Not just the judge! It was a jury trial and deliberation took only 30 minutes to return with that verdict. If there isn't an investigation into that decision, then the UK justice system is a total sham.

That was a real WTF paragraph. I'll share another example from the current American political scene.

The Donald enlisted the endorsement of Sarah Palin—the inimitable Mistress of Word Salad. Here, for your enjoyment, is a section of her speech supporting Trump's run for (shudder) the presidency. This is from DAILY KOS and the commentary by Hunter is in italics.
Sarah Palin remains largely untranslatable. She lives in her own little world, and describes it to the rest of us by shouting into a crystal vase of battery acid and leaving us to decipher the vibrations.

And he, who would negotiate deals, kind of with the skills of a community organizer maybe organizing a neighborhood tea, well, he deciding that, 'No, America would apologize as part of the deal,' as the enemy sends a message to the rest of the world that they capture and we kowtow, and we apologize, and then, we bend over and say, "Thank you, enemy."

Reaganesque.

Where, in the private sector, you actually have to balance budgets in order to prioritize, to keep the main thing, the main thing, and he knows the main thing: a president is to keep us safe economically and militarily. He knows the main thing, and he knows how to lead the charge. So troops, hang in there, because help’s on the way because he, better than anyone, isn’t he known for being able to command, fire!

I realize this may be a bit confusing, but the first quote was referring to Barack Obama, and the second is praise of Donald Trump. Obviously.

Trump’s candidacy, it has exposed not just that tragic ramifications of that betrayal of the transformation of our country, but too, he has exposed the complicity on both sides of the aisle that has enabled it, okay?

Okay.

Well, and then, funny, ha ha, not funny, but now, what they’re doing is wailing, well, Trump and his, uh, uh, uh, Trumpeters, they’re not conservative enough.

Oh my goodness gracious.Trumpeters.

You know, they stomp on our neck, and then they tell us, “Just chill, okay just relax.” Well, look, we are mad, and we’ve been had. They need to get used to it.

I'm trying to figure out how to translate that into something you could put on a bumper sticker. It's not working.

In fact it’s time to drill, baby, drill down, and hold these folks accountable.

Better, but I still can't see drill baby drill down stuck to a truck bumper. Or maybe I can.

And you quit footin’ the bill for these nations who are oil-rich, we’re paying for some of their squirmishes that have been going on for centuries.

Squirmishes.

And [Trump] has, he’s spent his life with the workin’ man.

Technically true, until the robot butlers are perfected.

He builds things, he builds big things, things that touch the sky

All right, I think we're done here.

He doesn’t get his power, his high, off of OPM, other people’s money, like a lot of dopes in Washington do.

Thanks, but we're done. See you next—

President Obama will be able to look up, and there, over his head, he’ll be able to see that shining, towering, Trump tower.

Oh for God's sake, somebody take her microphone away.

In theory, Donald Trump claims to be mulling a position in the Trump administration for Palin. No doubt a Pentagon post is in the works, perhaps Undersecretary of Squirmishes or the like.

Is that the speech she made? Now I understand why I heard a comment wondering whether she was on meth.

That's just part of it. She went on quite a while. I admit I wanted to shut it off, but I was riveted to the TV in absolute disbelief. How can anyone over the age of 5 not see she's an idiot? :yikes:
