Probably the most infuriating, if entirely predictable, outcome of the Supreme Court’s fusillade of 5-4′s this week was the MSM’s dewy-eyed credulity that accompanied it.  Now, I’m not implying that say, Adam Liptak of the NYT is a clueless ninth grader, but his reporting would have been considerably more respectable if he were.  Pretending to parse the hastily concocted legal reasoning du jour behind decisions that were already made twenty years ago by the Court’s right wing not only makes boring reading, but it insults the intelligence of anyone capable of tying one’s own shoes.
