In the meantime, the court is supposed to be separate from the executive and legislative branches and not politicized.

The partisans better be careful because such behavior does come back to haunt. Even these appointments can become "undone".
Naw. The blow to our Republic occured with the passage of the 17th Amendment (The country lost a branch of govt) in 1913 and the Apportionment Act of 1929.

OR perhaps the passage of the ACA without knowing what was in the bill. Ya known that whole "..pass it so we can see what's in it.."
