A reader emailed me a link to this post over at Dembski’s blog, and I intended to reply to it today. Alas, Wes Elsberry beat me to it and probably did a better job than I would have done anyway.

Dave’s Solo Performance, Act 2

I thought I was done pummeling DaveScot’s immeasurable ignorance on this issue, but then I saw this comment where he interjects his thoughts in bold. It’s just astonishing how someone can be so wrong about virtually everything and be totally unaware of it. It’s like the perfect storm of stupidity. And you’re gonna love how…

Sandefur Replies to DaveScot

Sandefur took a short break from his travels to briefly reply to DaveScot’s terminal cluelessness in a post titled “Why DaveScot Should Stop Playing Lawyer”. I’ll just quote the first paragraph: DaveScot is an especially belligerent idiot who was happily adopted as a co-blogger by the credibility-free Intelligent Design proponent William Dembski. Normally, I ignore…

And Dave’s Solo Act

If DaveScot didn’t exist, it would be necessary to invent him. Who could give up the constant amusement of watching him take brave leaps in the dark and land with a resounding thud? Here’s his latest, where he entirely misreads a post by Sandefur at the Panda’s Thumb and still doesn’t get the distinction between…

Larry’s Solo Act

Dave and Larry don’t always perform together, of course. Larry has his own act, which can be seen at his blog pretty much every day. And he’s continued to peddle nonsense on this issue over there. (1) The attorney fee awards that defendants must pay in establishment clause cases are often draconian. The Dover school…

The Dave and Larry Show

DaveScot and Larry Fafarman really should take their act on the road, I think. I’d pay money to see these keystone cops try and explain legal concepts to each other and argue about it, wouldn’t you? Dave’s post on jury nullification continues to provide much amusement. As Dan said in a comment, when Larry is…

Judge Jones on his Critics

A new article in the York Daily Record about Judge Jones and how he’s handled the aftermath of the Dover decision (okay, it’s a few days old, but I just found out about it from Burt Humburg, and yes I’ve informed him that he really should be more on the ball and get me this…

You’ve gotta hand it to the DI Media Complaints Division – when their PR team gives them a catchphrase-laden response to something, they repeat it so many times that they begin to sound like Rain Man (just replace Judge Wapner with Judge Jones). Rob Crowther continues to beat this drum in yet another post calling…

Okay folks, I’m going to make a prediction here on the substance of the next attack on Judge Jones. In an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about Jones’ recent speeches defending judicial independence, we find this little tidbit: Edward Madeira, a senior partner with Pepper Hamilton L.L.P., which represented Dover plaintiffs, described Jones as the…

The more I see from Judge John Jones, the man who presided over the Dover trial, the more I like him. He recently gave a speech to the ADL and they’ve put the transcript of that speech on their webpage. I urge you all to read it. He doesn’t get into the specifics of defending…
