Maddow Mocks Supreme Court’s Lack of Tech Savvy via Puppetry

By

Whoever Obama nominates to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat, it would appear that if he or she has even a rudimentary understanding of how text messages and e-mails work, the justice will have a significant leg up on his or her peers. Earlier this week, during a case examining whether or not a California police department violated the rights of an employee when it inspected personal texts sent and received on the individual’s pager, the justices revealed a serious lack of understanding of, well, pretty much all aspects of technology.

It began with John Roberts asking for an explanation of the difference between an e-mail and a pager (seriously) ... and it devolved from there. On her show tonight, Rachel Maddow turned to finger puppets to help her lampoon the proceedings.
