This is uncharacteristic of me in respects but I’ll share that we’re grinning large tonight as the cyber gods smiled upon us today. Nowdy and I have been out a good bit of late with the day jobs and family responsibilities but just like in Poltergeist we’re baaack.
It was good to meet Oyster today and to see AROD still as defiant as ever. Also I’d like to give a shout out to our devoted readers at Blue Williams. Your free tax advice stinks guys but would be crooks in Gucci suits get some of the best defense lawyers money can buy in the greater NOLA area.
Finally I heard today from two sources that Porteous hiring Professor Turley is the brainchild of Senator Orrin Hatch. John Breaux was pushing Porteous for the Dems in the Senate so all that was needed to slide Judge Gabby T pOrteous on the bench was Hatch, whom I’m told was flown to New Orleans to cement the deal. Back in those days the late Wendell Gauthier, a trial lawyer extraordinaire was the man who could grease all the skids that way so his name naturally came up in the same conversation. The point to this diatribe is that both Hatch and Breaux knew Judge Gabby T pOrteous was a womanizing, drunken gambling addict yet still gave him the lifetime appointment despite it. There is no telling what shit house deal was cut to make it final. Today former Senator John Breaux has teamed up with former Mississippi Senator Trent Lott doing the lobbying thang. Hatch, remains in the Senate evidently looking to cover his ass on the Porteous debacle.
I’d like to welcome our new visitors, especially those coming from Professor Turley’s blog and via referral from the good folks at Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub who linked our Gabby T pOrteous coverage.
We have another episode of Magnum JD on tap for this weekend so stay tuned.
