Trial Lawyers, pt 2

As an update to my earlier post, here's a bit of a transcript of Tucker Carlson being the subhuman creature he reveals himself to be by repeatedly referring to the "jacuzzi cases" he contends made Edwards rich. From the New Year's Eve 2002 edition of Crossfire, this exchange between Carlson and Democratic strategist Bob Shrum:

CARLSON: Bob, I want you to take a look at a -- actually, no, I just want to get right to the question because we're short on time.

One of the leading candidates among the Democrats 2004, John Edwards. Smart guy, decent guy, articulate guy, doesn't have the resume in the current environment, but in politics four years before that he was a personal injury lawyer specializing in Jacuzzi cases. That's not going to cut it in this environment, is it?

SHRUM: Well, first of all, he never did a case like that. And if you, by Jacuzzi, mean that a young woman who had her baby -- who had her insides sucked out by a defective pool drain who has to for the rest of her life receive 24-hour a day care, and that he took that case and won that case if that's what you're referring to, I think people in this country would like that.

CARLSON: And so you're saying so that is -- just to make sure I understand you -- that is the resume that he's going to run on as the commander-in-chief in 2004.

SHRUM: No, of course not. No, I just have to correct the outrageous misstatement that you just made.

First of all, he hasn't decided whether he's running or not, No. 1. No. 2, the fact that he went out and defended -- didn't do class action cases -- defended very, very powerless people against very powerful interests for 20 years...

CARLSON: And made millions.

SHRUM: ...is a lot better qualification than somebody handing you a baseball team for almost no money called the Texas Rangers and then your name is George W. Bush and you get rich.
