   Poor Walter Olson, people keep mistaking the Editor of Overlawyered.com

its poll to find the Top 20 Legal Thinkers in America.  I’m sure Walter would

be the first to tell you that not being a lawyer may be one of the best ways

to – or even acknowledged – the devastating criticisms my friend and colleague

Eugene Volokh routinely directs at their Bushism of the Day column?”  We ask:

Why should they have to?  Anyone who reads Slate‘s Bushism series knows

why they do it.  Point-by-point refutation (often overkilling the topic and audience

to the point of mental numbness) is not going to change even one mind.  It must

instead make the average reader say “I get it, I get it, I get it already, Eugene!”

no one has taken our faith-based law school exam.
