    that only a lawyer could believe it.

    I can't believe that now Dems are sounding like Teabaggers by fine parsing of the Constitution out of all context.

    Balkin is full of shit -- he's a Constitutional Scholar, after all. His entire career is in making up just-so stories to make the documents fit the reality.

    People really, really need to stop treating lawyers as if they were scientists or researchers of some kind. They make shit up -- that's important at the level of the local court case, but deeply corrupting as political principle.
