The Federal Judiciary Takes a Credibility Hit

The thing that I find particularly striking about this story linked by Instapundit is the fact that, even though these were particularly liberal lawyers, members of the American Constitution Society (the National Lawyers Guild version of con law groups), they were still shocked enough at the remarks to gasp. The fact that Federal judges have a reputation for logical sobriety sufficient to elicit those gasps makes me glad in having chosen law as a future profession, and it consequently makes me that much more annoyed that Calabresi would say something so mind-numbingly stupid.
