Here's a clip from tonight's Hardball in which the Judicial Confirmation Network's Wendy Long makes the remarkable claim that Brown v. Board of Ed was an originalist court decision. I hadn't heard this talking point before, but apparently the right has been trying to figure out some way to spin Brown as an originalist decision for some time. Keep at it, guys! I'm sure you'll crack the code someday.

On the other hand, given that "originalism" as a judicial philosophy denotes only the median conservative position on any given issue at any given moment in time, I suppose Brown is an originalist position after all...
