The Supreme Teases still haven’t handed down decisions on Obamacare and Arizona’s immigration law, but this morning they gave us a little somethin’ somethin’ to get us through the weekend: a tasty SEIU smackdown.

You know what happens when the Supreme Court overturns a Ninth Circuit decision?

The right side of the Twitterverse celebrated the decision.

Bad news for @SEIU is always good news for America.

— John Nolte (@NolteNC) June 21, 2012

SEIU loses 7-2. A victory for working people who don't want unions forcing them to give to political campaigns.

My favorite words in the English language, from SCOTUSBlog: "The Ninth Circuit is reversed."

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) June 21, 2012

SEIU strong-arm, coerced dues tactics against its own workers EXPOSED, overruled by SCOTUS. Rank&file workers, 1. Big Labor goons, 0.

In the last couple of years the SCOTUS has ruled if favor of SuperPACs and against unions… God bless America.

There is one possible downside.

The good news is that SEIU was defeated by SCOTUS. The bad news is 7 justices have just entered witness protection.

Keep up the good work, President Obama.

All that money spent electing Obama, and his first SCOTUS pick rules against #SEIU.

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) June 21, 2012

I love that Barack Obama presided over the death of unions.
