WaPo editorial board has this contradictory teaser tag line for its response article on the Obamacare ruling:

“The Supreme Court finds a way to respect majority rule and uphold the Constitution.”

Majority rule is EXACTLY what the Constitution restrains. No good democracy, and the US in particular, is majority rule. Whatever the polity does, however they elect legislators, leaders, or effect laws, a good Constitution ensures the tyranny of the majority is NOT permissible. That is, that majority rule is not permissible.

WaPo editors and pretty much everybody on left and many on the right don’t get this.
