Four godawful Supreme Court decisions, that’s what:
The Supreme Court went on a rampage today: weakening McCain-Feingold, barring ordinary taxpayers from challenging the White House’s faith-based initiatives in court, siding with businesses over environmentalists in a dispute about endangered species, and ruling against a student who unfurled a “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” banner in school (no, really).
Worth noting: All of those decisions were 5-4, Alito and Roberts wrote two majority opinions apiece, and in all cases, the court liberals–Ginsburg, Stevens, Souter, Breyer–were on the dissenting end of things.
Days like today really make me wish that Iowa had voted for someone other than Kerry in 2004. Because having five or six solid, liberal Supreme Court members would be really quite nice.
