The right is starting to sound like the left — shrill and reactionary. Take a tip from the master, George Bush — ignore them, it really tees them off. The right is also being coopted by the left, as is revealed in the Miers situation, into valuing words more than deeds — that's the root of their shallowness.
The Constitution does not require a brilliant mind to understand it. That's the EU Constitution you're thinking of.
Methinks our present muddle is caused by the strain of so many brilliant mindegos trying to maintain their reputations. We are desperately in need of a return to the value of judicial parsimony (I'm sure there's a legal term for that). Harriet Miers and John Roberts are our saviors. Roberts to smooth the personal intellectual rivalries that compel multiple opinions and Miers to continually remind them of the real life practical impact of the law.
