Tantrum-Throwing Democrats Say Supreme Court is Now “Illegitimate”

Democrats have been saying for two years that President Trump is an “illegitimate” president for one crazy reason or another, and now they’re ready to throw that label at the nation’s high court. Angry over their failed attempt to railroad Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats and other left-wing agitators are telling anyone who will listen that the Supreme Court’s legitimacy is now in question.

“Confirming Brett Kavanaugh in the face of credible allegations of sexual assault that were not thoroughly investigated, and his belligerent, partisan performance in last Thursday’s hearing undermines the legitimacy of the Supreme Court,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the woman largely responsible for the circus that these hearings turned into.

“The damage done today will be enduring — to the United States Supreme Court and to our country,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

Ahead of the vote, NY Times columnist Paul Krugman said: “Kavanaugh may yet be confirmed, but this will make the court fundamentally illegitimate.”

At Slate, Mark Joseph Stern wrote: “As soon as Kavanaugh takes the oath, he will plunge the Supreme Court into a legitimacy crisis that could weaken its power over the long term. This crisis will become particularly acute if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency but find their reforms stymied by a reactionary judiciary.”

You have to really read that twice to appreciate its full idiocy. The Supreme Court’s legitimacy, Stern seems to argue, is based on how much of the Democrat agenda it affirms. How illuminating!

David Faris at BuzzFeed suddenly thinks it’s time for Republicans and Democrats to “agree on a broad compromise – a constitutional amendment that eliminates lifetime tenure for the Supreme Court, with service capped at 18 years.”*

*Subject to abolishment the second a Democrat president succeeds in putting a liberal majority on the bench, we’re sure.

Much of this handwringing is based on a faulty premise: That Americans NOW view the Supreme Court as a larger-than-life, apolitical institution that guides and interprets our Constitution with the wisdom lacking in the other two branches of government. That just isn’t the case, and it hasn’t been for a very long time. You’d have to be very naïve to look at all of those 5-4 decisions throughout the last five or ten years and think, “Wow, such a coincidence that it always seems to fall along party lines…” Are we really that dumb, as a nation? No.

What these liberals really mean is that THEY will now view the Supreme Court as illegitimate because THEY no longer have an ideological advantage. Much as they view the Electoral College as illegitimate because THEY keep getting the short end of the stick. This is just more partisan whining, dressed up to look like sober political analysis.
