    The late cartoon was cremated, its ashes thrown to the whispering winds, whence it haunts lawyers everywhere!

    AND limit the time in office to 6 years total over ones life time with one third being elected every 2 years and no pension. Office holders would never have to be in continuous campaign mode and could get about the business we elected them to do.

    Sure wish there would be a Constitutional Amendment to limit the terms of Supreme Court judges. Only problem is that there would be flip-flop chaos with issues like abortion or stem cell research. The balance of power would be a partisan joke.

    I’m guessing you’ve never actually read the play in question…Henry VI (Part 2), by the way.

    It’s ludicrous how many people use that quote totally out of context.

    Actually, if you read the play, the line is most definitely meant as a joke about lawyers.

    Dick the Butcher isn’t making that statement as an encouragement to Cade who prattles on about revolution, that is, he is not trying to imply that lawyers were the saviors of sane society and the only impediment to the crass upstarts in Cade’s gang. He is making fun of Cade’s boasting and puffery, and at the same time poking fun at lawyers. It’s been a popular joke for hundreds of years.
