The faculty lounge has reopened for its holiday party, but there’s still plenty of business to dispense with. On this final installment of 2020, Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are tackling a stocking full of issues: Does a suit from the Texas Attorney General stand any chance of being the Hail Mary that the Trump campaign needs? Can the courts rein in the Michael Flynn pardon? Who’s the least menacing candidate to be Joe Biden’s Attorney General? Does the Supreme Court’s smackdown of Andrew Cuomo represent a turning point on COVID restrictions? Will the justices save President Trump’s plan to exclude illegal immigrants from the census? Has the era of government by executive order gone too far? And finally, how, is it possible that Gavin Newsom can unilaterally end the automobile as we know it in California?

    @troysenik, you are irreplaceable. Hope you are feeling better. @johnyoo, @blueyeti, we need the picture of John dressed up to eat his McRib posted here for all to see.

    “Nobody would hold it against her”? I certainly intend to hold it against Sally Yates. Not that that matters.

    I agree. If she’s a nominee for anything she should be microscopically investigated and dumped. For the most part Biden should have his cabinet as he likes – but he should wait for it. I think what’s good for the goose is great for the gander… Maybe next time when the shoe’s on the other foot they’ll think twice about it. (I know – that would require a first thought)


    I kinda imagined John enjoying his McRib in a little black cocktail dress. Its San Fransisco after all.

    I had a McRib the other day. Tasty; but soggy.
