If they don't fear the electorate, who is left TO fear?
I diagree. Academics try this line too, "you see, our lack of standards, accountability, and oversight is actually a good thing, because it means that we're free to be totally objective and we're totally responsible not to just make up shit and engage in tween girl drama." When, as we can see with academics, the participants are human and still subject to all human failures, like bias, social manipulation, and so on and so forth.

"If men were angels, we would have no need of laws." And if judges were Vulcans, we would only need one.

If the court was better checked and balanced than it is now, I'd agree, but as it is, the SCOTUS's ability to essentially function as an unelected super-legislature means they should no longer be unelected. Ultra vires, bitches.
This is going to sound crazy, but the legislature could stop abdicating their responsibilities to the executive and judical branches. You're worried about the SCOTUS being unelected lawmakers when the FCC, EPA, and ATF have even less accountability? We are 4 or 5 contradictory 'is shouldering a pistol brace a felony?' memos deep from the ATF.

It really is fascinating how much Congress has willingly given up their power post-WWII. At least the Romans had the excuse of successive strongmen taking over the city and executing any senator who wasn't a brainless sheep, our politicians are just naturally venal, apparently.
 
The whole "Ginsburg is actually dead and people are trying to fool us into thinking she's alive" joke stopped being funny months ago. Seriously, let it go because it's just cringy at this point. There's nothing worse than taking a joke that wasn't even that funny in the first place and driving it into the ground.
Actually, there is something worse. Much worse.

Going to a place that is guaranteed to have pretty much just that, knowing that's exactly what's in it, and then whining that people are doing what they obviously were going to do in the RGB death anticipation thread.

A supreme court justice who has been out of the public eye since breaking some ribs is very much conducive to "She dead" jokes. If you can't take seeing any more of those jokes, I strongly suggest you read some other, non RBG death related thread.

The actual truth, obviously, is that in repairing her skeleton they had to disable parts of her human appearing bodysuit, and until they can get the medical equipment needed to keep a dying lizard person alive hidden in her human suit, we aren't going to see her.

Doesn't matter if she kicks off if Trump keeps winning judges to the 9th. Imagine a world where every decision by that court isn't overturned by the USSC.
Dems would lose a significant amount of power, even if it's just perceived power, because they often rely on the 9th to basically delay anything a Republican President or Senate gets through until they can rally the faithful and try to come up with a new opposition or delaying tactic, but even then just the optics they've been able to use of having the press blitz "REPUBLICAN AGENDA STOPPED COLD BY COURT" in reaction have always been useful.

I've little doubt they'll still find loyal pet judges to fling stuff around, but it will be and look weaker. They might eventually start having to, gasp, acknowledge that Republican politicians are allowed to legally do the stuff Democrat politicians do...

... pft, naaaah.
