    How do you ratfuckers know what these libertarian gurus really think?

  • David Weigel||

    Hey dude, don't fuck with me. Besides I prostrated myself over at Big Government in hopes of receiving absolution for my sins. .

  • ||

    I'm about sick of people calling judges that turn over unconstitutional precedents as activist judges. Throwing out decades of the courts allowing government to overstep its bounds is originalism not activism.

  • Max||

    Calling judges as... what a ratfucking turn of phrase.

  • ||

    You're finally right about something. Neither of those sentences is worth a shit. But the point was made.

  • Max||

    The point is usually lost when the prose is so convoluted that it becomes a distraction. But it's such a little point. Who gives a fuck?

  • Jordan||

    No, actually when you resort to picking apart someone's grammar instead of their point, it means you don't have a point.

  • Christian louboutin seller||

    That's too bad .

  • Michael Jordan||

    im so doubht that Conservatives v. Libertarians: Judicial Restraint and Constitutional.

  • db||

    im so exchange that point 1 against point 2: sour bagels and deliberative.

  • mr simple||

    Will a video o this event be made available to those of us who don't live near DC?

  • ||

    I think you should hold this in your Sepulveda Blvd offices.

  • ||

    OK, thats making a lot of sense now. Seriously.


  • JEP||

    Webcast? Or at least a decent quality youtube video...

    unless there are cops there...
