John Roberts Is Nuts if He Thinks Saving “Roe v. Wade” Is Good for SCOTUS’s Reputation

“In the decades-long slog to overturn Roe, the conservative legal establishment identified, promoted, and nominated highly qualified judges with the right pedigree, academic credentials, and temperament. The bet was that their judicial philosophy would predispose them (but not predestine them) to conservative outcomes. If this strategy fails (and at this point, anything short of overturning Roe might be interpreted that way), the next strategy will probably be based solely on guaranteeing outcomes instead of intellect. Be careful what you wish for. If you thought the right-wing populist backlash has sullied Congress, just wait until the Supreme Court has its own Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Lauren Boebert.” (04/28/22)
