Orly’s Cheatin’ Heart

By popular demand.It’s not news when yet another Orly Taitz birther lawsuit is dismissed. But in shitcanning the latest entertaining travesty, U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter of California notes some curious behavior on her part:

Taitz encouraged her supporters to contact this Court, both via letters and phone calls. It was improper and unethical for her as an attorney to encourage her supporters to attempt to influence this Court’s decision.

Before our California barristers rush to update their ethics complaints, however, stand by for the whopper:

Additionally, the Court has received several sworn affidavits that Taitz asked potential witnesses that she planned to call before this Court to perjure themselves. This Court is deeply concerned that Taitz may have suborned perjury through witnesses she intended to bring before this Court.

Can we get a whoa?

Orly’s a incredibly amusing combination of Wile E Coyote and Natasha.

Have you guys seen “Man v. Cartoon?”

“What Is Man vs. Cartoon?

“Watch as a team of the country’s brightest minds takes on the devices and techniques used by Wile E. Coyote in his vain attempts to snare his arch-enemy the Road Runner. See if expertise, years of training and the best equipment that money can buy will be enough to actually make Coyote’s flawed Acme Company machines work.”

I get this on the Dish.


She is so disbarred. It’s California, not Mississippi. She’s done.

can she be impeached?

or would that be, like, redundant?


Or the Ethics Commission will say “Stop” again!

@blogenfreude: You’d be surprised, my cupcake. After you get disbarred, you can reapply for reinstatement after a certain period of time. You basically have to run a major drug cartel or kill five people to get permanently disbarred, judging from the monthly update of disbarments in the California Bar Journal.


And even then you still get invited to the annual picnic.

@redmanlaw: Funny.

T/J but it’s only this dumb cow so who cares.

Just saw Valentino: The Last Emperor and it’s a blast. High faggotry like you’ve never seen. The 18th cent resurrected. The love story at the center is extraordinary. Hilarious, touching, offensive, ridiculous and engrossing. And OMFG the clothes! And they show you how they get made. Yes, gentlemen, there are tits. It’s a must see. Spoiler alert: nothing blows up. But there is Joan Collins.

@Benedick: Speaking of total gheyness, have you seen the (relatively new) documentary about Vogue yet? I go to movies once every 18 months, so it’s on my Netflix list.

@SanFranLefty: This isn’t gay, it’s Proust. But with a lot more money. It is the last hurrah of haute couture. We saw it on netflix. It’s really grand.

@Benedick: with that recommendation, it’s going to the top of the netflix list. right after seasons 2-3 of Mad Men.

SanFranLefty: The writeup from the disciplinary board is going to chock full of AWESOME.

@Benedick: @SanFranLefty: OK, off to netflix Valentino now. I saw “The September Issue” (Vogue doc) when I was in LA. I really enjoyed it, and I loved Grace Coddington, who’s actually much more interesting than Anna.

@Mistress Cynica: @SanFranLefty: Be sure to see the special features. They are almost more interesting than the movie. For example, the seamstresses working from sketch to gown. Hear the head seamstress on making plissé pleats in a bias cut and how it’s given structure. There were no machines in his workshop. Everything was done by hand. And his Major Domo arranging the houses. You will plotz.

Isn’t that potential jail time right there? I address Stinque Legal Council formally, by the way.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: My sideline guess is that since the witnesses never made it to the stand, they didn’t officially perjure themselves. Legally, no harm, no foul. Ethically, it’s on the record.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Conspiracy to commit perjury? I’m just talking out my ass, of course.

@mellbell: I’m no lawyer, but I did watch the first seven seasons of Law & Order: Classic Flavor–which means that I’m now qualified to practice in states south of Tennessee–and I do believe the correct term is subornation of perjury.
