Ann Althouse always has the capacity to completely and utterly astound me. There is always another layer of just plain nuts.
Althouse has an answer:
Perhaps there is a fear that he will communicate in code by blinking.
And upon being informed that this is, in fact, completely absurd, she becomes characteristically petulant:
I'm not saying Padilla deserves to be treated the way he has over the years, but I am responding to the assertion that there is absolutely no conceivable reason for blindfolding him. Plainly, I have refuted that.
Plainly. She was blinking when she typed it.
I fear there is not snark enough in all the world for Althouse.
UPDATE: Altmouse weighs in.
