You forgot to mention Jew, in your list.
I’ve read him from the beginning of his blogging days. He is the real deal, as far as I’m concerned, and I’m as skeptical of lawyers as they come. Mr. Jacobson is to the right of Glenn Reynolds (the Instapundit). He is a big fan of SP, as odd as that seems for his demographic.
“You forgot to mention Jew, in your list.”
No, I did not mention Jew because it is not relevant. There are Jews and there are Jews, and then there are yet more Jews. Intellectually and philosophically they are all over the chart - eg Barney Frank, Joseph Lieberman, George Soros, Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand, Woody Allen, Isaac Bashevis Singer and Bebe Netanyahu to name several very divergent compass points. American lawyers and academicians on the other hand are much more uniform in their mindsets, methodologies and objectives and I do regard them with suspicion. That is not to say that they are all clones, but the exceptions prove the rule.
Small government though as befits a libertarian.
Have lurked at both Instapundit and Legal Insurrection for a couple of years now; both are pretty much straight shooters, but I agree that Jacobson is more conservative than Reynolds.
Reynolds' wife (Dr. Helen) is attractive if one likes brunettes. (I prefer redheads, though, which must be why I married a blonde.)
