rubbing viewers noses in her glorious Hispanic-ness. They kept emphasizing her Hispanic name with extreme emphasis, “SO-TOE-MY-EE-OR”, like the news anchors do when pronouncing foreign names.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      So irritating.

    • Hot_wings

      If Judge Sotomizor is on SS, then I am glad my daughter lost interest in the show….’cause it will never come on the TV in my home !

  • Janice LEE

    Let’s see…..who to watch………Anderson Cooper getting his crotch kissed or NYC getting twerked by miley and Sonia.

  • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

    The Supreme Court dropped the ball on Obamacare, they should be well practiced on dropping balls.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      GMTA, sorry, I posted before I read your comment!

  • Not The Penguin

    The “Honorable” Justice Sotomayor? um…yeah. This country is so f*cked.

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    What’s next? Will she dye her hair red and be the new Wendy’s girl?

  • Marvin Nelson

    The image of Sotomayor twerking is now burned into my memory. Between not watching this crap or the Tournament of Roses Parade, I will have time to organize my matchbook collection. Can’t decide whether to sort them alphabetically or by category.

  • Pat

    Damn, a sure sign that 2014 is going to be even worse then 2013 has been. Depressing.

  • notenoughtime

    For a Supreme Court justice to drop the ball at Times Square pretty much highlights the continuing downward spiral this once great country is on and put on bullet train daily by the policies and nominations from our Prez.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      The courts sure have been dropping the ball a lot lately on plenty of subjects…

  • Pedro

    Justice S. Please resolve to do what you do.. which is being a supreme court justice… better in 2014. Stay out of the pop culture. Stop whitening your teeth and perming your hair. Stay off network TV. No one cares about your New Year’s eve comments.

  • Joe Crowe

    Oh. The racist Sotamayor? The one who said, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

    I’m trying to imagine what the response might be if two words were changed: “I would hope that a wise Anglo-Saxon woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a Latino male who hasn’t lived that life.”

    It would be just as ignorant (and dangerous coming from a Supreme Court Justice), but would the response have been more robust?

    Run Miley, run before association with a racist ruins your good name!


  • Anthony

    Two reprehensible human beings!!

  • Leende

    I turn on the tv 5 minutes before 12 watch the ball come down and then turn it off.

  • JoeMyGodNYC

    Other prominent New Yorkers that have pressed the button to drop the Times Square ball on New Year’s Eve: Rudy Giuliani and Colin Powell, who was raised in the same South Bronx neighborhood as Justice Sotomayor.

    • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

      I think it’s the combination, not the person who’s dropping the ball….her lead in is Miley Cyrus. I guess it fit’s media circus format?

    • mickeyco

      Don’t you see any difference between them and a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court? Not the same to me.

  • FarmGirl

    Miley will twerk the judge then?
    I just barfed with that visual

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Miley’s gonna ride the ball down signing “Wrecking Ball”, with Sotomayor standing there?

    Nothing, and I mean nothing, could be more poetically apropos

  • ceemack

    “Two women who have no business on the Supreme Court on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve!”

  • https://youtu.be/h82D5ZvcALM CrustyB

    Sonia Sotomayer and Miley Cyrus. So one is qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice and the other is a Puerto Rican from New York.

  • Ed McDowell

    What?!! They put random lib/progressive names in a hat and came up with Sawedoffmyear? I guess.

  • hatsylady

    Why watch that? Sounds like the opposite of ringing in a great New Year. Blech!!!

  • MrApple

    Maybe it’s just me but I think that a Supreme Court Justice should present a more dignified image to the country and the world than ringing in the New Year with the queen of twerk. This is a position which defines laws and has LONG LASTING EFFECTS on the country and its people. Have some damn dignity why don’t you.

  • ToyZebra

    So a Supreme Court Justice is now in the same category as a pop celebrity. I pray our country can hold on long enough to regain its lost dignity.

  • Stephen Dalton

    I’d watch this if Miley got a long overdue mouth soaping and spanking for her bad behavior!

    • Brian Roastbeef

      Well I’d say its probably about even money that she gets spanked. As for what goes into her mouth… probably won’t be soap, sadly.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Why not, she drops the ball every time she takes the bench.
    Shes figured out what shes good at and shes sticking to it.

  • mickeyco

    Somehow I just can’t picture Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. dropping the ball at Times Square.

  • bill_a_bob

    I don’t believe Justice Sotomayor has any ball handling/dropping experience.

  • ThaddeusQuackenbush

    Sotomayor is just following in the footsteps of Justice Antonin Scalia:

    In 2005, Justice Scalia, the first Italian-American Supreme Court justice, served as grand marshal of New York’s Columbus Day Parade, an honor previously given to actress Sophia Loren, among others. Like other justices, he speaks often at law schools. But he’s also addressed incoming House Republicans.
