Originalists in the hot seat

It's fun to watch judicial conservatives squirm when asked about Brown v. Board of Education. Apparently, original intent controls, except when it doesn't. In other words, no one actually believes their dogma, including them.

Our activists should debate more in this fashion, taking our enemies' stated principles to their logical conclusion, probing them until they break. Doing so would surely change more minds than the appeals to one's own emotions that we so often see.
