Some conservative legal thinkers like Justice Scalia and Justice Thomas think that the Constitution means what it originally meant. That means we should understand the document by going into a kind of time machine and capturing the public understanding of the public that ratified the document a century or more than a century ago.
Well, that would be more than a couple of centuries ago, actually. You know, some conservative thinkers make the argument that Cass Sunstein is actually a pretty good guy in that role. Curious to know what they think of this quote.
And it goes to show that not a day goes by that this administration does not provide a massive reason why it must be voted out of office in two years.
