The author thinks this means the Republican justices are less legitimate. What is actually means is that Republican Senators are more bipartisan. Furthermore, it demonstrates that the author doesn't understand that the role of the court is primarily to decide legal issues, and secondarily to serve as a dispassionate check on majority rule rather than an enforcement tool of the majority.
Unfortunately the court has also forgotten this, though there are hopes that may improve with Trump's second Justice.
