Every once in awhile it happens that a bunch of people start to appreciate something, or someone, that was sitting under their noses the whole time. It seems that this week that someone or something is First Amendment lawyer Marc Randazza.
I’ve written before about Marc Randazza, since he is my lawyer in the Rakofsky matter. While I don’t always share his political views, and wouldn’t necessarily want him to use his profanity around my kids, I have nothing but the highest praise for his defense of the First Amendment. That’s why I hired him.
This is someone that clearly believes that the answer to speech with which we disagree is more speech. And that was his logic in defending in a piece on CNN…wait for it…. Rush Limbaugh for his “slut” comments.
And so, without further ado, a Marc Randazza Round-Up! Because I love alliteration. And he earned it. Here are some of the finer pieces that have spilt across keyboards lately regarding Marc Randazza:
