Conservative Comedy

Kevin Drum writes of Conservative Legal Thought:
[David Bernstein] talks about whether or not genuine originalists should overturn New Deal opinions from the 40s, which strikes me as sort of like arguing over whether or not Superman could kick Green Lantern's butt: harmless, to be sure, but hardly part of the real world. If Federalist Society members are convinced that even Antonin Scalia is too liberal for their taste, and what's really needed is someone who will vote to repeal the Social Security Act, they're just fantasizing, not discussing real-life issues. What's the point?
True, except that the consequences would be dire if they achieved some sort of success.

Besides, Hal Jordan totally kicked Superman's ass. This new Kyle character? I think not. "Oooo, I'm a graphic designer! I can imagine all sorts of things." Whatever.

Maybe the Constitution is in Exile in some 10 year-old's underwear.

"Superman" by R.E.M. from the album Lifes Rich Pageant (1986, 2:54).
