#1 ....goes to the heart of Roosevelt's New Deal, and the American Nanny State that was erected upon it.

Amen and amen!

#2 ...the court currently has, among its nine members, perhaps six who are genuinely learned in the law, and therefore capable of thinking outside received media and academic categories.

I wonder who these members are in the author's mind? Most likely Kagan and Sotomayor. Who's the third?

#3 Kagan's a lefty shill. I heard some excerpts from her irt the on going Obamacare debate - I can't believe she has a law degree and is on SCOTUS. She clearly does not understand the Constitution or that you cannot simply make it say what you want it to in order to meet current political or economic exigencies.

#4 I'm not sure who the third one would be either. Hm!

I don't think Kagan is a lefty shill. She's more of a useful idiot than a hardcore ideologue, and she's way too intimidated by the power of her position to do anything crazy with it. She sounds dumb about the Constitution because she's used to be a litigator, whose job is not to be *know* but to *argue.* To take every position, however asinine, futile, or contradictory, leaving it to the wisdom of the impartial judge to decide who's slightly less whacked in the head. She's used to being "down here," not "up there."
