David Bernstein tallies the law professors who are allied with Republican candidates. Giuliani, Romney, and Thompson all boast impressive line-ups — especially Thompson.
And Ramesh Ponnuru tallies the support the candidates are getting from righty commentators, noting Giuliani’s disproportionately large fanbase. (Phil and Jennifer are mentioned.) Ramesh warns that rooting for a candidate can color a pundit’s judgment. On a related note, I just realized that I’ve missed Maryland’s deadline for changing my party registration — because there haven’t been any important Republican contests around here in the past couple of cycles, I’m registered as a Democrat — and therefore I won’t be voting in the Republican primary. Obviously, this makes me an entirely clear-eyed and unbiased observer.
