You are living in the land of the tooth fairy, Hugh. First, you try to justify Robert's decision to totally trash the Constitution with this decision. Next, you try to convince us this brilliant move will innoculate futre conservatives judges from being labeled partisans. You may be a smart guy, but not here. Statists and their allies in the media will NEVER stop howling partisanship whenever a SCOTUS decision goes their way. It's their nature, and a leopard can't change its stripes. Wake up, Hugh--this ruling is a disaster for the Constitution.

Pretty sure leopards don't have stripes, R. Tigers, zebra, and any number of antelope, on the other hand...

My goof--obviously leapards have spots, not stripes. Guess I was so mesmerized by Hugh's reasoning I tried a little of it myself!

Over at I have ventured the opinion that perhaps --just perhaps-- originalists will eventually recognize Chief Justice Robert's decision and opinion yesterday as a bit of judicial genius that will be his Marbury v. Madison --the case that at first glance seemed a win for an executive whom the then Chief Justice opposed but which was in reality a huge win for the Court and the original design of the Constitution.

We won't have even a preliminary assessment for at least four months, and even if Mitt Romney wins the presidency, the success of this...
