Lawyers. Oh, for... G'uh
I had thought to blog about the imbecilc lawyers but Ken Parish has done very well. So has ABCWatch.
See, these lawyers are the kind of lawyers who cannot conceive that Saddam is, deep down at the very root of his being, a crime against humanity. Because he is as he does. He does violence. He is violent. He begets violence through his kids. But the lawyers cannot fathom that a regime of international activity exists in which Saddam can be challenged straight up to give up his shit or fuck off. Cannot put it any plainer than that. But it is too plain for the lawyers.
Human rightey lawyers are all the worst parts of Clarence Darrow and Lord Denning, you know? I have trouble finding folks I respect in that game of law. I caught a show on BBCWorld on the weekend about Carla del Ponte, former associate to Fabulous Falcone, Mafiabusting magistrate in Italy. She is tenancious and has an eye on real atrocities and real atrocious folks to go after. But she is big picture slapdash, so her detractors say.
Would I want her doing my .08 case in Moore Park, or the speeding fine bonanza that is the Tulla freeway?
No. I do not think so.
