There was no “You Lie!” childish outburst from the loyal opposition during President Obama’s first State of the Union Address on Wednesday.
However, there was a Supreme Court justice who just couldn’t hold back some form of emotion, even one as subtle as mouthing it under his breath.

When Obama chided the justices for passing the corporations can contribute as much as they want to political campaigns and so be it if foreign influence would get it’s greasy little hands on it, Alito was caught on camera mouthing the words “not true.”
It was a jab by the president that Republicants said was hitting below the belt because he said it on national TV in front of God and everybody.
Tough Miranda rights.
The prez was right to call the five Bushies out on this one —- and he picked the right venue.
Hello, American Revolution!
We exist as Americans because our forefathers fought and died so we could be free from foreign influence.
Alito was wrong on two fronts when he moved his lips as if he was a lousy ventriloquist:
1. Justices are supposed to be quiet and impartial (you’ve heard of blind justice, how about mute justices) whatever any president says during his State of the Union address.
2. Who is to stop foreign corporations from giving money to a presidential candidate like, God forbid it should ever come to it, Glenn Beck? And who says foreign corporations haven’t already influenced presidential elections with gobs of moola to get that candidate’s message across through those hypnotizin’ TV ads?
Hell, China has our money.
Things overheard in the House chamber during Obama’s State of the Union Address:
1. “I heard Ruth Bader Ginsburg is nekkid under her robes.”
2. “I’m missing “America’s Next Top Model” for this crap?”
3. “I don’t believe it. Palin just tweeted me —– she wants to know if Diana Ross was once on the Supreme Court.”
4. “I didn’t recognize Sen. John Ensign without the woman he says is the best on his staff.”
5. “Are you sure Harry Reid is still breathing?”
6. “Orders from Rush —— we’re all supposed to sit on our hands and hold our breath until we turn blue in the face.”
7. “I thought I saw Dan Quayle outside parking cars.”
8. “He’s been in office a year already? It seems like only yesterday when we started to discredit him.”
9. “Who do you think would win in a mud wrestling contest, Hillary or Sonia Sotomayor?”
10. “Are we sure we want to have control of this mess?”
