A classic ad hominem

From a comment at the Wall Street Journal's law blog:
Laurence Tribe is a down in the weeds socialist. Glib comments referring to certain issues as States' issues only is nothing but a self-serving ingratiation to this big government advocate. — "Tom"
The WSJ had asked Prof. Tribe to evaluate potential attempts by Congress to get back the AIG bonuses from the perspective of several provisions in the U.S. Constitution. One of them appears in Art. I, Sec. 10, and reads in pertinent part:
No State shall pass any law impairing the obligation of contracts.
So which part of "No State" doesn't Tom understand? [/glib]
