Non-Sequiturs: 02.16.12

Deep down, don't most Republicans want to skip 2012 and just get to the 2016 election?

* The New Jersey assembly passed gay marriage, but Chris Christie intends to veto it. This is how it’s done, Mitt Romney. You have to start pandering to the most extreme and hateful elements of your party long before you’re actually running for president. [Think Progress]

* Links that make your legal website look outdated and silly. [Ross’s Law Marketing Blog]

* Can you imagine a professor claiming copyright ownership of your notes from his class? Look, if a professor could succinctly state the main point, all schooling would get done in half the time, and there wouldn’t be any law reviews. [Mindshift]

* Apparently, Target knows when you are pregnant, and it might sell that private information to others. For its next trick, I hope Target figures out when you are boning a woman taking contraceptives, but hypocritically trying to deny others access to it. [Not So Private Parts / Forbes]

* In other pregnant woman news, a D.C. law firm is accused of un-hiring one. I wish we could make a rule: any man who gets a woman knocked up will suffer the same as she does professionally. I promise you, it would shut up all these men who want to tell women what to do with their bodies. [WSJ Law Blog]

* I don’t think this happens all of the time. And by “this” I mean actually catching the racist cop on tape. [The Root]

* Hey, creating lawyer jobs counts as job creation. [Overlawyered]

* Serious legal question: can Knicks fans get a temporary restraining order to prevent Kim Kardashian from dating, or even talking to, Jeremy Lin? I’ll file the goddamn papers myself to keep that big-breasted succubus away from the LINstigator. [Gawker]
