Let's teach Sarah Palin about the Supreme Court! Everyone's probably heard by now of Sarah Palin, the Republican candidate for Vice President. What you may not have heard yet is that she is, as of this moment, unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade, as evidenced by Katie Couric. Seeing as how this woman could very well be our NEXT VICE PRESIDENT, I say we, the People, should take an active role in our government and teach her about this hallowed institution.

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

Here's a twofer - Bowers v. Hardwick in 1986, where the Supremes upheld the constitutionality of Georgia's sodomy law, and the 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision, where they reversed the earlier decision and declared all such laws unconstitutional.
