Interpretations du jour

Hot Air: "Pew: Majority Now Says SCOTUS Should Base Rulings On What Constitution Means “In Current Times,” Not Originally."

Sigh.  I just finished reading "Scalia Speaks" which is a collection of speeches by former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.  To say the man was obsessed with originalism would not be a stretch: it appears in almost every commencement address and speech he gave.  The general idea is that once you stray from the original text of the Constitution and start guessing intent then anything goes.
