The whole "Everyone in a position of power is post-mandatory retirement age in any other scenario" house of cards can't hold period. SCOTUS is just the most obvious example of it.

Even beyond that there's the aspect of I don't like having major, far reaching decisions made by people who know damn well they aren't going to have to live to deal with the consequences. You can't tell me that doesn't make a difference.
