    Make no mistake, I feel that Biden is a joke. How or why he is sitting where he is sitting just boggles my mind. But, Palin is even a bigger joke, if that is at all possible. How anyone could ever take either of them seriously is beyond me.

    The only thing scarier than Biden sitting behind the red phone is Palin not picking it up because her nails haven't dried.

    How do we get such idiots in the political arena? I could see it if it were local. School board, alderman, dog-catcher. But Washington? It's just simply amazing.

    Corporations aren't people. People have to pay taxes.

    I agree. THAT was my exact point - the fallacy and the hypocrisy from the so-called "strict" constructionists. I'm glad to see that you agree.

    Don't they usually appoint established judges to the High Court?

    Let's nip this foolishness in the bud: White House: Obama not picking Hillary Clinton for court | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    The White House quickly ended speculation today about another potential nominee: Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Her named had been floated as a possibility by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, but White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Obama “is going to keep her as his secretary of state.”

    So they're using the "living document" method. What's the issue, that they are reaching conclusions with which you don't agree? This is the very reason we should be sticking to the letter of the document to begin with!

    Usually...but not always. And there is no requirement.

    The point is: "Strict" Constructionists love to claim that they stick to the letter of the document, however, in decision after decision, they only do so when it is convenient to their agenda. If a decision doesn't fit their agenda, they have no problem interpreting the Constitutition or overturning precedent.

    They cling to the label, but are dishonest in their application.

    overturning precedent does not have anything to do with being a strict constructionist. Poorly reasoned precedent that conflicts with original intent should be overturned.
