Nice mind capture.

Earlier tonight on the Joy Behar show, Joy asked Nancy Grace why she constantly uses the term "Tot Mom" when referring to Casey Anthony. I don't recall Grace's exact words, but if she had been in the studio with Behar, I fear she would have ripped Joy's head right off, such was her Graceless rage.

To the "Tot Mom" point, never have I seen such visceral hate for an accused than that manifested by the former prosecutor, the graceless Grace.

Then it was Marcia Clark's turn, who's still on a quest to rehabilitate her reputation after completely failing to gauge the OJ jury.

Meanwhile, the current TV consensus has Anthony guilty by a mile and a half. So much so that it now appears Judge Belvin has actively joined the side of the prosecution - ruling today to allow in non-evidence for the sole purpose of inflaming the jury against the defendant.

I haven't eaten fiddlehead ferns in many years. What I remember is that the taste was strange, but pleasant.

A fruitless quest. She'll never live down that disastrous bungling.

Like what an interesting shade of silver-green?

Graceless Grace pretty much sums it up.

She loves being judge and jury and I don't doubt if they'd let her, executioner would be the part she really wants. When she interviews someone who's suspected or implicated in something, you can see the blood in her eye.

And none of that wussy lethal injection nonsense. This is a woman who would have fit right in with the old saw, "When the Indians capture you, if they don't like you, they torture you. If they really don't like you, they let the woman torture you.".

I don't doubt she could do a mean Sakakua.

Aside from playing fast and loose with the law as a one-time prosecutor in Atlanta, the Graceless Grace has since displayed her total lack of judgement on a national scale.

NYT: "She was wrong about the now debunked rape charges against the Duke lacrosse team, she was wrong about who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart. She taped a corrosive interview in 2006 with Melinda Duckett, whose 2-year-old son had gone missing, and Ms. Duckett killed herself the next day. Ms. Grace broadcast the interview anyway." Link

So what we're really talking about here is a piece of diseased garbage masquerading as a human being. But still instructive when one wants to understand the corrupt mind of a typical prosecutor.

I've never heard that expression before, "tot mom." Is it common or did Ms. Grace make it up.

Does it mean the same thing as "babies having babies?" If so, that could be an argument for leniency.

Almost Ali said...

..."tot mom." Is it common or did Ms. Grace make it up.

It's a Nancy Grace-less invention - intended to dehumanize the accused, Casey Anthony.

Also the kind of term one might hear around the typical, white-trash trailer park.

I have some similar ferns. They have nice manners and play well with others.

They needed somebody to run the show at bear baitings and gladiatorial games, too.

Kroger has a diploma and photo frame for sale, with sample diploma and photo pic .

The question is what's the signature name on the left.

I like the perfect blend of sport and cruiser in the Harley-Davidson V-Rod. I like the fact that they are built in Kansas City by fellow Missourians. I don't like that the brand name alone makes this beast the same price as a small car.

Beautiful picture.

But that pretty much describes every lawyer you are ever gonna meet so what's the big deal?

ScottM: check out a Victory Hammer. Great looks and made-in-America performance but you can pick up a used one at a reasonable price.

@Calypso

I was checking out the Yamaha Striker and the Raider in the showroom today. I'm not sure about an aluminum frame on such a big cruiser but the liquid-cooled feature is interesting. Roughly the same cost though.
