Chief Justice John Roberts whines about "sociological goobledygook"

Quote
The Supreme Court is currently considering a landmark case challenging partisan gerrymandering, specifically Wisconsin Republicans' efforts to draw state assembly districts so as to firmly entrench their majority. At the heart of the case is a concept called the "efficiency gap," a simple number that political scientist Eric McGhee and law professor Nicholas Stephanopoulos have devised to measure how much a given district map favors one party over the other. If the number gets too high, it's an indication that one party has rigged the game to ensure they keep getting reelected.

Sound simple enough? Well, not to Chief Justice John Roberts, who dismissed the concept as "sociological gobbledygook" in oral arguments for the case.

Roberts likes baseball analogies so maybe put it in terms of on base plus slugging percentage.

"We are certain that the social scientists and legal scholars at your alma mater would be disappointed to learn that you attributed your ignorance and churlishness to your Harvard education. But no one else is."
