Take heed, fellow cynics

From Truthdig:

We can take away two lessons from the first high-profile oral argument of the Supreme Court’s new term, which began Monday. Lesson No. 1 is that the court is already a hard-right institution. Lesson No. 2 is that the re-election of President Barack Obama is more crucial than ever if the court’s movement to the right is to be slowed or possibly reversed…

    This is the most important issue in this election. The battle between the Keynesian Capitalist and the Hayekian Capitalist is fun to watch but not all that important. Although it would be better for all of us if the Keynesian Capitalist (Obama) wins. If Obama wins the plutocrats won’t get richer quite as quickly. But the issue of who is appointed to the Supreme Court is very important. If Romney wins expect several more hard core conservative types. If Obama wins we may see our first left-of-center Asian women on the court. Obama’s re-election is important.
