al franken on the supreme court

As someone who would have been counted as 3/5 of a human being at the time, I've never really been a fan of the idea that the U.S. Constitution should be interpreted according to the original intent of the Founding Fathers. But in a recent speech, Senator Al Franken does an excellent job of debunking conservative talking points on Originalism (which is actually a novel perspective in American jurisprudence) and so-called activist judges.
