Legal realists will find much here to admire, but those who hope the law can be something more than applied pragmatism, not so much.
Recently, Judge Richard Posner said, “I’ve become less conservative since the Republican Party started becoming goofy.” A very peculiar claim in a couple of ways. I had the same reaction to this that David Bernstein had. Will Posner respond to Bernstein? Judge Posner is probably a genius, but what possibly could he say?
