Here’s this guy.
- The Atlantic
- 60 Minutes
- CBS Radio News
- “has won a Murrow Award as one of the nation’s leading legal analysts and commentators.”
Leading? Here’s what Andrew wrote:
“Just 10 days ago, I wrote about SJR 45, a Tea Party-infused measure (part interposition, part nullification, part secessionism) that would purport to give Missouri the power to disregard federal law — and federal-court rulings interpreting and enforcing that law. SJR 45 evidently hasn’t yet made it out of the state senate yet, and the entire legislature would have to approve the proposed constitutional amendment before Missourians could vote on it. But even if all of that were to happen the law would have zero chance — none — of passing constitutional muster upon judicial review. Like people, states don’t get to pick and choose which federal laws they want to obey.”
I was really hoping that at this point in the article, this leading analyst would offer an explanation of why the only ‘constitutional’ behavior a state can assume is to cower in fear under the spectre of an out-of-control Federal government. He did not.Details
