Conservative talk host, lawyer, and frequent National Review contributor Mark R. Levin comes out firing against the Supreme in Men in Black, accusing the institution of corrupting the ideals of America’s fathers. The court, in Levin’s estimation, pursues an ideology-based activist agenda that oversteps its authority within the . Levin examines several decisions in the court’s to illustrate his point, beginning with the landmark Marbury v. Madison case, wherein the court granted itself the power to declare acts of the branches of unconstitutional. He devotes later chapters to other key cases culminating in issues such as same-sex marriage and the McCain-Feingold finance reform bill. Like effective attorneys do, Levin packs in copious material and delivers his points with tremendous vigor, excoriating the justices for instances where he feels strict const! itutional constructivism gave way to biased interpretation. But Levin’s definition of “activism” seems inconsistent. In the case of McCain-Feingold, the court declined to rule on a bill already passed by and by the president, but Levin, who thinks the bill violates the First Amendment, still accuses them of activism even when they were actually passive. To his talk-radio listeners, Levin’s hard-charging style and dire warnings of the court’s direction will strike a resonant tone of alarm, though the hyperbole may be a bit off-putting to the uninitiated. As an attack on the vagaries of decisions rendered by the Supreme Court and on some current justices, Men in Black scores points and will likely lead sympathetic juries to conviction. –John Moe.
