My spokesmodel doesn't understand all this furor about fingers in chili.
Actually, this case is a good sign. A decade ago, false suers and false accusers had total control of the system. Every case, no matter how absurd the claim or how obvious the claimant's bad motives, was treated seriously and had a good chance of success. Things have definitely changed. Suer Ayala is in jail; other famous false accusers in recent months have failed.
Judges do read the newspapers. Congress and public opinion do make a difference, even if it's frustratingly slow. What I don't understand is the alleged conservatives and alleged Republicans who condemn 'immoderate' speech on this subject.
Tyrants, whether in the Kremlin or in our courtrooms, don't hear subtlety.
A bit later: It occurs to me that the components of this post could be reassembled in a different order to generate a comment about the Bolton matter. The same alleged Republicans who disdain 'immoderate speech' about judges also disdain Bolton's tough approach to tyrants, and those same alleged Republicans are perfectly willing to give credence to obviously false and absurd accusations against Bolton.
