Hilarious - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics

FDR biographer Jean Edward Smith takes to the op-ed page of the New York Times to call for a court-packing scheme to undermine the Roberts Court. Seriously:

Still, there is nothing sacrosanct about having nine justices on the Supreme Court. Roosevelt’s 1937 chicanery has given court-packing a bad name, but it is a hallowed American political tradition participated in by Republicans and Democrats alike.

If the current five-man majority persists in thumbing its nose at popular values, the election of a Democratic president and Congress could provide a corrective.

No word on what “popular values” the court is supposed to be subverting, but I have a feeling that Smith’s concept of what’s “popular” is informed less by actual public opinion than by the consensus in the faculty lounge.
