DC's Law of Supreme Court Intertia

As I was telling my buddy and convinced Miers believer Don Surber, you gotta understand the law of Supreme Court Intertia. It goes like this:
Justices at rest, whether they be liberal or conservative, tend to stay at rest. Justices in motion ... tend to drift left.
Hence, without evidence of "mooring" such as to define a justice's jurisprudential location, we must always assume that justices will drift. And when the inevitable storm surge of pressure comes, the unmoored will surely drift. And they always drift left.
