The Supreme Court said to day that it would consider overturning an absurd late 2012 ruling by eight Democratic judges on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals overturning Ward Connerly's 2006 initiative victory banning affirmative action in Michigan. The Democratic judges said that it was unfair for the thuggish plaintiffs, By Any Means Necessary, to have to do what Connerly did and get the majority of Michigan voters to back their view of affirmative action.
This was one of the more blatant of the countless post-Obama re-election expressions of sheer who? whom? thinking.
Scalia gives the impression that he thinks that the five Republican Supreme Court Justices (who aren't terribly young, by the way) are all that stand between the country permanently slipping from a world in which affirmative action can't be ended because its beneficiaries are too weak to one in which affirmative action can't be ended because its beneficiaries are too strong.
