There are two things which have shaped my opinion about the supreme court: the first was the bush v gore case (as you've already mentioned). The nauseating aspect of which was not (only) the decision itself but the fact that it was such an important case which was decided precisely along political lines. The second is that may sister (who just finished law school) went to observe the supreme court in session and watched as justice Thomas slept(!) though arguments. I frankly have little respect for the instution. An excellent idea (to have an body insulated from politics deciding law)- in practice a farce.
