Glenn Reynolds getting openly mocked at Reason.

It took forever, but I don't think anyone -- except maybe Ann Althouse and the RedStaters -- buys the Putz-as-libertarian schtick anymore.

Where in the Constitution, pray tell, do we find the authority for such crusades? Or for the national restrictions on abortion supported by the fifth signatory, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council? Or for the national regulation of broadcast speech pushed by the seventh guy on the list, Brent Bozell of the Parents Television Council? I do not expect conservative constitutionalists to be libertarians, but is it asking too much to expect them to be constitutionalists?
