Take this Court and stuff it

There's plenty of talk these days about enlarging the U.S. Supreme Court to get even with the Repblicans for the outrageous b.s. they pulled with Merrick Garland and that awful Amy Coney Barrett. The Prez has assenbled a commission to study the idea. But hey, it will never get past Emperor Manchin, and so the White House can just slow-walk it until it dies.

While we're on the subject, though, here's a good re-telling of the history of "packing" the Court, all the way back to the nation's beginning. Most people know about Franklin Roosevelt's attempt to get his way by appointing more justices, but fewer know that in ye olde times the Court's size was changed more than once. And there was always plenty of politics involved.
