"Ann Althouse is on the list, too."

Um. Uh. Yeah. In a total drive-by smear.

Ann, you court being facile then you grip when nobody takes you seriously.

bagoh20 said...

Of all the stuff they could say, that's what they come up with?

Jay Retread said...

You went on Andrew Briebart for Christsakes. You don't even take yourself seriously. How can you expect others too?

Marilee said...

So, from all the material they have to choose from on your blog or your academic achievments they chose the breast/tight sweater issue. Yes a drive by smear.

Excuse misspellings. I am typing on I phone.

Michelle Weyenberg has to be a Feministing reader. She might even have come over here to post a comment about being OUTRAGED at your heartless treatment of St Valenti back in 2006. Ah, the good old days...

vbspurs said...

Excuse misspellings????? That's like Genghis Khan excusing himself for not having upright posture on a horse.

Chip S. said...

I'd be more upset about being on a list that includes Bud Selig.

shiloh said...

Indeed, let's take a closer look at those breasts lol

Congrats!

Bill White said...

Michelle Weyenberg couldn't even be bothered to copy your blog address from her url bar - she gives it as althouse.com (which is owned by a squatter).

Thanks for the best laugh I've had today so far! Haha!

Somebody said there's no such thing as bad publicity. But that was Hollyweird and they could drop into the sea any day.

This is why the Cheyenne said, "A dog has soiled my lodge".

Probably applies to trolls, too.

Hips are as important as breasts, at a great distance, in identifying the sex of pedestrians that are part of your scene.

The curious thing is that you can tell.

With breasts, it's the slight shading difference top to bottom that lets you know. You can't tell near darkness.

Hips always work.

I imagine that people dress fashion-wise to aid in telling, as well.

...while crouching in the bushes outside the Altouse & Meade's place.

What an idiot. The "tight knit sweater" comment was only one of many symptoms of the disease: feminist blogger suplicating herself before a man known to be sexual predator in the workplace.

The writer of the article is almost as ignorant as Jay Retread.

Conservative Libertine said...

I dunno...

If I'm a pre-law student looking for schools and profs, the lady blogging law prof who is talking about breasts moves to the top of my list.

But that's just me

Paddy O said...

Is this a list of professors who have popular blog sites that can post links which will get the list site more traffic?

Big Mike said...

I don't quite understand the article. Do they mean that you devote your lectures on Religion and the Constitution to talking about Jessica Valenti's breasts?

And just when I was thinking that Northwestern was the right Big Ten school to attend.

What a hard-to-use website they have!

Designed for ease of use by lawyers.

You're right Ugh

The Drill SGT said...

The author didn't think much of John Yoo either. "Intentional Professional Misconduct" :)

what is the point of listing folks as Profs you ought to learn from, then slurring them?

She did love Liz Warrren though. Though based on what she said about Warren, I'd say the author should flunk "Legal Research 401". As far as I know, if the new CFPB ever gets set up, it's unlikely that Congress gave itself the power to appoint the head of an executive branch agency as the author states. just sayin.


I also got a big kick out of the next article about most diverse law schools. It was written by the same sort of guy that passes out participation awards to the kids soccer players for showing up.
examples:
- Black Law schools get A+ for diversity. ")
- WI law school gets an award for beating the odds :)
- UC schools get diversity awards for having a zillion asians :)

Exactly. Why mention AA at all if that's what they discuss about her?

James said...

Interesting...mainly because the UW Law School student evaluations say entirely the opposite.

John Burgess said...

Well, they spelled your name right and got the URL right. Not bad for a committee of lawyers!

Ann Althouse said...

"Is this a list of professors who have popular blog sites that can post links which will get the list site more traffic?"

It's blatant link whoring. I hope whoever writes that finds out I'm calling him/her a whore.

Phil 3:14 said...

What was the point of the article (other than to be another one of those ubiquitous lists). Can someone complete a law degree by taking classes from disparate law professors across the country?

It all seems a bit silly. But then again I'm not a lawyer.

Paddy O said...

Now that I was able to read it (it wouldn't load the first time I tried), I'd say this article is immensely embarrassing for them.

Why even choose someone if they don't know what to say?

Honestly, the article sounds like they just googled terms and chose whoever came up, rather than having any actual criteria.

I, honestly, very much would be interested in sitting in on your religion and the constitution course, but not because of some blog war a few years ago, and given how reticent you are to discuss religion hereabouts, I would have loved to have a bit of outside insight into your class approach.

Alas. All I got by clicking was People magazine quality blurbs.

John Lynch said...

They don't boo nobodies.

Sue me (Sumi). I kept looking for Noah Feldman's name.

Nice of Glenn Reynolds to have had this link up. I sent it to a friend. (A graduate of Duke Law). He wrote back: BUD? Bud Selig made this list? Then he yelled "fraud." But I think, for some reason. the article is really kissing up.

You and Glenn have great blogs! And, someone who is writing an old fashioned magazine for a niche audience got a reward today ... because the article is up on the Internet.

I think it would be great to take your class, Ann. Noah Feldman's book, Divided By God, brings the legal topic of religion to life. To read about it is just mesmerizing stuff.

SteveR said...

What a hard-to-use website they have! No kidding

We had a lot of fun with that back when you first created the vortex. Its still swhirls them in.

SteveR said...

BTW I always read Retread as Retard. Go figure

Paco Wové said...

"...mainly because the UW Law School student evaluations say entirely the opposite."

Just curious - when you filled yours out, how many of your sockpuppet identities did you use, "James|Mike|Bob|Carl|Dylan"?

PaulV said...

I had Dean Monrad Paulsen for domestic relations. He taught that as a conflicts of law course (area he was interested in as he let others teach Conflicts). He said most federal law on conflicts came from the laws of Utah. He was later head of Yeshiva in NYC.

Oh the irony ...

Partridge said...

The next article in the mag is one about the "Most Diverse Law Schools." What's odd here is that Howard University is listed as A+ for having a high percentage of black/minority students. A traditionally black university has a high number of black students -- wow!! But also, the article keys one in on what is really considered diversity in this country -- not the presence of a wide range of groups like one would think! No, it's just a high number of the right group.

Idiots.

The earliest designs were preotwuq simple affairs, often mere "Roger Vivier " of leather to protect the feet from rocks, debris, and cold. Since vivier shoes use more leather than sandals, their use was more common in cold climates. By the Middle Ages, turn-vivier shoes had been developed with toggled flaps or drawstrings to tighten the leather around the foot for a better fit. As Europe gained in wealth and power, fancy roger vivier heels became status symbols. Toes became long and pointed, often to ridiculous proportions. Artisans created unique footwear for rich patrons, and new styles developed. Eventually the modern roger vivier flats , with a sewn-on sole, was devised. Since the 17th century, most leather roger vivier pumps have used a sewn-on sole. This remains the standard for finer-quality dress vivier shoes today. Until around 1800, vivier shoes were made without differentiation for the left or right foot. Such roger vivier sale are now referred to as "straights".[citation needed] Only gradually did the modern foot-specific vivier shoes become standard.Since the mid-20th Century, advances in rubber, plastics, synthetic cloth, and industrial adhesives have allowed manufacturers to create roger vivier chaussures that stray considerably from traditional crafting techniques.
