Henry Olsen: Ignore the Progressives’ Howling About the Supreme Court’s Legitimacy

From a Washington Post column by Henry Olsen headlined “Ignore the progressives’ howling about the Supreme Court’s ‘legitimacy'”:

Progressives are howling that the Supreme Court’s conservative turn this term heralds a decline in the court’s “legitimacy.” As if.

Nothing about the court’s legitimacy has changed. The only thing that has changed is its judicial philosophy, and if progressives don’t like it, they must do what others aggrieved at the court have done throughout our history: mobilize to turn the tide in their favor.
