Who knew that part of Megyn Kelly's job as a "non-opinion" Fox News host included playing defense attorney for Chris Christie? Funny how she forgot to mention that when she talked about her prime time role at Fox.
Think she gets paid extra for this service? Or is it just part of the job at Fox News?
That’s the biggest part of why I wanna see her record as a litigator- Because while I’m convinced she has a poor record as a lawyer, as a litigator, she could have done great had they pulled her out every time they drew a sexist judge. She just memorizes the argument the real lawyers made, and recites it in case them freshly shaven and lotioned gams aren’t holding the judge’s undivided attention.
Don’t laugh- I’ve seen comely lady lawyers that do exactly that when I visit the courthouse, and I’m pretty sure they only lose when the judge is a hetero woman. Because God knows they have a mediocre knowledge of law at best, and no ability to debate or show courtroom tactics when sexism can’t help them. And most of them could still wipe the floor with the Fox News Legs.
They’ve tried ignoring the story completely. Didn’t work because more revelations keep emerging.
They’ve tried amping up their Benghazi reruns. Didn’t work because there hasn’t been any real news in that story since fall 2012, and since the only breakthrough we’ve had recently was the New York Times expose that punctured their narrative. And because the Benghazi consulate wasn’t attacked by Hillary Clinton and President Obama. The Christie scandal has to do with actions taken directly by his staff on his behalf.
Now they’re trying to attack the accusers. So the Hoboken mayor, who was clearly intimidated by Christie’s machine, now feels like she can come forward and say what’s been on her mind privately. What does Fox News do? Immediately, viciously attack her. All they have in response is a Christie staff member denying the charge, and their only argument is to say that the Christie person must be telling the truth and that the Hoboken mayor is lying. Which ignores the more likely scenario – that the Hoboken mayor is telling the truth, as shown in her own contemporaneous journal entries, and that the Christie staffer is practically daring the mayor to prove her case.
The problem Christie is facing now is pretty severe. He has enemies on both sides of the aisle, and they’re all enjoying watching the carnage. Even more damaging is that this scandal was self-inflicted. Nobody forced the Christie people to play these games, and nobody forced them to memorialize them in gloating emails. So now the story is out and the Christie people are scrambling to play defense – particularly to see if there’s any way to salvage his credibility before 2016. (Which is still possible – Richard Nixon pulled this trick off multiple times in his career) But Christie must now face a raft of Democrats who resent the bullying he has inflicted on them over the past several years. And he must face a raft of hard right wing pols and pundits who resent his “bear hug” with President Obama during Sandy. (Rush Limbaugh showed obvious glee when this scandal broke, particularly after he had castigated Christie for even allowing President Obama to come to New Jersey over Sandy. Limbaugh presented an alternative universe picture where all the other GOP pols shunned the President and either refused aid or demanded that they get the aid without a Presidential visit. So Limbaugh is probably getting more enjoyment than from watching Christie squirm than anyone else.)
NOTE TO AILES LEGS
Make sure those gams are shining. The King wants to see them.

were you implying she got the $100 bonus for a sloppy yawn or did she do it “pro-bono” as Lawyers often do?!
