I believe @SenWarren and find the @BernieSanders denial incredible. To her credit, Elizabeth Warren won’t spend time attacking Sanders over this. But I fully expect his supporters to attack both Senator Warren and all those— including me — who believe her. So be it.

What's cringe-worthy about that letter? He says Kagan will be the intellectual leader of the progressive faction, more that Soto, and that's been absolutely true.

Tribe testified before Congress in favor of Kennedy's nomination decades ago. I don't think that criticism of familiarity is fair. But LJL @ that last paragraph.

here he is during the Alito hearing. he said he was *not* testifying against Alito and then he tried to shit on Alito without mercy. Arlen Specter deftly gave Tribe the back of his hand, Tribe tried to quibble, Specter swatted Tribe away ("recommendations aside, you're saying ...) and Tribe came off like a weasel.

I took con law and evidence from Tribe. I don’t remember that we ever referenced the actual Constitution or the FRE. However, we did have to read “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” and B.F. Skinner’s “Impulse Control in Pigeons.” No shit.

Not from that book! Not a good place to learn either subject. In Larry's defense he spent a lot of time on the balance between probative value and prejudicial influence. The theme of "Zen" is the interplay between the rational and the romantic. I get it, and it was sort of fun, but to a dumb ass law student his approach undervalued actual knowledge of the Rules of Evidence. As with most HLS classes, you were expected to learn all that "black letter" stuff on your own. It did not come up much in class. When he began Con Law with "Impulse Control in Pigeons," I started thinking maybe he was a liberal.

Tribe represented the restaurant Grendel's Den in the case Larkin v Grendel's Den in which the restaurant challenged a Massachusetts law which allowed religious establishments to prohibit liquor sales in neighboring properties. The case reached the United States Supreme Court in 1982 where the court overturned the law as violating of the separation of church and state.[15] The Lawyer's Guide to Writing Well criticizes the opening of his brief as a "thicket of confusing citations and unnecessary definitions" stating that it would have been "measurably strengthened" if he had used the "more lively imagery" that he had used in a footnote later in the document.[16]
