Politicizing the Supreme Court

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on June 25, 2011

The effort is underway, and as is made clear, it is driven by the desire to delegitimize any future Supreme Court decision that might find that the health care reform bill passed last year is unconstitutional. The concerted campaign to cast unwarranted aspersions on conservative Supreme Court Justices is certainly a dangerous development, and would likely be getting a lot more attention if the shoe were on the other foot, and liberal Supreme Court Justices were being subjected to constant and unfair attacks from Republicans in Congress.

Oh, and if a Republican Administration had attacked Supreme Court Justices during a State of the Union Address, the punditocracy would long ago have been up in arms about the politicization of justice.
