Walter Block has a LRC article up today, Andrew Napolitano for Chief Justice, where he lists lots of libertarian lawyers he’s aware of who would be potential candidates for Ron Paulian Supreme Court nominations, and his favorites, which include Judge Andrew Napolitano, Professor Richard Epstein, and yours truly.

When you get that post, then, imitate Schwarzenegger’s first action in office, and sole virtue as Governator: Decline all but $1 of your annual salary. {rueful smile}

Hirsute and 20 years in the past, you resemble a slender Nathan Lane. Ever acted on Broadway? {non-rueful grin}

Funny, I never heard that one. But then by the time Nathan Lane became known I was no longer hirsute. In any case, I’m somewhat less gay than he is. :) In college I used to get the Alex Keaton/Michael J. Fox comparison a lot, and never quite got it; probably b/c I was slender and small framed and conservative/preppy in dress, or something.

Ah, more incentive for inveterate recidivist pirates like myself to get Dr. Paul in office! Any idea regarding the IP position of the other potential nominees?

Saying “Alex Keaton” instead of “Alex P. Keaton” is as jarring as saying “President John Kennedy”. Some things were never meant to be abbreviated.

How ironic would it be to pack the highest government court in the land with anarchists? That’s to say nothing of its usefulness: “We unanimously conclude that the state itself is unconstitutional!” How surreal.
