Awesome Quote and a new word - Fascinatingly Repugnant
"We, as criminal defense lawyers, are forced to deal with some of the lowest people on earth, people who have no sense of right and wrong, people who will lie in court to get what they want, people who do not care who gets hurt in the process. It is our job – our sworn duty – as criminal defense lawyers, to protect our clients from those people."
Mrs. Tripper came up with an excellent descriptor that was originally applied to matchmaker/ singles ads and reality TV: Fascinatingly Repugnant. It describes why we all have that guilty attraction to watching whatever cultural train wreck is going on at the moment. It applies to a few clients, too.
