I probably shouldn’t use a word such as “obtuse” when discussing someone who doesn’t know that “transparent” and “opaque” are antonyms. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know an antonym from a synonym, any more than he knows his ass from a hole in the ground. I think Giuliani and his client should be punished for using transparent pretext (or is it opaque pretext?) to gain access to the federal courts so they can pull a clumsy bait-and-switch. I think an ordinary lawyer with an ordinary client would be disbarred.
