  1. Helena: For more about why liberals are uncomfortable with having an originalist on the Supreme Court, check out the excellent and well-referenced podcast Opening Arguments #49 (the relevant conversation starts at 10 minutes).

    The podcast considers Gorsuch specifically in OA40 and OA55.

    It’s worth noting that conservative judges generally do not interpret the Constitution as originalists. In fact, my grandfather is a very conservative judge in Iowa and scoffs at originalist/textualist ideology.
