News alert: The Framers were politicians, too

Charles Pierce waxes irate about the cult of the Tenth Amendment, which as he notes, was drafted so as not to mean anything by politicians who didn't want it to mean anything.

(His quotation from Meier's Ratification reminds me that I need to read that. So many books, so little time.)

... From Pierce's comment thread:
How is that "Tenthers" can be so knowledgable about the nuances of constitutional history and original intent, but look at time-lapse photos of the South Pole and can't see melting?
