Lawyers, Judges and Useless Law Degrees – Obama Administration Flunks American Law

A couple of days ago  you may not have seen the flying monkey who replaced Carney as he explained why one small bit of verbiage in Pelosi’s Poorly Proofread Poultice for the Nation’s health is screwed up. (One wonders how much more is fouled up.) Apparently, what Nancy and the phantom drafters really meant to say …oh, does It [really] matter? (Herewith quoting Mrs. Clinton with emphasis added.) In Obamacare some drafter referenced the state exchanges when they should have said (in order to preserve absolute power over one-sixth of the economy) “the fed.” SCOTUS notices this sort of thing.

So the new flying monkey tells us it shouldn’t matter because …even in the absence of a “fancy law degree” anyone should be able to see what the drafters (more flying monkeys?) actually intended. Which … is exactly what the monkeys did not write.

Although I possess one of those (purportedly) fancy (and obtained with great difficulty) law degrees, the F. Monkey’s point was lost on me. I remember the pain of legal research and writing class during Law 101. I verged on tearing my hair several times. When it was finished my “take away” from research and writing was that most judges, lawyers, law clerks, court clerks, courtroom janitors and bailiffs looked with great disfavor on sloppy writing. Seems like we’re flailing away at the monstrously obvious. Right? I guess Nancy and the other legislating monkeys (including the Main Monkey who also claims great and unassailable constitutional scholar hood) flunked Legal Writing class.

Or maybe they got a free pass in the name of fairness, slavery reparation and good ole’ affirmative action.

We should be serious. What do a few words…short words, at that… really matter. It seems much less important than Benghazi…which we’ve been assured with great emphasis, doesn’t matter.

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
