Ah, The Virginia 11th Can Be So Proud – Congressman Gerry Connolly is an Idiot
Congressman Connolly gave an interview with Politico. The video is titled SCOTUS Most Partisan since 1930’s. Really?
Lets take a look at the decisions that they released yesterday.
Williams V. Illinois
Majority: Alito, Roberts, Kennedy, and Breyer
Dissenting: Thomas, Kagan, Scalia, Ginsberg (Sotomayor did not vote, therefore it concludes with the lower courts ruling)
Christopher V. SmithKline Beecham
Majority: Alito, Roberts, Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas
Dissenting: Kagan, Ginsberg, Sotomayor, Breyer
Salazar V. Navajo
Majority: Sotomayor, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, Kagan
Dissenting: Roberts, Ginsburg, Breyer, Alito
Pattawatomi Indians V. Patchak
Majority: Alito, Roberts, Kennedy, Scalia, Thomas, Kagan, Ginsberg, Breyer
Several opinions this year have been 9-0. Including the over-reach by the EPA, and a case involving religion.
By the looks of these cases it is obvious that they are really partisan, isn’t it? After all Alito and Ginsburg have so much in common.
If you don’t want to put yourself through the horror of listening to his entire interview, just go here to see what else he said about judicial review. You’ll love it.
