Speaking of Robert Stacy and company; the inestimable Mr. McCain has been handed a win in his legal case, in which he (and numerous other high-profile bloggers) have been sued for defamation by convicted perjurer and peripatetic asshole Brett Kimberlin. Kudos and congratulations to Mr. McCain on this event, and (of course) to his co-defendants as well.
And while we’re on the topic – why the hell is it that perjuring assholes like Kimberlin feel so free to sue? Mostly for one reason; if they lose, they are only out their own expenses. (Since Kimberlin apparently represented himself, proving once more the maxim that anyone who represents himself in a trial has a moron for a client, he apparently isn’t even out that much.)
If there is a better argument for a loser-pays tort reform, I don’t know what it is. Liar and asshole Kimberlin, having lost miserably, should now be liable for the legal expenses of the defendants. That, if nothing else, would make assholes think twice before filing stupid, frivolous lawsuits.
Speaking of assholes, in New York City a cowardly, sniveling young punk sucker-punched a 72-year old man and ran off, in another disgusting example of the “knockout game.” If there were any justice, this cowardly little shit would be put in a ring and left at the mercy of an MMA fighter for ten or fifteen minutes.
And on that note, we return you to your Thursday, already in progress.
