To those few of you reading this who are conservatives who managed to survive Harvard Law School, my apologies. But I have to say, having read this, it’s obvious that Texas’s Wendy Davis is a typical Harvard Law School grad: thin-skinned, unprincipled, arrogant, anti-constitutional, and ill-informed. Oh, and judging by her claiming the “pro-Life” mantle for herself, appropriately Orwellian.
I know that there are good Harvard Law grads out there. I’ve always been willing to say that Harvard Law was still producing decent lawyers as late as 1980. Ted Cruz proves that intelligent people can still go in there and come out alive.
But in my experience, people like Obama and Wendy Davis are the typical Harvard Law grads of the past 30 or so years: they’re undoubtedly bright going in, but after three years spent at that august institution, they’re ruined. To them, law isn’t a matter of justice, it’s a matter of social justice. They operate off of a sense of wounded ego and identity-based victim-hood. Principles always give way to expediency. And they have no professional decorum. Barring one rather insane guy who went to Hastings, I’ve never dealt with ruder, less honest, more unreliable people across the courtroom, fax machine, telephone, email, or desk than Harvard Law Grads. They’re like rats.
Yale grads are just as insanely ideological, but they at least acknowledge that the law creates boundaries and that professionalism exists, and they try to operate within those parameters. Harvard Law grads don’t.
Quite possible the best thing that could happen to American politics would be for Harvard Law to suffer some sort of catastrophic financial loss and close its doors permanently. It’s a factory for defective people who are given instant admission to America’s halls of power.
