    :: Thursday, June 17, 2004 ::
    A leftist e-zine called BuzzFlash has interviewed Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation magazine, and caused an embarrassment to the American left -- or would have done, if the left were embarrassable.

    The interviewer said, and Ms. vanden Heuvel agreed, that
    If one were even to accept at face value a strict constructionist's viewpoint -- which Scalia doesn't in reality accept because he's actually an interventionist judge and an activist judge in defiance of the Constitution -- but in any case, if one were to accept what he claims as strict constructionism, we would still have slavery in this country and women wouldn't have the right to vote.

    KvH: I think that's absolutely right....
    These are the intellectual leaders American leftwing journalism -- and they think strict construction/original intent/original meaning jurisprudence means refusing to apply the 13th and 19th Amendments?

    Don't let your guard down, American conservatives -- but don't panic either. The other side's heavyweights are lightweights.
