Supremely Divided

Supremely Divided

This week, John Roberts' (and President Bush's) Supreme Court handed down several landmark 5-4 decisions. Altogether, the conservative majority succeeded in abridging free speech, loosening campaign finance restrictions, ending racial integration programs in schools and pulling the rug out from under retail price floors. Roberts had said when he became a justice that he looked forward to less contentious case conclusions -- but he appears to be in the minority on that one. These decisions didn't come as much of a surprise, of course; the justices made their decisions along well-established ideological lines. The judicial branch is delivering for the conservative agenda right when an embattled Bush and his friends need their support the most.
