It’s amazing. Everything Barack does now as a Senator brings out the Constitutional Lawyer Brigade (not a actual attorney among them) to SCREAM FROM EVERY THREAD – Obama is Destroying the Country I Love and Ending Democracy as We Know It.
It’s not that the CLB doesn’t sounds credible at times. They are good at pulling quotes from Appellate or Supreme Court decisions that kind of sorta have something to do with the topic they are discussing, but beyond that, all they have is illogical conclusions based on very unlawerly hyperbole.
I am not an attorney, and it drives me up a wall. I I were an attorney, I would be much less constrained than the ones who frequent these pages have been. I would expect all the lawyers by now to be like HusseinTenaX and libgirl and the precious few others who have gone out of their way to correct the CLB in their paranoid rantings about the Constitution and The End of Life as We Know It.
We’ve all seen them, so no need to call out the guilty on this one.
I just have one questions for all the lawyers on TPM. Are you as sick of seeing the law treated this way as I am? I mean, if it were a bunch of fools talking about making or writing films who clearly had no idea what they were talking about, I would be busting that shit non-stop.
If I get frustrated by how obviously uninformed they are about the American jurisprudence process, how fucking irritating is it to you guys? My head would be exploding by now if I were an attorney.
