Good Question

It's Jesse v. Jonah at Pandagon. And here is a puzzler from Jonah:

...what liberals so often don't understand is that something can be wrong, undesirable or even illegal and still be constitutional.

OK, maybe I'm a liberal, because, like Jesse, I don't understand how something can be illegal, and still be constitutional.

However, my thought for the day - perhaps J Goldberg was thinking that something could be illegal and not be unconstitutional, as, for example, a non-Federal offense, or an offense on which the Constitution is silent. However, elimination of the double-negative leads to what looks like a false statement.
