I feel like I'm up at the podium at the Oscars. I have so many people to thank.
Actually, not really, I only have one person to thank.
Article 3 Groupie, one of the greatest legal minds of her generation (at least those who are not members of the Elect), made a heartfelt plea on my behalf at the eleventh hour, when it looked like JM Luttig was going to take the nomination.
Article 3 Groupie's letter, I have it on good authority, was read by George Bush himself. He then told his son to pick me.
Thank you, A3G. While I have mentioned your site and its wisdom before, I realize that you now deserve special recognition.
Plus, you published the young and handsome picture of me. You flirt.
