Judge Gorsuch's Originalism Contrasts With Mentor's Pragmatism

I'm annoyed that Senator Gillibrand's statement against Judge Gorsuch did not mention Garland, but opposition on the merits is fine. A NPR piece on his originalist views shows this, with a reminder "text" is not the same thing "artificial selective citation of what it meant back in the day." Pragmatism like anything else can be selective as seen by White who in various ways applied it well but was one note on abortion. But still is more credible.

And Also: His views on Chevron leave something to be desired long term.
