Yes, I am a history nerd

Former Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor, who received a recess appointment to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year, is a member of the Federalist Society. So are the state's current AG, Troy King, and U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala.

Am I the only one who's amused that a bunch of conservative lawyers who believe in strict constructionism named their group after the original proponents of loose constructionism?

I read the B-ham News piece at work, whilst idling the day away; I thought it was quite well done.

Odd too that a group favoring states' rights (as long as it doesn't interfere with any other pressing political matters) would choose to name itself in such a fashion.

Here's another question: how many Federalist Society members are also Skull & Bones members? That'll get your conspiracy mojo going.
