The law is very complex.

I was looking at one of those partisan blogs run by a lawyer. This lawyer is so insecure about his knowledge of the law that he sometimes actually discusses legal issues. How silly!

I do not like to use my position as a law professor to make pronouncements about what the law means because the law is very complicated. Why should I make a judgement about whether or not the president violated the FISA statute, for instance? It is much more responsible to allow my commenters to make such judgements, for obvious reasons I think it would be irresponsible to explain. Only partisans want such "explanations" in order to twist them to serve their own partisan agenda.

Clearly, it would be absurd for a law professor on a blog about constitutional law to actually look at the relevant statute. What if the only conclusion that could emerge from such an exercise is that the president has broken the law? That would be a partisan conclusion. And I am above such cheap political point-scoring. I am sure you agree.

You are such a fuckwit, Ann. And that's why I love you. I feel like I can say all sorts of things to you that I could to, for example, Ann Althouse.

Couldn't, rather. Damn, I guess I need more self-reflection.

I find you apt, professor. In fact, your aptness is what I admire most about you.

Once one has left college and law school, why keep or read any of the books one accumulated? One has been prepared to comment on a wide variety of subjects, so why stick to the old ones? for instance, one can enjoy doughnuts but not care for sprinkles on them. My compliments to you Dear Blogress for expanding your horizon and that of your readers.

While in life there seem many more grey areas than not, sometimes one has to open the box and declare Schrodinger's cat living or dead... keeping the lid on indeterminacy seems illogical in this case. But that's only my opinion. I don't know if you're aware of the physics/logic experiment, but it seems an appropriate analogy.

Even the scientist, as non-partisan observer, needs to become entwined in their own experiment to some degree. To believe otherwise would be intellectual dishonesty. It's your ability to remain objective while scoring the points which matters.
