Canadian Lawyer and Atheist Antonin Pribetic tweets to Marco Randazza and Jordan Rushie that he’d like to know what my “malfunction” is. Marco charitably replies that while he had trouble figuring out the point of my last post he doesn’t believe I have ill intentions. Jordan appears to make fun of some of my choices in capitalization. Let me spell it out for yinz. The Salty Droid suggested that [EV] is a “media whore” for representing Crystal Cox on appeal. Prior to that Marco himself insinuated at Popehat that [EV] is motivated by his own ego to represent Cox on appeal rather than his love for the First Amendment. That is fucking bullshit, and is particularly tasteless and suspect given Marco’s past and present “relationship” with Ms. Cox. I’ve read the briefs [EV] has filed in the case and posted on his blog. As one might expect, his arguments are persuasive. If they win on appeal people similarly situated to those presently being sued by Joseph Rakofsky and defended by Marco would presumably benefit significantly.
But I have to suppose Marco’s own ego is now bound up with the outcome of this appeal. When it’s over will he be able to say “I told you so,” or will he look like an ass?
That is the fucking Point.
