You can’t blame the Court on this one. Blame badly written legislation. We are still a nation of laws. Passions, politics, and policy have no place at the Court—-those energies are admirable and should inform voters and legislatures. But courts are the dispassionate auditors of the process. For them, the law must be consistent with the Constitution, nothing more.
