Lawyers Kill Terri Schiavo

Why is it that the most authoritative voices on Constitutional meaning are lawyers? The very group least likely to know anything at all about the Constitution?

Looking around the blogosphere I am in awe at the utter ignorance lawyers have of the Federalist Papers and other historical documents written by those who had a hand in writing the Constitution.

Oh, and a close second place goes to political scientists.

I find it more than a tad bit convenient that lawyers and judges claim an absolute right in expounding what the law means.

Somewhere in Virginia, James Madison is rolling in his grave. He is soon to be joined by Terri Schiavo.
