Is the Supreme Court Too Smart for Our Own Good?

Interesting article in the New Republic by Dahlia Lithwick explaining that she believes the rightward shift of the high court is based in more than just ideology:

"But having covered the Court for 15 years, I’ve come to believe that what we’re seeing goes beyond ideology. Because ideology alone would not propel the justices to effect such massive shifts upon the constitutional landscape, inventing rights for corporations while gutting protections for women, minorities, and workers. No, the real problem, I think, is that the Court as a whole has gotten too smart for our own good."
