After the announcement of Edwards as Kerry’s running mate, it only took a nanosecond for the “ewwww, he’s a trial lawyer” comments to start. As if just being a politician weren’t bad enough.
Jumping on Edwards’ case because he’s inexperienced is one thing, but dredging up a worn out stereotype is just lazy namecalling. Or, as Monsieur Hill says: Yeah, but would you vote for Perry Mason?
So, here’s my question: If you could only vote for a fictional lawyer for President, whom would you choose? (Bonus points for the coolest dream team Prez/Veep combo)
I know who Grandpa Simpson wants: Maaaaaatlock!
