Memo to Kerik: get a new lawyer

Joe Topocina, Bernie Kerik's lawyer, was on "Imus" just now. He delivered an extraordinarily unpersuasive brief on behalf of his client. The essence of his defense was that Kerik has proved himself an authentic American hero, so to tar him now is unfair.

If my life were hanging in the balance and I had the resources Kerik appears to have, Mr. Topocina would not be my choice.

1. Not to mention Joe's slick hairdo...
...never trust a man who still uses Vitalis.

5. I still use Vitalis, does that make me evil?
Funny I alway thought it was the black cats at midnight that did that. Oh well, to quote Georgie's Father in "High School Madness", "If I can get some work out of that son of mine, I should have the shelter finished by Election Day".

2. "Authentic American Hero"?
Isn't that the name of a cheap clothing line they sell at Target?

Rudi must have supplied Topocina for free...

4. "Unfair" is mincing words. What Kerik did is unlawful and illegal.
It may be "unfair" that he is subject to prosecution and penalty as the rest of the unannointed, but that subjective assessment is irrelevant. "Unfair" won't give you a free pass.

Is that the best legal argument he can come up with?
