UPDATE: Ben links to my post at Lawfare and asks, sarcastically, what I really think about his post. That’s one of the things that I genuinely like most about him: he can take it as well as dish it out. Unlike someone like David Bernstein, who complains endlessly when someone uses the same kind of rhetoric toward him that he regularly uses toward others . . . Ben knows full well and accepts that when you write as tendentiously as he does, others (i.e., me) are going to respond in kind.
