Thom Hartmann: An Impartial Judiciary is now just a Myth...

Thom plus logo
According to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation - 75% of Americans believe the Supreme Court is driven by ideological views rather than objective legal analysis. Of course - the justices themselves have done one heck of a job advancing this notion. Scalia, Alito, and Thomas have attended and spoken at right-wing gatherings - gone hunting with prominent Republicans like Dick Cheney - accepted gifts from right-wing organizations - and been educated through right-wing legal think tanks like the Federalist Society. And in the process - have been one of the friendliest courts to corporate interests in recent history.
The Supreme Court has dropped the ball when it comes to objectively analyzing the rule of law in America - and it's time Congress fulfill it's Constitutional obligation and hold these corrupt justices accountable.
(Do you think Congress will? Tell us here.)
