"Right-wing judicial activism has been ascendant in recent years. Five years ago, in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court, rewrote decades of Second Amendment jurisprudence to thwart local legislators who passed gun control laws. Three years ago, in Citizens United, a majority of the Justices overturned decades of precedent to deregulate modern campaign financing. But even these decisions, and others like them, pale beside last week's extravagant act of judicial hubris by the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. There, in Canning v. National Labor Relations Board, three federal judges revealed themselves as Republican National Committeemen in robes."
