World Cup refereeing as constitutional interpretation

The World Cup is underway in Russia, and not a game goes by when I am not reminded of our very own US Supreme Court and how it interprets the Constitution.  This cartoon from the Guardian neatly captures why:

This is constitutional interpretation in a nutshell.  (If you don’t believe me, read yesterday’s Gill v. Whitford decision and try to make sense of it.  You won’t.  Or Shelby County.  Or Heller.  Or . . .)

The triumph of the conservative revolution is to make so many people believe this is not so.
