AG Baker is overlooking one thing - the present makeup of the U.S. Supremes. Precedent does not matter. Legal principles do not matter. Accurate Constitutional analysis does not matter.

What matters is whether or not a particular case involves an issue strongly urged by conservatives on a national basis. If it does, the decision will go in favor of the conservative side. 5 to 4.

So - AG Baker can feel free to bring a meritless claim. Provided it makes it all the way to the U.S. Supremes, he probably will have nothing to fear. Any problems with that? Get in touch with the attorneys who argued in favor of lifting campaign ad spending limits.

Bush didn't pack that court for nothing.

President Obama appointed Jusice Sotomayor (a moderate liberal) to fill the seat vacated by Justice Souter (a conservative turned liberal). Hence, Preisdent Obama's apppointment changed nothing, because he was basically replacing a liberal with a liberal.

Bush, on the other hand, appointed first Justice Alito (probably the most conservative of them all) and then Chief Justice Roberts (a conservative). Alito replaced Sandra Day O'Connor - an extreme conservative replacing a strong liberal. Roberts replaced Chief Justice Rehnquist - another conservative replacing a liberal.

When you're dealing with 9 justices, a swing of one justice can be sufficient to alter the balance of the court. That is precisely what happened here.
