I wonder why?
And in case you missed it, then the next day:
Anyway, Lord Damp Nut’s assorted legal gambits have been falling down in ways that the Marx Brothers would have been ashamed to write, with Prznint Stupid’s Stupidest Lawyer™ Rudy Giuliani and David Bossie BOTH leading it.
Lawsuits in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania all imploded yesterday when the crack team asserted massive vote fraud with details to be submitted into evidence, you know, later, when they are found.
And the current case in Pennsylvania, which seeks to stop that state from certifying its results, looks promising for high comedy. Last week, each law firm that took it up ran screaming into the night. You know that old comedy bit where the Sargent asks for a volunteer for a suicide mission and everyone steps back except for one hapless dolt?
Our pals at Electoral-Vote set the scene:
Last week, the firm Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur jumped ship and were replaced by two lawyers from Texas, John Scott and Douglas Hughes, and one from Philadelphia, Linda Kerns. Well, on Monday, Scott, Hughes, and Kerns all withdrew, from the case, and were replaced by Harrisburg-based lawyer and conservative talk radio host Marc Scaringi. Scaringi asked for more time to prep for the hearing, which is scheduled for today. The Judge was having none of that, and said that Scaringi’s decision to wait until 7:40 p.m. Monday to join the case is his problem, and not the court’s.
I imagine the scene ends for Scaringi as Shakespeare wrote,
“Exit, pursued by a bear.”
Let’s keep an eye on this one, it could be our afternoon stupid.
