From 33:50 to 39:10 in this podcast is a portion of the interview with Richard Posner, a now retired judge for the United States Court of Appeals on the Seventh Circuit.
“…And by the way, do you think these Supreme Court Justices are great big brains? These stars who were selected because they were the best lawyers in the United States and their decisions are usually great. You think all that? I don’t. I don’t have a high respect for the Supreme Court at all. You look at their decisions. You look at them. How they’re appointed. Who appoints them. So why do you think the Supreme Court is such a great balance to the President in a war?”
