Posted by  ▪  June 19, 2011

I’m changing sometime after midnight tonight.  I think we all need a change in the field of…

Posted by  ▪  June 17, 2011
at legalinsurrection.blogspot.com? It’s possible, but the day is not over.The most amazing thing to me is not that Christie tells the voter that it’s none of her business where he sends his kids to school, but that he pays $38,000 per year in property taxes.  Ouch.http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9?isVid=1——————————————–Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTubeVisit…

I’ve told the story of how Legal Insurrection got started before, but I’ll give it a little more flavor. Prior to starting this blog, I was completely non-political.  I may have donated small amounts of money to a handful of candidates, but I was not politically active.  Like most people, I was…

Weiner Presser – “It’s like he’s giving an acceptance speech”

Posted by  ▪  June 16, 2011
That was my wife’s comment.The Weiner resignation press conference was amazing.  He was barely apologetic, focused on his own “healing” and gave a campaign speech about how he always wanted to serve the people of New York.There were hecklers there, shouting things like “goodbye pervert” and “are you more than 7 inches?”…
