I Absolutely Loathe Alan Dershowitz

Vous êtes de la merde dans un bas de soie !

Napoleon on the French diplomat Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord

I thought you should read it in the original French, for once.  

As far as I'm concerned,  Alan Dershowitz is a retired Harvard Law prof.  celebrity ambulance chaser, get-offer of celebrity murderers and likely murderers, torture advocate, pseudo-liberal advocate of pretty much anything that enhances the ability of the rich and super rich to dominate and swamp democracy  - and those are some of his more attractive attributes - is as good an example of what Napoleon said as anyone alive today in the United States.   That he is getting himself all over the right-wing media by claiming that Donald Trump not only wasn't guilty of but, apparently, can't be guilty of obstruction of justice because he can fire people in the Department of Justice AND THAT HE CAN PARDON THE GUILTY doesn't surprise me.  

Alan Dershowitz, so far as I'm concerned, is about as credible as that other media-figure-lawyer Geraldo Rivera.  He is crud. 


  1. Dershowitz is useless, as are all discussions about whether or not what Trump did was illegal.

    The raging argument is whether or not the POTUS can be tried for criminal actions. Such a trial would certainly establish grounds for "high crimes and misdemeanors," but even that wouldn't force the House to impeach, or the Senate to expel. And who would bring the charges? The DOJ? Who else has jurisdiction over D.C.?

    Impeachment is a political process. It won't happen so long as the Congress is in the hands of the GOP, and may not happen even if it changes hands in 2018. But Dershowitz is still full of blue mud, as my grandmother used to say.

    1. My father said "full of soup". I like "blue mud" though. I'll definitely use it.
