Neil Gorsuch Already Paying Dividends

Don’t believe me? Just read Slate’s reaction:

On Monday, Justice Neil Gorsuch revealed himself to be everything that liberals had most feared: pro-gun, pro–travel ban, anti-gay, anti–church/state separation. He is certainly more conservative than Justice Samuel Alito and possibly to the right of Justice Clarence Thomas. He is an uncompromising reactionary and an unmitigated disaster for the progressive constitutional project. And he will likely serve on the court for at least three more decades.

Although Gorsuch has barely been on the bench for two months, he has already had an opportunity to weigh in on some of the most pressing constitutional issues of our time. In each case, he has chosen the most conservative position.

It’s possible that Trump will pick one (maybe even two) more Supreme Court justices before he runs for reelection in 2020. Justice Anthony Kennedy is entertaining the idea of retiring, and although Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 84, I envision her hanging on until the bitter end.

Are you sick and tired of all this winning yet?
