chasing ambulances (and unattainable nominations)

Just watched 60 Minutes while chomping on Sunday dinner, and the show gave an extended profile to Democratic hopeful John Edwards. Cheris thought he was creepy, but he really didn’t bother me at all… until it came up that one of the “great successes” of his legal career was winning a lawsuit with a settlement of $25 million. A personal injury lawsuit.

What is this guy thinking? Surely every American by now must understand what personal injury attorneys are all about: exploiting the legal system, abusing it callously to bleed every penny out of a defendant at all costs.

And there are people who want someone like that in the White House?!? Boggles the mind.

Mr. Mulligan will no doubt be pleased to see me ragging on Democratic candidates.

got something to say about that?
