Re: Specter Sputters


Ed, I agree with you wholeheartedly about Specter, especially about the essential meekness of his argument. I think my friends in the psychology department would call it passive-aggressive.

I would just reiterate that, as I said here last week, I am opposed to cameras in the Court but don’t feel really strongly about it. I do feel strongly about badly made arguments. In fact, if I were in favor of cameras in the Court, I’d be really mad at Specter, whose arguments are so lame they set back the cause he seeks to advance.
