The elite legal class sure struggles to admit the actual reality of modern legal politics.
Yeah, who would want to accurately describe the relationship between the Supreme Court and the Republican Party? Why bother with the facts of Shelby County or Citizens United or, well, why even list the cases? This is blindingly obvious to everyone who does not have a vested interest in maintaining the fiction that the Court is somehow Above Politics. Republicans have made this relationship their own position. Many Democrats have finally realized this. But your well-compensated legal commenters who have lots of TV appearances? No way.
