    If only we could have politics without politics, all of our problems would be solved!

    Ideology is a very real thing and large parts of the media-pundit industrial complex are dedicated to pretending that there is no such thing as ideology and cab drivers and diner goers across America are really interested in entitlement reform and lowering the corporate tax rate.

    But ideology does exist and the evidence shows the parties and their bases are growing further apart.Report

    Unless my opponent insists otherwise, and some do, I am generally cordial with opposing counsel outside the courtroom. Not only is that the right way to behave, a small but real consideration, but things go a lot smoother that way. Once in front of the judge or jury, however, each of us throws punches, hard but, generally, above the belt. This should surprise exactly nobody, though clients are sometimes confused.
    I never thought politics was any different.Report
