57. There Is No Evidence, Sir, For Describing Gov. Dean As A 'Fervent Proponent Of State's Rights'

And yet this mis-characterization was made, and not made without purpose. The purpose I suggest is a reasonable inference from the act.

I note that in all your comments, you neglect to engage the substance, namely that the view of the Commerce Clause Mr. Greenwald expresses is that of the extreme right, and a staple of right libertarian commentary, as well as dangerous in the extreme to maintainance of progressive laws and policies established in the new Deal.
