Spambot's got the new Joe Ricketts talking-point and is running with it, rushing ancient news subject Rev. Wright back up to the fore as his Rightie masters want him to.

Oddly, your boy Mittens doesn't even support this race-baiting sh-t, Spambot, so one has to wonder why you're doing it? A little pandering of your own, maybe?:)

Edwards' lawyers hoped the case would rest in part on Judge Catherine Eagles' interpretation of the word "the."

John Edwards Defense Dealt a Blow By Judge's Ruling

May 16, 2012

John Edwards rested his case today, but his defense was dealt a blow when the federal judge said she will set a lower bar than Edwards' legal team had sought for convicting the former presidential candidate of violating the federal campaign finance law.

The judge's decision about how she will instruct the jury came just hours after Edwards' lawyers ended their case...

Edwards' lawyers hoped the case would rest in part on Judge Catherine Eagles' interpretation of the word "the."

The statute governing illegal receipt of campaign contributions "means any gift, subscription, loan, advance, or deposit of money... for the purpose of influencing any election for federal office."

The words "the purpose" suggests that in order for a conviction, the sole reason for the money would have to be to finance a presidential campaign.

Edwards' legal team argued that his main reason for hiding his mistress was to keep her secret from his wife, Elizabeth, who was dying of breast cancer.

The judge, however, decided the government will not have to prove that sole and only purpose of the hush money was to influence the election. It could be to keep it from his wife and to influence his political chances.

Have a life long friend that is a Trial Lawyer....I know sorry.

He jokes about his profession calling himself and his colleges:

"Licensed Liars"

The rest of us are just liars....Attorneys have a license to do so.

While I admit I am far from perfect, however I still deeply resent being compared to lawyers, and in fact by comparing me to lawyers I believe you have unfairly crossed the line and also gone far below any standards of common decency.

Please immediately apologize.
