The "I'm smarter than Sarah Palin" meme - really -- who is not??

Ganked from gessatrude

As evidenced by Katie Couric, Sarah Palin is unable to name any Supreme Court Case other than Roe v. Wade. (She was also asked what newspapers or magazines she regularly reads. She couldn't or wouldn't name one.)

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

Tinker vs. Des Moines

ETA - [Tinker vs. Des Moines involved a student's right to free speech in schools via a message on a t-shirt. Though the court upheld that a student could be disciplined for causing a disruption, he could not be for just wearing the shirt, even if others took offense and caused a disruption because of it. Unless he himself stood up, shouted, whatever ~ he was not the one causing the disruption regardless of how inflammatory his t-shirt message was to others. <---- quick and dirty nutshell of the decision.]

[And ETA 2 - the actual ruling came from passive wearing of black armbands in protest of the Vietnam War w/o disturbance by the arm-band wearing students. I learned of the ruling when a "t-shirt debate" about logo/word/phrase shirts in schools became a ridiculously long thread at a forum years ago.]

W00t! I could be the Republican VP pick! Oh. Wait .....
