There are only two kinds of muppets

According to Dahlia Lithwick at Slate. I started reading her article for the Muppets. (Only two kinds? Hubbawaaaaaaa?!?!?! Surely Beaker is his own kind!)

Like I said, I started reading for the Muppets. But I stayed for the Supreme Court Analysis:

One possible explanation for the blossoming dysfunctionality of the current Supreme Court is that the Order Muppets have all but taken over. With exception of Justices Breyer and Antonin Scalia, the Order Muppets are running the show completely. (The jury is still out on whether Elena Kagan may prove a Chaos Muppet.) Remember the old rule of thumb: Too many Order Muppets means no cookies for anyone.

Hah! This is awesome!

But then it went back to the Muppet Theory of Marriage Counseling.

So I call on you, Internet: Put the Muppets back onto the Supreme Court.

Our democracy depends on it.

    What was the name of that evil frog-hunting dude from the first Muppet Movie? He had conservative businessman written all over him.
