Good episode? Give it some love!
Nick and Joe discuss the Supreme Court’s latest round of decisions including a big opinion striking down Arizona’s voter ID provisions, but it may not be as positive a development as it sounds. They also talk about the announcement that the U.S. will interject itself into the Syrian conflict.

A few items that we discussed during this episode:
The potentially pyrrhic nature of Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona is outlined by SCOTUSblog’s Lyle Denniston, Marty Lederman of Georgetown Law, and Rick Hasen of UC-Irvine Law.
SCOTUSblog’s recap of Alleyne v. United States can be found here.  Scott Lemieux heralds the decision while knocking around Justice Scalia.
Here’s the Pew poll showing that the public REALLY doesn’t like the idea of U.S. action in Syria.
And a hearty congratulations to Justin Wolfers, the official economist of the Recess Appointment podcast, who became a U.S. citizen on Monday.
