‘Superbad’: Judd Apatow rages over Supreme Court’s campaign finance ruling


Oh, dear. The cuckoo pants is strong in this one. Writer, producer, and director Judd Apatow took to Twitter this morning to rant about the United States Supreme Court’s campaign finance decision handed down today.

I don't understand why anyone thinks a bunch of billionaires personally giving tens of millions of dollars to campaigns will benefit them.

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Um. Honey, we know this is hard to comprehend, but some people actually value The Constitution and freedom of speech. Not everyone looks at every issue just to see how it will benefit them personally. The real world is hard.

How many times do people need to get fucked before they wake up? The people who bankrupted the country want to make all the rules.

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

You mean like the Democrats and President Obama? Well, on that we can agree!

I think both sides have major problems, and it is all a mess, but don't put your faith in banks and and oil and gas companies.

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Put your faith in Hollywood! Arbiters of all and experts on everything.

@meolsen: .@JuddApatow You shouldn't be so down on the First Amendment; it's served you pretty well!” don't be a fool. They bought USA

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Shadowy groups, buying up the United States.

@dpjoh2 it is not about Hollywood. It is about rich very old men having enough money to get the government to serve them and not you

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Conspiracies! How very Illuminati! Or, to illustrate using a Hollywood reference, perhaps these rich old men are meeting at The Meadows? Do they call themselves “The Pentavirate,” by chance?

@markahorn funny how people who are fucked by the system like it. Wait till your grand kids can't afford clean water.

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Is there fluoride in that water?

@jessejames375: @JuddApatow They make all the rules and own all the judges” of course they do. And they convince people To Lower their tax

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

@MFB01826 or all. Come on. It is insane. And every new ruling makes it crazier. Should be a limit to spending. More debates.

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

There is something insane, but it’s not the Supreme Court decision. Still, he keeps going.

@catherinegee: @JuddApatow OK then, what, as individuals, can we do?” educate yourself for real. Dig deeper. Vote for who you really trust

Supreme Court Reversed Anti-Citizens United Ruling From Montana – aaaaagg!! More money in politics!!!! http://t.co/YEvkSduD

This is $$ from one dude. What do you think he wants for it? To help you? http://t.co/jqau1BB1

@JuddApatow Obama outspent McCain 3 to 1 in 2008 so what's the difference?

— Ken Murray (@murraymaker) June 25, 2012

We need a cap!

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Free speech should have limits! Or something.

“@IKillKitten4Fun: @JuddApatow When money buys power there is no free speech.” why is that so hard for many people to understand?

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

@JuddApatow @RawbM07 Obama opted out of public funding and swamped McCain (who pioneered finance reform) 4-to-1 in 2008. #paybacktime

— Twain (@MaxTwain) June 25, 2012

@RawbM07 when you add it up with pacs and all the hidden money Republicans will be way ahead. Even if Obama was ahead the rules must change

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

Ah! There’s the real reason. It may hurt precious The One. Isn’t that all that really matters? First Amendment, Shmirst Amendment! It’s okay when he gives money to the DNC or when Pig Maher gives a million to an Obama SuperPAC. Misogynists are excused from limits, we guess.

@8InchFloppyDisk you really think it is about that? Really? He is so worried about you keeping your money? That is all. Come on

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

@TheMotleyMind: @JuddApatow How much have you donated so far to DNC and Obama?” not 100 Million! You want me to be allowed to do that?

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

@murraymaker not about sides. There needs to be limits on all parties. Some regulations. Humans need limits sometimes. Don't be a lackey

— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) June 25, 2012

And Big Daddy government needs to set those limits for people, right? They take away your freedom because they love you. You might hurt yourself with it! How dare people try to decide anything for themselves?

Bless your heart. Stick to make-believe. You seem to prefer it to the real world anyway.

Twitter users agree and “knock him up” with some truth.

But of course you'll have no issue with Obama hitting 7 Fundraisers in the next two days? @JuddApatow

Says the millionaire. “@JuddApatow: I don't understand why billionaires giving tens of millions of dollars to campaigns will benefit them.”

— Matthew Bryan Beck (@iBeck) June 25, 2012

@JuddApatow I know! There should only be more money in international receipts for comedy!

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) June 25, 2012

@JuddApatow Stop writing checks if you are so concerned with less money in politics. Just another liberal hypocrite.

— TheFlyingV (@flyingv66) June 25, 2012

@JuddApatow @themotleymind It's your money.
