1. Keep in mind that with originalism, a woman cannot vote.

Nor can she attend college, let alone law school.

2. Originalism is a fraud

It is an excuse used to justify the result they reverse-engineered. "I'm sorry, it's not my fault I ruled that way. Blame Madison."

Scalia once used the same rationale to come to two opposite conclusions. In the same week.
