After Midnight, I Turn into a Pump-- Er, Federalist

A weekend of studying constitutional law produced this De Novo post that kind-of sort-of almost-seems to say that... Bork was right about the inkblot?

Clearly I need to sleep. Though Bork himself has shifted position on privacy and the Ninth.
Few people now recall that once upon a time, back in the late 1960s, Robert H. Bork welcomed Griswold as an example of how the "idea of deriving new rights from old is valid and valuable. The construction of new rights can start from existing constitutional guarantees, particularly the first eight amendments, which may properly be taken as specific examples of the general set of natural rights contemplated" by the framers and particularly by the Ninth Amendment (Bork, Robert H. "The Supreme Court Needs a New Philosophy." Fortune 78 (December 1968): 170).
