This is a bit like Howard Dean’s meltdown Monday that the Supreme Court “was killed” when it decided Bush v. Gore back in 2000 and forever lost all credibility. We don’t remember Dean complaining, though, when the Supreme Court decided things like same-sex marriage during the Obama administration. Funny how that works.
Now we have Vox founder Ezra Klein, who’s been doing a lot of concern-tweeting about “fixing” the broken and increasingly “anti-democratic” Supreme Court. Imagine this visual:
It's going to be quite a visual when five men overturn Roe. https://t.co/inbITwHYy8

When five men overturn Roe? Um, what about the visual when Roe v. Wade was decided by the Supreme Court?
As good as the visual when seven men decided it? https://t.co/9n47xkB9Ip

It was also quite a visual when 7 men decided in favor of Roe. https://t.co/G26Tt0mznb

It will be better than visual in 1973 when seven men invented a constitutional right out of thin air and disenfranchised the entire nation of deciding for themselves electorally on the question of abortion. https://t.co/fWiArVqAe3

It's going to be quite a visual when Ezra Klein learns how to use a simple Google search and read Wikipedia. https://t.co/q0VODPwWGq

Why? It was seven MEN who put Roe into place in the first place. https://t.co/gofqwdMOFx

But wouldn’t that be an example of men exercising control over women’s “reproductive health?” It’s gotta be overturned on that basis alone.
It won't, really. It'll be five dudes in black robes revoking a horrific decision by seven dead dudes in black robes. https://t.co/LjlYBT0OTd

Men put Roe into place, since you aparently have a bad memory. https://t.co/xIzB3uNhaM

Did you have a problem when seven men initially ruled for it? https://t.co/QCRndo1kpU

This tweet is so embarrassing for @ezraklein.
Do you know who decided Roe in the first place?! SEVEN MEN
Yes, quite a visual that 7 men made it easier for men to use women with 0 consequences, and for women to allow themselves to be used. https://t.co/v25ETCXeee

Imagine tweeting this, when Roe was originally decided by seven men. https://t.co/ldPvTK73GR

It’s officially lit o’clock on Twitter with the hot takes https://t.co/1Geopx6L4W

Here’s a hot take: who cares about the “visual,” besides all the hysterical protesters running around in “Handmaid’s Tale” cosplay?
UH OH! Ezra Klein's spots something VERY 'dangerous' about the Supreme Court (now) https://t.co/iiIreq0lSJ
