Politics: "Drat that Constitution! Foiled again!"

Via SayUncle, we get a juicy Feinstein quote generated by the Alito brouhaha:

Feinstein said she is concerned that that opinion “demonstrates a willingness to strike down laws with which you personally may disagree by employing a narrow reading of Congress’ constitutional authority to enact legislation.”

Narrow readings of Congressional authority have got to be chafing, especially when you've sleazed your way to the top of the heap by promising to vote for every one of your constituents to get a gold house and a rocket car.

Through the rose-colored San Francisco shades of Sen. Feinstein, the remainder of the country narrows into socialist city states on either coast separated by a handful of quite-violent, right-wing, gun-toting criminals and livestock herders.
