Oh, Colonel Mustard.

And Jacobson is still keeping his 4-part series about how Warren is so un-American that she once put Sriracha rather than ketchup on an omelet under wraps, so Warren better build up a substantial lead…

  • It’s like the Nerf version of a hatchet job.

  • Can’t expect Mustard to understand all of that legal mumbo jumbo–he’s just a law prof. He should consult with Reynolds and Althouse before posting this stuff.

      Further evidence of the secret affirmative action program for brain dead rightwing lunatics in our nation’s law schools.

    Grist for the Fox mill.

      Yup. This was so transparently wrong that when it appeared in the previous thread several laypeople were able to eviscerate it within minutes – but its being wrong need be no barrier to its success within the all-enveloping wingnut mediasphere. This will bound and rebound within their closed ecosystem until it becomes an eternal truth.

    I love some of the shoe-leather investigative reporting. “I spoke to the MA bar overseer rep twice, and she confirmed… that what Warren said on her CV was perfectly true! Dastardly!”

      I also love the standard hackery of implication by absence. Jacobson can’t find the exact dates she was licensed in NJ and Texas, although admits she was (as recently as 2 weeks ago in NJ) and doesn’t want to wait for the response to his request in writing, so he implies something for which he has no evidence: “It is unclear whether during the years she represented Travelers and others Warren was actively licensed anywhere.” Right, she joined the NJ bar in 1977 and resigned in 2012, but maybe during the time she was actually using her membership, she let it lapse!
      Extra hackitude: Also implies that Warren resigned a couple weeks ago for the express purpose of making Jacobson’s hackery more difficult: “By resigning her New Jersey license earlier this month, Warren made it more difficult for the public to determine her pre-resignation status.” Again, no indication of why resigning makes it more difficult for Jacobson to make shit up.

        Because ketchup, made primarily of tomatos and no chili peppers, is a perfectly reasonable substitute for sriracha [sic], made primarily of chili peppers and no tomatos.

        But hey, they’re both red and come in bottles.

        Wait…they’re red?

        • greylocks

          This was meant as a reply to the OP. Sorry.

          • spencer

            It still kinda worked, somehow.

            • yum

              all fried potato dishes should be accompanied by a blend of ketchup and sriracha preferably Simply Heinz and Huy Fong

              • Warren Terra

                And Garlic sauce, if you don’t have company.

      Because calling up the BBO is so much better than their online searchable list of lawyers admitted in Massachusetts?



    This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

    These law books behind me don’t just make the office look good, they’re filled with useful legal tidbits just like that!

    Maybe this guy could get one of his 1Ls to explain how the state of Massachusetts can’t mandate who gets to argue in federal court or not. And then, of course, try to get the kid prosecuted for practicing law without a license.

    Christ. There’s dumb and then there’s “punctuating the name of your legal blog in a manner usually reserved for Black Eyed Peas songs” dumb.

      And yet we don’t know why Law Schools are so awful at producing lawyers, with such extraordinary professors.r

  • Sriracha is much tastier than ketchup and some brands are now manufactured in the US.

    • Warren Terra

      Are you aware that Sriracha, or at least the sauce Americans know as “Sriracha”, was invented in the US, by a Vietnamese immigrant?

      • I was only aware that the brand I purchased in the US was from San Jose. But, Immigrants can become citizens. The brand we have in Ghana is imported from Columbia. So not all sriracha sauces are currently made in the US.

    If William Jacobson is dealing smack out of his office at Cornell, he could lose his law license and his tenure. He’d better prove that he’s not!

    Also, must put sriracha on the shopping list.
