OMGWTF Precedents

slipperyhodge on Sen. DeWine's comments at the Alito hearings:
We haven't even touched on double-super-secret-uber precedents, which only the Justices themselves know about (see Bush v. Gore), way-mondo-really precedents, which trump almost everything else (see Marbury v. Madison), and OMGWTF precedents, which may only be issued about fan fiction or when overturning Constitutional rights established by a previous Court.
Emphasis added.
