Abramoff hires idiot lawyer
Lobbyist Jack Abramoff, now serving 6 years in a minimum-security federal prison on a fraud conviction, has decided to defend himself in lawsuits brought by two Indian tribes that were formerly his clients. Some say he's taking this step to get out of prison chores.
Yet surely Abramoff knows the old adage that "He who represents himself has a fool for a client and an idiot for a lawyer." Maybe he still think his Indian opponents are "morons, stupid idiots ... troglodytes, losers."
