Re: “Impartiality of Supreme Court smothered by politics” (TNT, 4-5).
Most of Maureen Dowd’s histrionic tirade against the Supreme Court deserves no comment. Indeed, it deserved no publication.
Dowd comes close to the truth on one point, however. The court’s decisions (and its powers, by the way) are shaped by a “political handbook” of sorts. We call it the Constitution of the United States of America.
