This is scary. I’m not even a lawyer, but I think I might understand Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s job better than she does.

For future reference: No, it’s not the job of the SCOTUS to tailor its rulings to conform to public opinion. It’s their job to ensure that laws abide by the Constitution, regardless of public opinion. That's why we don't pick Justices by popular elections or with an "American Idol"-style TV contest.
