In his first post-sentence interview, O.J. Simpson stated "ruff ruff ruff."

I should not take delight in the misfortune of others. However, in this case, I do. Good riddance.

What a dumb ass of a lawyer.

I don't like Yale as much as the next guy but you have to admit, he had an uphill climb with this one.

Rumpole, what is wrong with 1 black member of a court of all whites? Each appeal has at least 3 judges who in majority make the decision. So even if one of the 3 blacks who applied to the seat are not the brightest of the bunch who cares.

I would suggest that instead of taking in the negative about the 3 black judges why not google the names of the judges who applied and post a brief bio on them. Why not compare the bio of the 6 white's submitted and the 3 black's rejected. Do not tell us the race just post the bio's and we will pick 6 here on the blog.

After doing some research put up a poll on the blog and we will vote yea or nay for who is qualified. I suspect the Gov. already has the answer and is the reason he is pissed at the list submitted.

As a side bar note; I would like to see more black Judge's on the bench here in Miami. The black Judge's we have and had should be praised. I for one look forward to more qualified black attorney's seeking Judicial office.

Have we ever had a Asian Judge in Miami? Have we ever had a Mexican Judge?

4:03 that is a comment worthy of Rumpole. I wished I had thought of it, as I would have used it in the post. I laughed out loud.

miami loves migna said...

Rumpola- the Migna song says "she'll be on the bench by January 3..."

Query: When do the new Judges actually get sworn in?

Any truth to the rumor she has accepted an invitation to the presidential inaugural and is "the darling judge" of the new Obama administration?

Rumor has it that as the heir of the Hamilton Beech Scoville Fortune, Kenny Weisman has a trunk full of George Forman grills. He'll give you one if you ask him nicely.

Why the hell does everyone always rag on Kenny Weisman? In my dealings with him--both as an ASA and as a defense attorney--he has always been courteous, friendly and professional. He is a more than capable attorney as well.

Who's ragging on Kenny. They're just teasing him.

Kenneth Weisman said...

You are indeed accurate! I will be delighted to provide all of my REGB brethrin with a George Foreman Grill. I also have some limited quantities of "Mighty Putty" (Mighty Putty is a super powered epoxy that you can mold to any shape or surface). Offer ends midnight.

5:43- I agree!

"Killer O.J. Simpson's killer arrogance torpedoed his chance for a get-out-of-jail card.
The man who hacked two people to death (relax, a civil jury said he did) was offered a plea deal but rejected it. According to the prosecutor, "Mr. Simpson wanted something just short of a public apology" and rejected a deal that would have kept him in the prison for less time than his sentence -- 9 to 33 years."
Like we've said before, it was only a matter of time.

See? he's laughing. Everyone knows Kenny is not the heir to the Hamilton Beech Scovile fortune.

He made his money by drilling for oil in the edge of the Everglades, and then covered it up with a sugar plantation.

He's the original Lake Okechobee Hillbilly.
