Yes, it is true. I have represented some terrible people. That’s my job as a defense attorney.
Clearly, then, I support criminal activity. I mean, there is no other explanation. It certainly can’t be that I support the United States Constitution, especially the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th amendments.
The Republican Governor’s Association knows this is true. They are running ads against a Democrat in South Carolina who fought against the powerful District Attorneys and Attorneys General, who protected citizens against abuses by the police, who made sure that everyone’s Constitutional rights were not violated as they went through the system, and even helped some innocent people fight against unfair accusations.
So what do the ads say? “He supported violent criminals instead of South Carolina.”
So yes, it’s true. I am an anti-American person who doesn’t deserve any respect, because I am in favor of crime. I am lower than the people I represent. How dare I demand that we obey the Constitution.
Let’s hope this ad backfires on the GOP, as it should.
But then again, this is South Carolina, where they elected Mark Sanford after he had used government money to support his mistress. Violating the Ten Commandments? No big deal. Supporting the United States Constitution? What a terrible person!
