As for the Liberal ex-Yalie Law prof trying to release all the blood-thirsty terrorists, um... if you really talk to that group of lawyers, it was never really about Padilla at all and really, Padilla lost big time.
I and some friends of mine have issues with comparisons to "run-of-the-mill white boys" who are possibly accused of alleged rape. Is there anything worse than being falsely accused of raping someone?
I'd do a conservative UM law wrap up but don't have the time or inclination. Too many undercurrents for me to speak about that anyway except to say that there are always two sides. Why else would being a lawyer be so much fun.
