Another Round on Originalism and Liberty from Ilya Somin and Ed Whelan
Michael Ramsey

At Liberty Law Forum, Ilya Somin has a thoughtful reply to commentary (from Ed Whelan, Peter Lawler and Hadley Arkes) on his initial post How Constitutional Originalism Promotes Liberty (discussed here).

Ed Whelan has further thoughts in response at NRO here, and there is a further reply from Professor Somin here.

(Professor Somin mentions me in passing in his latest post, saying that I "agree[ ] that the rule of law is an instrumental rather than intrinsic justification for originalism."  I do believe that.  I'm not sure that this puts me on his side of the Somin/Whelan debate, however).
