Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Be Afraid...

I know some people are reticent about a Clinton Restoration.  I have my own reticence.

But if you read Samuel Alito's remarks, you can't help but shudder.  If Anthony Kennedy is replaced by a Scalito/Clarence Thomas clone, we could easily see a Court that embraces things as self-evidently batshit crazy as, well, Alito's own logic in King v Burwell.
