We are currently living in an America where 10% of college graduates believe Judith Sheindlin aka Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court. And before you guffaw or turn to your coworker who doesn’t want to hear your opinion and say, “college kids these days!” think that perhaps it doesn’t have to be this way. What if instead of 10% of college graduates thinking that Judge Judy is on SCOTUS, 100% of college kids thought that Judge Judy is on SCOTUS.
While turning everyone into an idiot would be the easier way to accomplish this, the harder and righteous way would be to actually appoint Judge Judy onto our nation’s Supreme Court. Yes. So 100% of college grads would correctly believe that Ms. Sheindlin, a patron saint of sass and sanction, sat on our highest court.
I believe in that America. I dream of that America. Imagine sitting beside the honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the brutally honest and unforgiving woman who regularly says, “I’m the boss, Applesauce.”
Imagine the increase in judicial discourse, as SCOTUS proceedings would all be taped and aired on broadcast television! It’d also bring attention to every day crimes, like not giving your husband his TV back and snoopin.
The most beautiful thing about this dream is that it can be a reality. That’s how America works. We just have to vote Judge Judy onto the Supreme Court. Go out there and turn those dumb college grads’ misunderstandings into a wise crackin’ reality!
