TPM Reader CS checks in …

That Post story was a great example of bogus even-handedness in action. And Sunstein’s statement that Yoo doesn’t deserve vilification is an example of the over-clubbiness of the legal profession.

Set aside Yoo’s book on presidential powers, which is tendentious and unconvincing but well-written. His “torture memo” is inarguably a horrific piece of legal reasoning, which uses lawyerly cleverness to evade the plain sense of words and endorse the policies his superiors wanted endorsed. It’s an utter embarrassment, by any measure.
