Elie Mystal: “Wherein The Supreme Court Is Reduced To A Sideshow”


BTW, if Mr. Mystal is right and we forget about how the new administration is directly and intentionally attacking the legitimacy of the federal judiciary this week, and instead talk about whether the nominee is more or less like Scalia, this nomination will be entirely meaningless. Any nominee, no matter who it is, should tell the President “no thanks” if he (and it’ll be a “he”, we all know that) is being picked because he won’t vote against the current administration. Sadly, we also all know that’s exactly why the nominee chosen will have been chosen.
