Bush v. Gore Redux

Last week’s oral argument in the Indiana voter ID case clearly demonstrated the effect of President Bush’s appointment of Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito to the Supreme Court. Both indicated strong support for Indiana’s law and – unlike Justice Stevens – closed their eyes to the real-world implications of the law for thousand of voters. Coverage of the argument reminds us that Roberts and Alito are implementing a political vision that limits not only access to the courts, but access to the ballot box.
