Roberts, Alito- "What Fourth Amendment?"

Maybe Tom Delay was right. Maybe we do have to beware activist judges. When the Supreme Court is willing to abandon 90 year old case law and admit, in Mark Moller's words,
...is “let’s pretend originalism” — a Potemkin fidelity to the old ways,
robbed of any force by a deceptive, lawyerly slight of hand.
what is left to be taken away?

Update: Over at The Observer anonymous asked what our municipal judge would have to say about this decision. As so often happens Dick was on the request like a duck on a junebug. Read what Judge Tom has to say about the 4th Amendment and the Roberts Court.
