Seeing Hypocrites and Namin’ Names

I can understand that some people don’t like lawsuits. Come to think about it, only a dang fool likes lawsuits. Litigation is stressful and expensive. Anyone who files lawsuits for fun is in need of medication, counseling, electric shock therapy, or an appropriate combination of the above.

Then, there are people who file lawsuits but don’t think other people should file lawsuits. These people are called HYPOCRITES. Here is an article that identifies some of the hypocrites.

My favorite hypocrite is Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA). He is all in favor of limiting the rights of victims of medical malpractice. He had a different view when he testified on behalf of his wife, a plaintiff in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Of course, that case was different: the victim was a member of his family, and she was really hurt. You know, a real bad sore back, not those wimpy complaints of brain injury, paralysis, or amputated limbs. I mean, she had trouble going out on the campaign trail with him!

Makes you want to shed a tear, doesn’t it? (I’m not talking about his wife’s injury. I’m talking about the fact that this man is a U.S. Senator.)
