  • You know what would have been awesome, 2012-Bill Clinton versus 1980-Ronald Reagan in 2008. I'm not saying that Slick Willy would have beaten the Great Communicator, but it's always a bad idea to bet against Bill.

    Election 2012, LSAT, Non-Sequiturs

    Non-Sequiturs: 09.07.12

    * Concurring Opinions has the unsent emails from the Scalia-Posner flap. It’s the funniest thing since they explained how professors grade. [Concurring Opinions]

    * Since a lot of smart kids are not taking the LSAT and applying to law school, maybe this is an opportunity for kids who are not so great at standardized testing to get into a better school than they would have under normal circumstances. Of course, that’s not what I would do. If a bunch of people suddenly start running in one direction, I’m the kind of brother who starts running with them and figures out later what all the fuss is about. [The Careerist]

    * Ohio rescinds it’s early voting directive and asks Sixth Circuit for a stay. [Election Law Blog]

    * Charlotte bankers survive the Democratic National Convention. Somehow. [Dealbreaker]

    * The problem with owning a gun is that eventually, you are going to give yourself a reason to use it. [NY Daily News]

    * Former tennis star ready to return serve at Columbia law school. Obviously, I’m using “star” a little bit broadly since I’m talking about a man who finds himself in the drunken class of 2015. [Dealbook]

    * You have to think that Bill Clinton would have made the best trial lawyer ever. “Can you see her? I want you to picture that little girl. [bites lip.] Now imagine she’s white.” [What About Clients?]
