A living, breathing, twisting, turning, jumping up and down constituition

Justice Scalia: “The Court Has Liberated Itself From The Constitution”
And, as Scalia points out, BOTH SIDES are equally in favor of “interpretation” of the Constitution, rather than abiding by what it actually says. He asks: “If you think that the Constitution is meant to reflect ‘the evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society.’ — then why in the world would you have it interpreted by nine lawyers? What do I know about the evolving standards of decency of American society? I’m afraid to ask.”

Why is it than whenever Scalia opens his mouth I know that a great quote will come out.
