In the beginning, there were three: a libertarian, a conservative, and a socialist who (according to Fed lore) started the Federalist Paper in 1986. Now one of the founding fathers, Neil M. Gorsuch, CC ’88 and FiJi frat boy (not the socialist, Bwog surmises) has been nominated to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. If he’s confirmed, he’d be the youngest member in the federal circuit court system at 39–only about 18 years removed from Columbia’s conservative voicebox turned humor rag.
Bwog wonders if the nominators are party to Mr. Gorsuch’s senior yearbook quote:
“The illegal we do immediately, the unconstitutional takes a little
longer.” – Henry Kissinger, August 29, 1967
