    Don’t bet against the political muscle of the California Teachers’ unions. California judges have to run for election.

      Agree. They’ll get the Constitution changed. Never thought i’d be grateful for a “disparate impact” decision. Those things are an abomination.

      • Fat_Man

        They will get the Constitution changed only if they cannot intimidate the appellate judges into reversing the lower court.

        • Corlyss

          I’m betting the appellate court reverses. There’s too much at stake for elected judges. The only thing worse than elected judges is appointed judges. The only thing worse than appointed judges is elected judges. I think there are no more models by which to choose judges. Pity that.

        They won’t get the Constitution changed. There are only two ways to do that, one of which is to persuade a super-majority of the States to demand it, the other to open Pandora’s Box via a Constitutional Convention.

        • Corlyss

          The constitution in issue is the Ca. constitution, not the Big Kahuna.

          • Andrew Allison

            Of course, but when(as it must) it goes to the Supremes, is the Big Kahuna that counts.

          • Corlyss

            Disagree. There’s the issue of plaintiffs not appealing beyond the state because they don’t want to hear the answer and they have maximum control over the amending of the Ca. constitution.

    • Andrew Allison

      But the Supremes don’t.

    The parasites are on the run
