(no subject)

You know, I thought I rather dislike lawyers as a class, I've seen them do a whole lot of bad, and not much good. But it turns out I'm a rank amateur. This guy has me beat in spades.
"Barack Obama and a Democratic ascendency means a more complicated tax code (more lobbying and tax work), more regulation (more lobbying and litigation) and more private causes of action and less tort reform (more litigation). Even though this is bad for most of Big Law’s clients, it translates into more billable hours, more revenue and more profits per partner."
I'm not sure he's right about how good the democrats are for lawyers, but that is one heck of a rant.
