His ex-wife is a nasty, social climbing wench.
Torie, I don't know if you get any podcasts (I'd recommend it, there's some great free stuff out there), but the Federalist society has the audio of a debate (of sorts) between Breyer and Scalia on the Constitution.
The substance is interesting, if well-worn. Basically, Breyer says that nearly every piece of legislation is unclear and so ... it can mean whatever he wants it to mean and Scalia works very hard not to say, "Steven, you ignorant slut."
It's all very cordial, of course, but you can sense Scalia's frustration.
But what strikes me is Breyer's manner of speaking and making arguments. It is almost a textbook example of a pompous imbecile. I'm not speaking in a partisan manner here, his comments are either inane or pedestrian but he acts as if he's the man who instructed both Socrates and Solomon and they both disappointed him as students.
I'd heard it and I thought you'd appreciate such a thing. The whole audio file is 90 minutes.
Thanks for the head's up. It sounds like fun. Poor Breyer just isn't very good in debates. He is too prolix, and fuzzy. He doesn't offer up examples of the application of his approach, that are in the least compelling. It is amazing he was a Harvard law professor. His classes must have really sucked. With a bit of research and preparation, I suspect I could be a more effective advocate, however disingenuous, of Breyerism, than Breyer himself. :)
I watched part of it, Scalia was amusing and clear, Breyer was droll and boring.
Are you using the word droll in some sense other than amusing?
No. You had to laugh at him, he was so proper and so boring and so liberal in his view of the constitution. Scalia had the audience laughing, Breyer practically put them to sleep.
Maybe it comes off more in the audio, but the pomposity was quite obvious to me.
That's a better word.... I was searching for the best description of what I observed. He is an odd duck, droll can be odd, too.
I really don't think Rudy has much of a shot.
Good. Get him out of the race now. After all the corruption in the GOP that cost us the last election along with the pedophile, Faggy Foley, WE DON'T NEED THIS.
Dear God in heaven, "our guys" are starting to make Bill Clinton look like Mother Teresa.
I think Breyer's substance wasn't terrible, if you are susceptible to such arguments.
It was very professorish. I've taught enough calculus classes to know how to talk so that people will listen to you but won't ask any questions.
There was an interesting thought that occurred to me. He kept saying that he didn't understand the plain meaning of a certain statute. I kept thinking, "I wouldn't go around admitting that I'm stupid." But that's just me.
>If she has moved on from her divorce and is at all happy with her current life and husband, then she won't say a thing.<
Doesn't matter because you can bet your bottom dollar that the MSM would make a bee-line to her, even offer her a few for an interview with leading questions to be answwered. Rudy is not my man, and I don't pretend to know or understand his private life, but the dirt bags wouldn't pass up badgering his ex. Too bad.
