Amendment « Politics As Usual »

I should never say I don't have an opinion.

For instance, within minutes I stumbled across this point, made by Mickey Kaus:

In the post-Warren era, judges don't just have tenure, they have almost uncheckable anti-democratic power. The constitution has been durably politicized in a way the Framers didn't anticipate. Practically every legislative issue can be--and is--phrased in constitutional terms (e.g., as a case of "rights").

I think that is essentially correct, and it worries me. It's why the actions of the judicial branch worried me far more than those of the legislative branch in the Terry Schiavo issue.
