I am hopeful that with Judge Alito's soon-to-be confirmation, the Supreme Court will release some (all?) of the powers it's arrogated to itself over the past 20 years. I like how Professor Bainbridge sums the problem up in this post (it's a short post & worth reading).
Once again, nine old men and women in robes have elevated themselves into a super-legislature in which they have exercised privileges they deny to our elected representatives. So much for having a democracy. Indeed, at this rate, so much for having a republic.
