The Polarization of the Supreme Court

The Court itself is to blame for this. It should have declined to substitute its own political opinions for those of people elected to make policy. By ruling on abortion, they insured that all future confirmation hearings will be polarized and a game of cat and mouse, trying to catch a nominee revealing his/her true opinions on issues. They know very well that nothing they tell the Senate can be used against them once they're sworn in. Unless they start taking judicial restraint seriously, we're going to be trapped in this tawdry cycle forever.
