This Just In

I was running low on Filthy Lies, and the muse strucke me when I thought about this sign, and decided to look and see if there were any photos from Kerry about the war, and look what I found!

Bad Lawyers

Tiger has a list of way to tell you have a bad lawyer. I have more. (Read his, then mine.)

  • He asks you if he should wear a suit to court.
  • When you ask him if he has ever been held in contempt, he has to think about it.
  • When he shows up at the courthouse the judge asks him, “is this pro se or pro bono?”
  • His business cards have a “50% off” coupon on the back.
  • His engagement letter is signed in crayon.
  • You ask what his bar number is and he gives the phone number for the local strip joint.
  • You ask him if he has a brief and he says, “No, boxers.”
  • He isn’t prepared to speak, because, after all, it is a hearing, not a speaking.
  • You are the security check at the courthouse and he asks you if there is any metal in crack.
  • He watches My Cousin Vinnie and then bills you two hours for “research”.
  • His idea of voir dire of a witness is to ask, “Oh yeah, well what makes you such an expert?”
  • He keeps his notes on a Big Chief tablet.
  • He has to drop your case to help a Nigerian Prince who just emailed him.

C’mon, people. There have to be more.

Race Pimp

If there is any question about what I mean when I say race pimp, I present to you: CNN.com – California education chief calls preschooler ‘stupid dirty girl’ – Jul 9, 2004

Democratic state Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally, who had scheduled a protest by civil rights organizations, canceled the demonstration after an apparent mix-up over the girl’s racial background.

Dymally was quoted in the San Jose Mercury News Thursday saying the child was “a little African-American girl. Would he (Riordan) have done that to a white girl?”

The girl is white, with blonde hair.

Dymally did not return telephone calls. His office issued a statement Wednesday calling Riordan’s remarks to the girl “outrageous and irresponsible,” then issued another statement Thursday saying, “To err is human; to forgive is divine.”

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a race pimp.

A Centaggrator

After having cleaned some dead blogs out of my news aggregator (the fine fine Feed on Feeds) I found that I have exactly 100 feeds. Nifty.

That don’t make me an RSS addict, does it?

Suborning Suicide

MEMRI reports this Palestinian bomber leader on the selection of suicide murderers:

A third issue is the human factor and I want to mention this in a nutshell. [The volunteer] cannot be a child of a single parent who provides for the family. This is why most volunteers for martyrdom operations are not married.

This is no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention.
