They’re really begging the body politic to fix the problem. Once they dug in on letting Kagan participate, they found themselves in a credibility hole.

Many people clam that the Constitution is what the USSC says it is, if that is so then there are not three co-equal branches but the Executive and Legislature (being bound by the Constitution) are subordinate.
Many people claim that there is no way to be rid of a corrupt Supreme Court, but the Legislature CAN impeach them; but even if there was no such recourse (as seems the practical the case, given the Congress’s behavior) there is still the fundamental right of the people to “vote from the rooftops” — the Declaration of Independence said it thusly: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. [...] But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
