    I have no desire to cut him any slack. He did his worst to impose these amendments on the nation by judicial fiat, while on the Court, and came terrifyingly close to success. Now he’s written a book, nominally aimed at Congress, but, realistically, the real target is the Court, in the hope that some day soon there will be five votes to re-write the Constitution more to his liking.

    It’s a roadmap for gutting the Bill of Rights, and I don’t have to cut anybody slack who writes one of those.

    My guess is it’s ok as a book on his experiences and thoughts but trying to sell his ideas and principles on the rest doesn’t seem right.
