11:00 a.m. — Updating a post from yesterday, the Cincinnati Enquirer still has no story about how sore loser and former First District Democrat Congressman Steve Driehaus had his suit against the Susan B. Anthony List tossed (HT COAST) by federal judge and Obama appointee Timothy Black.

For its part, COAST has properly congratulated Judge Black for having the integrity to recognize the serious error he made in his original August 2011 ruling. Though it may not have been crystal clear from yesterday’s post, I agree with that sentiment. But the judge still seems to believe that Driehaus had the facts — just not the Constitution — on his side, and seemed to emphasize SBAL’s right to say things that he believes weren’t true.

As my post yesterday showed, what SBAL said about Driehaus betraying his supposed pro-life beliefs during the 2010 was true, and it’s not arguable.

Mini-update: And while I’m at it, I should note that Driehaus’s attempt to go after COAST under Ohio’s misguided and now proven unconstitutional False Claims statute should also be tossed. The Buckeye State’s General Assembly should formally repeal that odious law as quickly as possible.

  1. Here’s to asking questions that shouldn’t even be thought of. Shep Smith’s OMG response that every person should be shouting outside the windows.
