    very popular - that doesn't mean it's constitutional.

    Judicial activism is when they overturn precedent, and start telling Congress how to write laws, like they did with with VRA opinion.

    They didn't have a problem, necessarily, with the VRA itself but the "formula" they supposedly use to determine the worst offenders.  They didn't even specify what about the "formula" was unconstitutional - just that it wasn't done right.

    DOMA is blatantly unconstitutional on its face; just because (what was once) a majority decides that a group of people deserve less rights than others, doesn't make it constitutional, Christie.

    These people make my brain hurt.
