Supremes to Hear Ariz. Immigration Appeal


The Council of Guardians Supreme Court has announced it will hear the case over Arizona immigration law, which Gov. Jan Brewer appealed following a lower court’s ruling against the state. Counterintuitively, I think the White House privately wants to lose the case — that way, they get an irritant off the table that can motivate Obama’s opponents, while also being able to show their leftist allies how important it is to get out the vote, however disappointed they might be in The One’s performance, because he’ll appoint justices that won’t rule like this. As for how the Court is likely to rule, it all depends on which side of the bed Kennedy gets up on that morning — law having been replaced by “law” in modern America, i.e., the whim of a handful of lawyers.
