The Volokh Conspiracy asks:
...when and how "international law" gained such cult-like status that well-educated people believe that merely invoking it (or their interpretation of it) is sufficient to settle even the most nuanced and contentious debates, that it should always trump domestic law, etc.
It just does. That's why.
In other news, Whiskey Bar saw it all go down:
The first warning that a hit was in the progress actually came from Byron York at the National Review , who warned in a June 12 column that "no person, and no movement, can attract as much attention as DailyKos has received recently without eventually attracting scrutiny." York claimed he was referring to Kos's writings, which are certainly fair game for criticism. But in hindsight, it looks like York was dropping a fairly heavy hint that even more vigorous "scrutiny" was coming down the pike.
I'll never forget the day I got the signal. All the training, relationship building, and sacrifice finally paying off in a coordinated symbiotic protest against Kos. And in doing so, assisting (in my own very small way) with the delivery of scrutiny to the Dino Democrats.
Thank you great leader, for the chance to act.
