Lee is clever but the assertion he attempts to make that the Supreme Court is not political is a complete joke.

McConnell steals a seat on the court from Obama.  Brett Kavanaugh, under oath, testifies that "Roe v Wade is settled law", and then immediately flips once he is nominated.  It is true for Democratic nominees as well.

Nobody believes the court is interpreting the constitution anymore.  They haven't in many years.

Current faith in the Supreme Court is at an historic low of 25%

R v W was "settled" in error. It is now where it should of been for 40 years. Kavanaugh and the others finally corrected the mess. In time the people will see. If you can find abortion in there please show us. There is that sticky little phrase you hate so much, all powers not listed revert to the states though.

The Supreme Court is very political.

These are human beings with clear political bias which is why presidents and parties seek to appoint as many judges as possible based on their picks of individuals with a conservative or liberal track record that lines up with their parties ideology.

This couldn't be more clear.

When it comes to decisions, both sides often have solid points with legal justification .......that's almost always why these cases make it to the Supreme Court.

Then, as we expect, controversial cases are a split decision, with liberal judges all voting one way and conservative judges all voting the opposite way.

How much more evidence than that do you need as proof of how political the Supreme Court is?

Conservative Judges will "find" legal and Constitution/or otherwise  based solid justification for their positions.

Liberal judges will "find" legal and Constitutional or otherwise based solid justification for their positions.

When Supreme Court decisions go against one party, they will be upset and attack the Supreme Court, even if the ruling has sound reasoning.

On decisions that go in favor of that party........the Supreme Court was doing the right thing, basing it on their correct interpretation of the Constitution. 

In this case, the liberals attack on the Supreme Court has gotten WAY out of hand, even if the Supreme Court is clearly political.........and always has been. 

They scream about MAGA people with good justification........then display the  exact same behavior themselves on numerous issues.........Supreme Court/abortion, 2020 riots, fake climate crisis.

Both parties are massively hypocritical and accuse the other party of doing exactly what the gatekeepers  in their party cause them to do.

I'm ok with it being decided in the states.  At least we are in agreement that Kavanaugh lied under oath.
