Slate: Posner on Gingrich's critique of judicial supremacy

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2011/12/newt_gingrich_and_the_supreme_court_the_liberal_scholars_who_support_his_critique_on_judicial_supremacy_.single.html

Not a ton of comments at this point, except to say that in some discussions out in blog-land I've expressed some reservations about a judicial basis for reversing Roe v. Wade because it seems the initial problem was judicial supremacy.  Not everyone agrees with that and I don't expect everyone to agree with that, but it's interesting to note that there are liberals as well as conservatives who have somehow managed to agree that the judicial branch constitutes a court that is, at the risk of a silly pun, just a little too supreme.
