Deborah . You are reading me exactly right. ACS has done tremendous work on this front, and I am not slagging legal academics here at all. But between John Roberts’ whole “umpire” thing and Scalia’s little red bat-phone to the Framers, it seems to me progressives are being badly out-sold. At the risk of yet another wretched baseball metaphor, my problem here is with the pitcher, not the pitch.
