Bending the Truth...

Over on Peach Pundit, Erick Erickson posted a review of the Benedict/Freeman interview with Randall Savage, and I have to say, it is really a positive review for Lauren, especially coming from the Republican side of the aisle. In the piece, Erickson questions whether Freeman called all lawyers "master manipulators" or just called Lauren that. Here's the quote, so you be the judge:

"She's a master manipulator. I mean she personifies what the stereotype of a lawyer really is. She takes that truth and bends it just a little bit or actually a whole lot to try to make her point."

If that's not calling lawyers names, I don't know what is.

And, I wonder, when Freeman talked about "bending the truth" was he referring to things like his statement when he said "in North Bibb where her residence is?" She once lived in the Ingleside area, never in North Bibb, and has sold her house. Is that twist what he meant by manipulation?

And who cares? Lauren has lived in Macon, by choice, her entire adult life. This is where she works, goes to church and volunteers in the the community.

Remember this number: 8.5. That's how many miles Lauren moved. She sold her house, and is a proud resident of South Bibb, and as a result, the people of 140 have the opportunity to have a representative who will actually work for them...for a change.

Our legislature needs more lawyers. The lawyers can help them avoid poorly constructed legislation that will be in and out of the courts for many months.
As for lawyers being "manipulators," that's not really an accurate discription. Lawyers just have better verbal skills than the general population, plus being quick to grasp the essence of a situation. That's what it takes to get past the LSAT and the bar exam.
