Once again, Chief Justice John Roberts has overstepped his bounds and arrogated to himself the imagined authority to be chief lawmaker for the United States of America.

Roberts cavalierly rejected the president’s inclusion of a citizenship question on the census even though Roberts admitted its inclusion is perfectly constitutional. He rejected the question because the president’s reasoning for including it seemed “contrived,” and demanded a “better…explanation for the action taken in this case.”

He essentially said that what you want to do is permissible under the Constitution (he had to say this since citizenship questions have been on the census since 1820), but you’re going to have to come up with a better reason than “voting rights” to exercise your constitutional prerogative to ask folks about citizenship.

Worse, Roberts has invented a completely unprecedented legal principle: you can do something absolutely legal and constitutional, and I can still punish you if I don’t like what you were thinking when you did it. This is dangerous to a staggering degree.

This is nuts. It is craziness, lunacy, an utter perversion of justice and constitutional jurisprudence.
