#1 Ayliff was mostly providing foundational testimony regarding the basic functions of a tax-preparation company.

Um, they prepare tax returns?

#2 Clown cars, where are the clown cars? If this is an accurate depiction the Prosecution is breathtakingly inept.

#3 Mueller working on a legacy of stupid rather than malicious?

#4 Did the competent, and higher ranked, lawyers decide that this case was so political that they punted it to the Junior Varsity Squad? "Look, Private, charge that machinegun nest! Take one for the Team!"

#5 This isn't the first investigation that Mueller has royally fucked up.

The Anthrax investigation after 9-11 is a story of stupidity and incompetence that rivals any government investigation to date and it was led by Mueller.

#6 Smart people tend to make up their own minds. When you want 'reliable' then you are stuck with stupid.

#7 As I said yesterday Mueller wants nothing to do with this turd of a case. He's not the one going to take the flack for the botching. He's hoping to come out of this with his skin intact.

#8 Here's hoping Judge Ellis draws his inspiration from the likes of Bradshaw v. Unity Marine.

In case you don't have time:

Before proceeding further, the Court notes that this case involves two extremely likable lawyers, who have together delivered some of the most amateurish pleadings ever to cross the hallowed causeway into Galveston, an effort which leads the Court to surmise but one plausible explanation. Both attorneys have obviously entered into a secret pactcomplete with hats, handshakes and cryptic wordsto draft their pleadings entirely in crayon on the back sides of gravy-stained paper place mats, in the hope that the Court would be so charmed by their child-like efforts that their utter dearth of legal authorities in their briefing would go unnoticed. Whatever actually occurred, the Court is now faced with the daunting task of deciphering their submissions. With Big Chief tablet readied, thick black pencil in hand, and a devil-may-care laugh in the face of death, life on the razor's edge sense of exhilaration, the Court begins.
