Hamilton may have spoke clearly but was writing about partisanship within an otherwise ethnically homogenous demos that no longer exists.

If you are shocked by Karlan, you misunderstand the nature of what is going on here. There is an ethnic motivation - think of it as an 'ulterior motive' if it helps - that lies beneath, informs, inspires and ultimately suffuses every aspect of her partisanship.

Anglo-American notions of good faith and fairplay are seen as weaknesses by Karlan and her tribe, which has so far dominated every aspect of both the current show-trial and the preceding Kavanaugh farce.

Waving the Federalist or any other irrelevant piece of Enlightenment-era wishful thinking is a waste of time and effort and finally self-defeating.
