Now the Washington Post is running pieces on Dems packing the court to save democracy

As if there were any question as to whether there’s any difference left between the major newspapers and lefty blogs, compare the opinion piece in today’s Washington Post to yesterday’s piece in Vox making the case for packing the Supreme Court by adding a few progressive judges, an idea tried by Franklin Delano Roosevelt.


Now David Faris, author of “It’s Time to Fight Dirty: How Democrats Can Build a Lasting Majority in American Politics,” is arguing that court-packing is the only way to save democracy:

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

Should Democrats gain unified control of government in 2021, they ought to consider this more complete story of court-packing. Before contemplating such unprecedented action, Democrats should offer Republicans a truce in the decades-long judicial wars: the illegitimate Neil Gorsuch resigns, and both parties support a constitutional amendment eliminating lifetime tenure on the Supreme Court, capping service at 18 years.

That’s funny: Vox founder Ezra Klein also began only recently to float the idea that justices should be appointed for 18-year terms. Also funny: We don’t remember anyone talking about needed to “fix” the Supreme Court during the Obama years.

Funniest of all: the idea that President Trump might take their advice and pack the court with conservatives before midterms.



We see what you did there.




Nuking the filibuster worked so well — how could this possibly backfire?
