In case you're wondering who the next Goldstein is, I just saw the latest New York Times bestseller list. (It'll be posted on the Times site on Sunday.) All the way up at #4, in its first week on the list, is this book:

MEN IN BLACK, by Mark R. Levin (Regnery, $27.95)
A lawyer and conservative commentator enumerates ways in which "the Supreme Court is destroying America."

Amazon page here. (It's #3 at Amazon.)

From the Inside Flap
The Supreme Court Endorses Terrorists' Rights, Flag Burning, and Importing Foreign Law.

Is that in the Constitution?

You're right: It's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power. There's a word for this: tyranny....

I love it that these people actually think the right to political speech (e.g., flag-burning) isn't in the Constitution.

Levin is the president of the Landmark Legal Foundation, of Paula Jones fame.
