Stuart Taylor ups the ante on the “nine-zip” meme with his headline:
Justices Reject Sotomayor Position 9-0 — But Bigger Battles Loom
To give you an idea of how crazy this “nine-zip” stuff is, George Will, of all people, describes the decision as depressingly narrow.
A few questions about Stuart Taylor:
(1) Why does the National Journal — a publication I have great respect for in general — publish his crap?
(2) Why is his blog called “The Ninth Justice”? Don’t we already have nine justices? Shouldn’t it be called “The Tenth Justice”?
