One last thing about the court...

For those who say that the court is now tilted to the right, the following needs to be said in order for you to return from the bizarre universe you live in.

The "conservatives" on the court now include:

Scalia, Roberts, Allito and Thomas. That's 4, in case you can't count. They are actually constructionists, to be accurate.

The "liberals" are these justices:

Ginsburg, Breyer, Stevens, and Souter. 4 more, if you are counting. These justices usually vote together, are not big fans of Federalism or states rights and generally subscribe to the "living document" view of the constitution.

So where is number 9? Kennedy. He is a wild card, and always has been. So the count is now 4 to 4 to 1. That is called a "tie" on this planet. Stop delluding yourselves into thinking that it is now in some way uneven in conservatives favor. It's just not true. Stop saying it. Stop stop stop.
