Douthat’s good ideas on SCOTUS

Russ Douthat, not afraid to note that the GOP in Congress could have restricted affirmative action laws, rather than turning to the Supreme Court for relief, has two good suggestions, at least on paper.

The first is term limits, batted around by many, of many political persuasions, before.

The second is a 6-3 supermajority to overturn state or federal laws. Interesting.

Dunno whether traditional special interests of the left or right would howl more on that one.
