  •  Yoo has again and again proven his incompetency (15+ / 0-)

    allowing ideology to intrude again and again into his published opinions.  I have not heard him lecture in the classroom but it seems some blogs have reported he teaches what he preaches.  If so, he does a grave injustice to his students.

    If his writings do not reveal a basic ignorance of core law concepts, enough to get him fired, it should at least be enough to ensure he is never offered tenure  

    •  We Were Warned ABout His Type (14+ / 0-)

      In Karl Poppers book "Enemies of the The Open Society" he says that totalitarian states will always have corrupt intellectuals lined up to whore themselves and justify the states actions.

      It doesn't matter how stupid and evil they have to behave or that they throw away their reputation. All they care about is seeing their name in the history books and cashing that pay check. good and evil never enter into it.

      Yoo also gives meaning to the phrase "the banality of evil," because he is an unctous, smarmy little toady dripping with smug insincerity.  

      It's sad to think there is a family of Yoos cut from the same cloth who don't have the integrity to disown him.

      It's all so clear to me now. I'm the keeper of the cheese. And you're the lemon merchant. Get it? And he knows it.

      The law says people have to report political contributions of over $200.

      Why should a corporation (person) not have to comply as well?

      I thought you were some sort of expert on the law.  Apparently this is not the case.

      Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
