2011 and the Supreme Court

This week I will be taking a look at what will be happening to Washington in 2011. I will be looking at the House, the Senate, the White House, the Supreme Court, and Federal agencies. Today I will look at the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court claims to be impartial, but let’s face it:  There are 5 Republicans and 4 Democrats on the court.  Many of the recent rulings have gone 5-4 with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas voting Republican.  Justices Steven Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor voting with the Democrats.  There are instances when there is a bipartisan agreement, but this is limited to 9-0 decisions not to hear cases.

It’s a bit more difficult to guess what the Supreme Court will decide because many of the cases haven’t been filed yet.  The Supreme Court is a little like Major League Baseball in one matter:  The cases they hear are like the regular season and post season in baseball.  The week when they announce their decisions on the cases they heard is similar to when baseball announces their awards for MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, and Manager of the Year.  Another similarity is both have nine uniformed people in their lineups.

One upcoming case is “Montana v. Wyoming“.  while this is going to be settled in a judicial court, I would have settled it on a basketball court between the University of Montana and the University of Wyoming.  These games could generate revenue for the schools and could cut tuition costs.

While it is hard to figure out how the Supreme Court will rule on cases they haven’t heard yet, there is a good chance it will be 5-4.

    • Games would be better with more on the line than a win or a loss.
