Legal “Scholar”

Ann Althouse is more than just a unending source of material for Thers.  She is, rather inconceivably, a Professor of Law at the University of Wisconsin. According to the University’s website she teaches Constitutional Law and Civil Procedure in Madison, the State’s Capitol, literally blocks away from the State’s Supreme Court.

She’s “taught” at the University for nearly 15 years.

Yet when the matter of State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser placing his manly hands around fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley’s womanly neck, Althouse found a novel way to defend the conservative from this vile assault upon his hands by a woman’s neck:

“From what I have heard, Bradley is significantly larger than Prosser.”

To which Wisconsin blogger Illusory Tenant reasonably asks,

What, she’s never even seen them?

It’s strange that Althouse, who allegedly professes the law in Madison, Wisconsin, has not attended a hearing at the State Supreme Court, which also sits in Madison (just a brief sashay down State St. in fact).

She’s only been a Law Professor in Madison for 15 years, how could she possibly know what the State Supreme Court members look like?

Just look at this picture, Ann Walsh Bradley is clearly a well-known bruiser of epic proportions.  Crack research as always Althouse.

Although Althouse does know some judges well — those on American Idol.

A PDA Success Story (FDL bigwigs, take note)



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
