ASTROTURF AND TARTARS

Check out DOM's blog which has a link to John Grisham's NY Times Op Ed piece on wrongful convictions. 
Get that? Rumpole to Markus to Grisham. Sort of like Tinker to Evers  to Chance. Don't know what that is? Ask Judge Milt Hirsch at the start of his calendar tomorrow. 

The Fourth DCA has a new courthouse. There will be a tour on Monday March 26, 2018 given by the Dade County Bar Association. Click here. We have it on special, inside authority, those who sign up for the tour will be given limited access to see the new, special PACA robot, who can write "Per Curiam Affirmed" over eight thousand times an hour. 

We can understand Ukrainians or Jews hacking the election. But Tatars? Really? Tatars!  Now he's gone too darn far. 

Meanwhile, remember when George blamed Astroturf on the Jews?

March 12, 1956, was a day of shame for the United States Constitution. On that date, Sen. Walter George rose on the Senate floor to read what became known as the “Southern Manifesto” (formally entitled “Declaration of Constitutional Principles”) on behalf of 19 senators and 77 representatives. Excerpts follow:

"The unwarranted decision of the Supreme Court in the public school cases [i.e., Brown v. Topeka Board of Education, etc.] is now bearing the fruit always produced when men substitute power for established law.

"We regard the decision of the Supreme Court in the school cases as a clear abuse of judicial power. It climaxes a trend in the Federal Judiciary undertaking to legislate, in derogation of the authority of Congress, and to encroach upon the reserved rights of the States and the people. The original Constitution does not mention education. Neither does the Fourteenth Amendment nor any other amendment.

"Though there has been no constitutional amendment or act of Congress changing this established legal principle [i.e., “separate but equal”] almost a century old, the Supreme Court of the United States, with no legal basis for such action, undertook to exercise their naked judicial power and substituted their personal political and social ideas for the established law of the land.

“We commend the motives of those States which have declared the intention to resist forced integration by any lawful means. ... We pledge ourselves to use all lawful means to bring about a reversal of this decision which is contrary to the Constitution and to prevent the use of force in its implementation."

After Sen. George finished reading, Sen. Strom Thurmond rose to speak in support of the Manifesto. According to Thurmond, “the people and the States must find ways and means of preserving segregation in the schools. Each attempt to break down segregation must be fought with every legal weapon at our disposal.”

Not all southern legislators embraced the Manifesto. Sen. Albert Gore of Tennessee told Thurmond that it was “the most unvarnished piece of demagoguery [he] had ever encountered.” And liberal senators from the north – Wayne Morse of Oregon, Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota – offered passionate rebuttals. Sen. Richard Neuberger of Oregon observed:

“We live in a world most of whose people are of a different color than white. What are they thinking when members of the highest American parliamentary body announce themselves as against judicial decisions granting equality to colored people in America? How fares the Soviet Union in the propaganda war as a result of these developments?”

It was not until 1969 when U.S. District Court Judge C. Clyde Atkins declared Miami's Public Schools segregation was illegal

Hey Blonde PD,

Have some self-respect. Why "blonde," rather than, say, hard-working, dedicated, inspired, ambitious, well-educated, trial-monster. Or you could really commit to the "blonde" thing: buxom, wasp-waisted, seductive, emotionally fragile, irrational, lookin' for love.

It's never too late to get a grip.
