    Sure we will. The Times has almost 6 months to pretend to not know things everyone else knows.

    looking forward to Trump v. Obama 2028.

    which the Supreme Court will nullify on the grounds that a President can’t serve a third term after he already served two consecutive terms. But a third term that’s a second consecutive term, that’s cool, because of Originalism.

    I generally don't blow up my money through fireworks, but I will probably celebrate in similar fashion when the orange baboon dies.

    this is what @xtomx and i said in the rittenhouse thread. it’s why the legal rulings in that case are completely stupid.

    it just becomes the wild west where you can shoot anyone who is worrying you on totally subjective grounds

    And then what?

    Vote for me so I can do absolutely nothing in your lifetime about the corrupted court.

    Now…if Dems (Biden chief amongst them) wanted to campaign on the fact that the court is corrupted…and because there is zero chance the Dems will ever have a senate supermajority necessary to remove said corrupt justices via impeachment/removal…that the only path forward is to expand the court (or live with it)…I’d be down for that messaging. Anything else is just pointless noise.

    Yes, Dems should talk about expanding the court. But IMO for now that’s best left to fringier Dems. Biden and Jeffries and Schumer should be pounding home the idea that our courts don’t work. Then it can be an issue in the 2028 presidential race.

    This shit takes time. It always does.

    Out of my depth here, but couldn't Dems with a majority in both chambers try to make the SCOTUS adhere to the same code of conduct as the rest of the judiciary? Can't they also (under the same premise of majorities) somehow change the works of the Appeals process so there's no judge shopping with extreme cases that end up in front of SCOTUS?

    Finally, what would it take for Biden to expand the court to lets say 15 judges and name all the new 6 members and create some sort of rotating panels of 5 judges so the SCOTUS becomes way more efficient in hearing cases?
