So, let's revisit that "literal text" approach to deciding cases, shall we? - Rex
I can't wait to see how crusty Antonin will contort himself to reach two opposite conclusions on statutory textual literalism. Now, there's no guarantee the Supreme Court will take up either the Halbig anti-Obamacare case or today's 4th Circuit repeal of anti-gay marriage bans, but is there any d...

How good is Howard Stern as a judge on America's Got Talent? - Rex

Harry Reid's nuclear option to appoint Federal judges pays off. - Rex
Well, it's likely to pay off when the full DC Court of Appeals reverses the absurdly hackish decision released yesterday by two Bush partisans. The three judges appointed after the Senate rule change away from the previously required 60 vote super majority means an 8-5 majority of Democrats to Re...
