Strange times indeed - 3 for 3 on 'liberal' issues having 'conservative' crossover for decisions.
 

Trump's hubris for acting like the Judiciary and Congress are there to 'serve' him has brought out the territorial power egos from both branches. Roberts is letting him know he doesn't 'own' them. McConnell is chafing under Trump's self inflicted political damage and increasingly endangering the lives on Capitol Hill with reckless rallies. The last 48 hours have seen both McConnell (who has stayed quiet on the issue) and Pence suddenly advocating the wearing of masks.

This 5-4 decision falls even further into the thin-reed category given the circumstances. In 2016, the Supreme Court struck down a very similar Texas law by a 5-4 vote. Roberts was in the minority in that case. His reasoning for switching in this case is solely based on adherence to stare decisis (precedent). He apparently still  believes the 2016 case was wrongly decided.
 
So in thinking about all the recent Roberts decisions, I can't help but wonder (especially after today's ruling)....

A) He knows Trump should have been booted in January/February, and

B) He is going to do his best to leave things as they are until we have another election

He definitely seems to be focusing on the long game, and he can't really like what's going on in DC.  Sure, he's supposed to be apolitical....but his life is about the determination of right and wrong.

Hmm, a Dick Cheney-inspired gun metaphor. There's a Conservative-majority court and he still desperately clings to the fear-mongering tactic that the 2nd Amendment will be revoked.
