It would appear that blogger Juan Cole, the subject of a lawsuit threat and a previous post here, has his own way with litigious threats (hat tip to Mickey Kaus). Still, I don't feel bad for defending his rights, even if he chooses to engage in the same sad behavior. Crying "Lawsuit!" when someone strikes a sore spot may bring some momentary happiness, but it's no way to run a free society. Speaking of lawyers, you may not realize how beholden the Democratic Party is to trial lawyers, but you should be. More on this topic later.
