Today's episode features a little more about Corey Robin, including the argument addressed on the show that criticisms of Clarence Thomas's competence are a racist echo of similar claims made against Thurgood Marshall. Find out why Andrew made the mistake he did in Episode 242, and also why Andrew still stands behind his answer to that question.
We begin with Robin, winding our way from his blog posts to the jurisprudence of two of Andrew's heroes, Laurence Tribe and Ronald Dworkin! Ultimately, you'll learn why Andrew continues to defend the proposition that attacks on Thomas's competence are not inherently racist.
After that, it's time for some behind-the-scenes news about Attorney General nominee William Barr just in time for his confirmation hearings. What company does he keep when it comes to interpreting the Founding Fathers? Listen and find out! (Hint: this isn't good.)
Finally, it's time for the answer to Thomas Takes The Bar Exam #108 regarding real property. As always, remember to follow our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and like our Facebook Page so that you too can play along with #TTTBE!
