Say It Ain't So
The New Yorker (from whom I stole the cartoon at left) is reporting that my first choice for clerk and best fan, the judicial starf**ker Article 3 Groupie, is in fact the fictional creation of a sweet and somewhat dorky looking guy in New Jersey named David Lat.
In case you are wondering why I can no longer link to her site, it's because the Department of Justice has already taken it down by force.
Don't worry "D3L" (as you now will be known to us), when I am elevated to the court, I will certainly support an anonymous blogger shield law, similar to the one that far less savory characters have pleaded for.
As far as David himself, don't worry. The US Attorney's office in Newark might not be the same thing as clerking for the Supremes, but plenty of people have gone on to great things from there.
For those of you interested in the write-in and call-in campaign to "Free Underneath their Robes and Protect the First Amendment," the US Attorney's office in Newark can be contacted as follows:
U.S. Attorney's Office
