What’s that old saying about stones and glass houses? I think it goes ‘if you swim in a cesspool don’t complain about someone else’s swamp’.
Politicians turn melancholy when one of them gets caught. You can hear them sigh, -but for the grace of God, it could have been me. The Speaker of the House, third in line for the Presidency, is beyond melancholy. She is calling the entire Republican party “is a criminal conspiracy”. Does she not know that Rangel is a Democrat?
When there is no defense, go on offense. That’s taught in Litigation 101. If your client is guilty, attack the witnesses. Perhaps the witness that saw your client pump 5 bullets into the victim once cheated on his wife. Who is going to believe a man like that?
Hillary took the same Litigation class. A vast right-wing conspiracy served as the straw man, correction – straw woman, in that case.
