  1. Yes, congratulations, Professor. And as others have said, it’s certainly well-deserved.

    We will have cause to worry, when you don’t make the list!

  2. DAMN, didn’t make it this year – AGAIN. Maybe I’ll have to get into law school first.

    Meanwhile how do you rank lawyers? How do you compare the work Mr. Turley does in court to what Alan Baum does to what Berry Sheck does to what 1800lawyers does?

  3. Lotta,
    You are correct. The Speaker is well known in D.C.’s watering holes. The alleged drinking would explain the penchant for crying at the drop of a hat!

  4. Raf, If he doesn’t have a drinking problem then there’s a lot of talk about a non-issue. Ed Schultz has referred to him more than once as ‘the bartender in chief’. Talking heads on TV have speculated that he cries as much as he does as a symptom of his drinking. During the health care bill debate/voting I heard more than one talking head say as a throw-away line that the long hours he would have to put in would put a serious crimp in his nightlife.

    One talking head (maybe Chris Matthews, asked a guest if JB’s drinking was getting out of hand because when JB finally visited the White House and met with the President he was served a fruit drink and JB allegedly said later that the visit might have been more productive if he had been offered wine, Matthews asked to the effect that if JB needs to drink during the work day isn’t that a bad sign.

    There’s a lot of talk about his drinking habits.


  5. sorry for the glitch in this posting. I am in Mikwaukee (Packers territory!) for a speech and just saw the double posting.

  6. JenMan,
    I liked that new listing, Lawless Cockroach! I think Mukasey and Gonzo and Ashcroft were probably high on that list.

  7. Prof Turley-

    Congratulations on receiving this fine honor. Your defense of Judge Porteous allowed all of us a rare opportunity to see your outstanding legal skills on live TV and online. And, thanks for the information and enjoyment we get every day on the Turley Blog.

  8. Elaine,

    Great find on Yoo, particularly the part where he is laughed at.

    He is one guy that I’d like to crush his testicles with my stiletto heels and ask him, in the kindest and most respectful way I possibly can, if it’s torture.

  9. Professor Rice wrote:


    “If it turns out that Obama knew he was ineligible when he campaigned and when he took the oath as President, it could be the biggest political fraud in the history of the world. As long as Obama refuses to disclose the records, speculation will grow and grow without any necessary relation to the truth. The first step toward resolving the issue is full discovery and disclosure of the facts.”

    We need a committee or subcommittee of the House to start resolving this issue with full discovery and disclosure of the facts.


  10. One consolation for John Yoo- He placed first on the Annual Top 500 Lawyers List compiled by LawlessCockroach.

  11. rafflaw,

    I say this not in Jest…but what drinking problem?

  12. Buddha,
    I think the speculation about John Boehner’s drinking problem needs to be resolved. The rumors and allegations have been going on too long now, with no reliabel access to the truth. Why won’t he just address the issue and put it to rest???

  13. Here is my vote for a top lawyer:

    Charles E. Rice, professor emeritus at Notre Dame Law School

    “Notre Dame Law School Professor Says Obama Eligibility Issue Should Be Resolved.”

    By Charles E. Rice

    “The speculation about President Obama’s eligibility goes on and on, with no reliable access to the truth and with no end in sight. It is time for a new approach.”
