While there are many important points to consider in today's The Daily Times article about the rally for Judge Young, I can't get past my embarrassment of hearing our county mayor talk about "testicular fortitude."

I think that he was talking about us, but whatever he was saying is lost on me because all I can think is..."he did NOT just say 'testicular fortitude.'"

Topics:

When you have friends like these....

...who needs enemies?
Mayor Cunningham has made himself look the fool. Unprofessional doesn't even come close to describing his inappropriate comments. When you read his quotes you have to wonder how he ever graduated from law school much less worked in the U.S. Attorneys office. He would have done a bigger favor to Judge Young by keeping his mouth shut.

Blog attacks

You know the whole thing kind makes me want to throw up. Here are these fat cats standing there dogging out a young single mother with no one there to defend her.
"If your illegal, your illegal" states Cunningham. Well if you are legal you are legal also applies.
How frigging thick skulled can these people be about this issue. We've all but tried to cram the documents up their .... to get them to see the truth. But I see the truth means very little to some people.
How ignorant all this makes Blount County look to the rest of the country.

a rooster that is guaranteed to challenge any man's "testicular fortitude"!

And Sheriff Berrong doesn't comment on pending lawsuits?

See DT article here ((link...)), where a doctor is suing for being arrested on his own property with some hunting dogs:

Blount County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Marian O’Briant said Monday that Berrong does not comment on pending lawsuits.

Then compare here, at last night's rally that really went pretty far into detail on an impending case: ((link...))

Also speaking after the meeting, Berrong said he supports Young completely.
“I can’t say enough positive things about Judge Young,” he said.

“I wholeheartedly agree with Mayor Cunningham’s statements,” he added.

Funny these would show up in the same edition of the Daily Times.

Politics 24/7

When you read his quotes you have to wonder how he ever graduated from law school much less worked in the U.S. Attorneys office.

See Gonzo. U.S. Attorneys are a political appointment. And as we have seen with our mayor, a self described "conduit or messenger, if you will", it's all politics - all the time.

The "Testicular Fortitude" Test

Greetings:

I submit this comment as a human being, as opposed to my normal occupation as an attorney:

Since the topic of "Testicular Fortitude" has been raised by Mayor Jerry Cunningham, and no specific definition of said term has been forthcoming (other than to accuse 'anonymous bloggers' like myself of the lack of same), I have perused the blogosphere to define Jerry's terminology . . . please take the test to determine if you have "what it takes":

The day the fortitude died...

Here lies the true meaning of the words testicular fortitude.

RIP Bro!

We aren't the only bloggers in Blount County

One or two folks at the meeting the other night have also been known to blog - or whatever the devil you call it: ((link...)).

But Have They Taken "The Test"?

I reviewed the comments of these bloggers and wonder if they have taken the Testicular Fortitude test?

The "Test"

As initiator of the now famous test, I have to stand up and be counted! I am the crazy lady that sent the link to the now almost famous attorney that posted this whole "test" madness. What fun we have....

BTW, its platinum for me!
