Professor Tribe and the Federalist Society
I am having trouble believing that I just heard Professor Tribe say what I think he said about the Federalist Society, so I will wait for the transcript. It is one thing for some shameless pol to denounce a serious group devoted to serious conversation about the law. It is another thing entirely for a scholar to suggest that a group largely devoted to scholarship and the improvement of the adminsitration of justice is some sort of Illuminati.
And if Professor Tribe implied, as I think he did, that Judge Alito was campaigning for a SCOTUS appointment when Judge Alito appeared before a Federalist Society group after the 2000 election, then Tribe just joined the serial slanderers of the Committee.
