O’Donnell explained that “when I go to Washington, D.C., the litmus test by which I cast my vote for every piece of legislation that comes across my desk will be whether or not it is constitutional.” How weird is that, I thought. Isn’t it a court’s job to determine whether or not something is, in fact, constitutional? And isn’t that sort of provided for in, well, the Constitution?The reporter, Dahlia Lithwick, got her law degree at Stanford, and her clerk experience in the Ninth Federal Circuit. Obviously, no one ever taught her that all three branches of the federal government take an oath to uphold the US Constitution, and they all have that responsibility.
Phyllis Schlafly wrote a whole book to explain what Lithwick did not learn in law school. It is The Supremacists, and you can read a sample chapter for free.
