In the recent debate between the Republican candidates for Wisconsin attorney general, candidate J.B. Van Hollen responded to an interruption by his opponent, Paul Bucher, with the following: “Will you ever listen? That's why you suck, Paul, because you only listen to people who agree with you.” You suck? This man is running for attorney general, the state’s top prosecutor. So, will he tell defense attorneys, “Hey, your evidence sucks,” if he’s elected? Lawyers graduate with essentially doctorate degrees, they have to pass several standardized tests, and learn lots of Latin terms. After all that, the best rebuff to a debate opponent that he can come up with is “you suck”?
By the way, don’t these two look like a couple of weenies?
