Several quotes to pass along--food for thought

In this morning's reading I came across several important quotes, apropos the forthcoming debate over judges. I only wish I had the facility to express such important things in such a wise yet succinct ways:

Do you believe it is possible for something to be constitutional, but wrong? Right but unconstitutional? This is what fundamentally separates the left and the right on judges. Either the constitution means something, or it doesn't. In a nation of laws, reasons--and rules--matter.

and:

If the Supreme Court is there to decide what's right or wrong rather than what's constitutional or unconstitutional, then we don't need lawyers on the bench at all. Surely if the questions before the court concern what's good and what's bad, there are people--priests, rabbis, truck drivers--more qualified to decide such things than a bunch of lawyers.

Think about it. How can you disagree?
