After Microsoft and Napster, Boies tackles Bush.

After Microsoft and Napster, Boies tackles Bush. Did anyone catch this? I noticed this morning on NBC that David Boies, who has represented IBM (versus the DOJ), the Yankees, the DOJ (versus Microsoft), and Napster, is now representing Al Gore. Wacky stuff.

Well, let's see: Al "the-black-goo-morphing-alien" Gore (1) invented the internet - which gave birth to Napster - and (2) re-invented government - where the DOJ lurks - and (3) has always had his eyes on Hillary - who wants every NY-er to think she loves the Yankees - and (4) speaks with all the vitality of paper plate - sorta like a Bill Gates comment imbedded deep in some Microsoft source code - and (5) really loves tv commercials - like all those new, hip IBM laptop ads --- so YES, it is no surprise that Boies is his man now!

...they probably play Yatzee together.

The question then becomes:

How much time does Boies have on his hands? Does he sleep? I was under the impression that in order to be successful as an attorney one had to spend at least a little bit of time on each case.

Hmm. Maybe if I'd graduated from college I would know these things.

I just hope Boies puts the smack down on Harris the way he says he will. he sounded awfully smug for someone with so few apparent options.
