Law Professor Cage Match

I wrote here about a column in the Rocky Mountain News in which law professor Paul Campos called fellow professor Glenn Reynolds a “fascist” and an “extremis[t]” for suggesting that the administration should consider selectively killing Iranian mullahs and nuclear scientists rather than planning for possible military action, and hinted that Glenn should be fired from his job at the University of Tennessee as an “accessory to murder.” The News has now given Glenn an opportunity to respond to Campos, here. The result isn’t pretty; check it out if you enjoy a good smackdown. It’s remarkable, I think, how often liberals don’t let ignorance of a subject stand in the way of vitriolic name-calling and over-the-top accusations.
I’m happy to see, too, since I respect Glenn’s judgment, that his analysis of the legal issues is consistent with the one I offered yesterday.
